Costco now has a new model of Traeger Lil Texas Elite grill for $399.

There are some slight differences from the Costco model and the normal Elite. It is model BBQ07C instead of BBQ07E.

The Smoke Stack cap and door are not in Stainless steel (Bonus in my opinion) they are
in normal black powder coat like the standard Lil Texas

The BBQ07C only has two wheeled legs not four.

Besides that the BBQ07C is exactly like the BBQ07E and even has the newest digital temperature controller.

On top of the 3 year warranty you get from Traeger ...Costco gives a lifetime money back on these.

MSRP for BBQ07E is $799. Normal price is probably closer to $699. The BBQ07C is only $399.

Here is the kicker... The BBQ07C is a new model and will be carried in Costco stores on an ongoing basis. During the Traeger events the sales guy will not display these and will hide or remove the price sign above these... He does not make a commission on these.

I bought the Junior for $299 (smaller, not as well made and without digital thermostat for $299) and ended up returning it for this one. Just the thermostat alone is worth $70-80 dollars.

Going to stop by the Traeger show at Costco later today in northern CA. I spoke to the Traeger rep on the phone and he said they had the following models with them for sale:

Junior - $299
Lil Tex Elite - $499
(Big) Texas - $799
Select - $999

They also had covers for the LTEs for $40, and bags of pellets discounted by $5. All of the models are Costco-specific, and features may vary compared to retail models on their website.

Are these the prices all the time at Costco, or ONLY during the Traeger shows?

[QUOTE=Luv2BBQ;60808336]A buddy of mine bought one of these last year at Costco.

2 drawbacks to this smoker...

First, you must buy the pellets from Traeger, and they're not the best value. According to the "salesman" in Costco, Traeger pellets are custom sized.

Second, the unit uses a "corkscrew" to feed pellets to the heating element, but often times the residue from the burned pellets on a long smoke causes pellets to back up, and smoke diminishes.

And just remembered a third...if your hopper is full of apple pellets, and you want to smoke salmon, you have to get all the apple pellets out in order to put in alder pellets.shake head

Not true
I use camp chief pellets in my Treager without a problem
