While there is nothing wrong with owning products manufactured outside of the United States (I personally own a few myself), there is something to be said for Made in the USA. I know my next purchase will be domestic and very likely will be a custom, small manufacturer.

The more that I see these beautiful rigs show up in my social media feeds, the more I am set on the idea. So while I am very familiar with some of the big name brands such as Traeger and certain models of Weber, I feel my heart is set on the smaller businesses that have a more rustic look.
