Traeger Ranger

I have a Traeger pellet grill at home. I am considering a Traeger Ranger pellet grill to use while camping. Anyone have one and can share some thoughts? Also, how does it do when you are dry camping and use an inverter to power?
Thanks.

Purchased our Traeger on the road this summer on a whim. It has been wonderful and our primary way to cook outside. It came with a tiny little inverter specifically for use with the cooker. We have never used it but Traeger supplied it so I assume it will work.

Due to my sheltered life, I have never heard of them. I googled it and it looks interesting. May check it out further.

I have one and like it. Had a Davey Crockett, but it was getting a little heavy for the MH. It won't handle the larger items like the DC, but it cooks a mean steak and does good on chicken too. Much lighter and easier to handle.

We have several in use in the park we are in now. I looked at them and decided it was too small to do what we wanted and wound up with a Green Mountain Grill, Davy Crockett smoker. It is a larger unit and can smoke larger pieces of meat. Make sure it will fit your needs.

X2. I purchased a thermal blanket for mine, and it really cut down the pellet usage. I smoked a 14 lb turkey yesterday. Also, it can run directly on d/c.

It's small but for just 2 people it's great. I've done a full rack of baby back ribs (cut in half) 5 lb brisket (point), 5 lb pork butt, 3 rib prime, tri tip, whole chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers. It pulls about 2.5 amps and runs fine on the inverter.

I have the ASMOKE 300 and love it. Iím 77 and have no trouble loading/unloading it into a cargo bay. When we are home it sits on our back deck for use at home.
Never used it with an inverter but, have no reason to doubt it wouldnít work.
I like the ASMOKE because it has a sliding drip pan to expose the flame and sear.

I am still on the fence about the Traeger. Have had mine for several months and it cooks fine and plenty big enough for the two of us. I love to smoke and make several pork butts a year. I don't know if I put too large of one on but I couldn't seem to get the bark on it like my larger smoker and the Davey Crockett that I had before the Traeger.
