This grill is still listed as $699 in Academy Sports stores, and $699 on Amazon. If you purchase online with pickup in store at Academy (Only works if they have it in stock), you can snag it for $499. I suspect this is a mistake price, so not sure how long it will last. I just purchase and picked up in my area yesterday, so can validate that it works.

Paying that much for a grill is definitely a PM. good job OP, definitely didn't piss anyone off this time around.

this is a crappy model and not a price mistake. Spend you money on a Rectec or something thats good at smoking otherwise wait for a deal on a camp chef. Traegers arent worth the price they charge. this particular grill isnt worth 100 bucks in my opinion

I agree this model has temp control issues so I wouldn't recommend it esp at $500. However the Traeger brand as a whole is solid and their quality is why. Dicks had the $900 34" Texas elite model for $500 out the door within the past year and HD cleared their similar Eastwood 34 for similar... deals can be had but this isn't one unless you're desperate..

I saw the big Tex at Costco (N Idaho) a couple weeks ago for $599. (Not a road show)
Traeger isn't a great grill but for $600 it's hard to beat with Costco return warranty. I've got 6 years or so on mine and it's still working well.

No their quality compared to price is not solid. look at the ton of comparisons to similarly priced models from competitors. Traegers are a name brand but build quality of the cheaper models.

Clueless. They're 499 all the time and ridiculously small.

Not remotely a pm. This is the normal price at our local home depot.

Ok random guy on internet. You win. As my signature says I don't know anything about grills or smokers. I also don't argue on the internet with people that know everything.
