Again when I took it camping this weekend it kept tripping the circut on the pole but would work when I plugged it into the camper. I made a Pizza Fatty for my friends & they really enjoyed it. :1987_food:
Well ever since I read the Smoked Meatloaf Thread a light bulb went off in my head that I haven't made one in a looooonnnnggg time & needed to do one :shrug:
So yesterday afternoon I mixed together some hamb & ground pork & went out to start the grill & NO FAN!! that sucked ......so off to the place I bought it from & I left it overnight.:willy_nilly:
Picked it up this am & they showed me the temp control board was fried & they put a new one in. got it home & it still didn't work! :mad: (They said it was working)
So back out I went & they replaced the fan motor assembly.
We are smokin a meatloaf as I speak:woohoo:
Seems the fan motor burnt & fried the temp control board.
Hats off to the folks @ Smith Brothers meats in Colby Wi. And it seems there is a 3 year warrantee on the grill so there was no charge to me. Thats a good thing as I use the Traeger about 3 to 4 times a week.

Have you heard about the warranty on my stick burner? Yeah, when it quits working, I know I forgot to add another log. :roflmaoha0:

Constipated pellet pooper? :roflmaoha0:

Actually..........A couple weeks ago I did have a constipated pellet pooper. It was very windy & rainy & I forgot to cover the grille & somehow some rain got into the hopper & disintigrated some of the pellets & the wet dust plugged the auger hole! :tap: It was almost like it was glued shut!!!:roflmaoha0:
I had to blow it out with the air compressor!

Did I also tell you Guys I heat my house with a pellet pooper! Have been for the past 16 years. They are nice for these Wisconsin winters. Prior to that I used a "stickburner" Will never go back to one of them.
I Love my pellet poopers, Dispite their flaws. Nothing in this world is perfect. I like the no mess no fuss they offer.

So keep the pooper jokes a flying, Doesn't bother me in the least. :saythat: I would expect nothing less from you guys.
I love being a part of this Joint!:D

No, BluBalls, I got a Turd smoker! I've smoked a ton of Texans on that thing.:msn-wink::roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0::roflmaoha0:
