You will enjoy. Got my 1000 about 6 weeks ago and have used it almost every day. Cold weather does not seem to affect operation. Regarding pellets. Try the ones that come with the grill. Try to find a dealer close by so you don't have to pay shipping. experiment and choose what you like.
the 1000 will not use the amount of pellets the traeger uses. Insulation is tremendous.
Like John said, look for local sources. Whatever you buy, try to find out the true blend of the pellets.
Long term, look for other PelletHeads on forums and order a pallet to your area. MaxQue on the forum (Chris) is from that state).
CS has been selling FE pellets for the last year or so, I'd certainly check them out for price.
Don't use the heat pellets, you need food pellets. Whatever you find, just call them up and ask for local sources, what their blend is. Get to know you pellets. It's all about BTU's and flavor of the wood.
papasmurph I live in Woodstock. I usually order 60 lbs @ time from CS/FE (Hickory)and they run just over $1 @ lb w/shipping. Not sure but I think you need to order a 1 ton pallet for any substantial price break. I'll ask Terry next time I call in an order.
