    Default Grilla Grills

    I've been dabbing around, kicking the idea, mulling even .. the thought of a pellet pooper. I've heard from a few live sources and several internet sources of issues with Traegers catching fire.

    I've looked at other brands too but they seem to be pretty proud of them. I've looked at Grilla Grills online and they seem to have good reviews overall. Not all US made but I might overlook it since I put such low miles on cookers these days and free shipping.

    Has anyone seen these in life? More specifically I'm looking at the Silverbac. I'm wondering if they fall apart if you yell at them or if they are as sturdy as other name brands.

    Seems kind of silly to lust another cooker but I'm PigCicles and I have a problem.

    Any comments, concerns, suggestions welcome.

    I've seen them in a store up close and personal. Quality appeared to be excellent. I've also seen a few posts on a forum about them with nothing but good things to say about them. But no first hand or even second hand experience.

    I do know a guy who had a Traeger catch on fire. Electrical problems.

    Thanks Tom. I've heard too much about the Traeger fires to really consider them. It's hard to justify buying another cooker but the problem runs deep in my soul lol.

    Don't know anything about those. I've had a Traeger for 8 years, never had a fire. I've been looking at other brands. Smokin Brothers has some nice ones made here in Missouri. Look better built than mine.



    If I decide to upgrade, I'm probably going with a Yoder YS640. They are more expensive, but built like a tank.
