Long story short, Iím awaiting the delivery of a Green Mountain Grills Davy Crockett model. Itís a compact pellet smoker/ grill that runs on 12 volt power. Iíve done a little research and found a whole lot of people recommending it over the compact Traeger unit. Since Iím just venturing into the world of smoking and only cooking for myself or maybe one other person I didnít want to make a huge investment in a large unit right off the bat. This should allow me to get started and see what other features or functions I might want later on, but do yíall have any advice for a first timer with one of these pellet grills?
