The Tailgater 20 wood pellet grill is considered to be the somehow final evolution of the Traeger Junior Elite—it’s a bit more expensive, but also a bit more effective.
You will need to spend around $500 for the Tailgater 20, and this price is higher because of 2 reasons—a bigger hopper capacity, and ultra-stable legs.
The Tailgater 20 has a 25% larger hopper capacity, which can hold up to 10 lbs.
This will give you 25% more grilling time with just a single refile—giving you more time to have fun and chat as your grill runs in the background.
This grill comes with more stable legs, which makes it less portable than the Junior Elite or the Tailgater.
Apart from the features mentioned above, you will get 300 sq. in. of grilling space, a digital temperature control, and porcelain grates.
This is not a bad thing for a grill with such a price tag.
In addition to this, the Tailgater 20 is also HOA approved, which means you can use it on your back porch or patio without having to worry about anything.
