I have both! They both have their purposes. If your more into set it and forget it, the Traeger is the way to go. The Traeger Timberline is what I have and its great but not really for grilling. The Egg is better for grilling. If your smoking a brisket, ribs or pork butt give me the Traeger all day!!! Burgers, Steaks, etc I like my Egg.

I don’t have a traeger but do have a large big green egg. With a Digiq controller, the BGE can be set up and pretty much left alone for hours. Even without the controller, it’s not something that takes a lot of monitoring once you get used to it.

The BGE is very versatile and I do brisket, pork butts, turkeys, chicken, pizza, fish, veggies, steaks. I would recommend getting an aftermarket cast iron grill and use that for most things especially grilling instead of the stainless one that comes with the unit.

The only negative I see is that the cooking surface is pretty limited so you won’t be able to get a lot of food on it at once like what’s possible with an offset.

But overall, it’s been the best cooking grill I’ve ever come across. Barely uses any lump charcoal. A few chunks of whatever wood you like provides all the smoke needed. It’s very economical to operate.
