They are also made of hvy steel instead of sheet metal so they recover almost instantly. Traeger is good, as is Green Mountain. I like digital controls, not the 5 position dial. Way more versatile. I am not familiar with the pit boss grills but that doesn't mean anything. (I saw a nice review when I googled them) I'd check and see if you can upgrade the controller to the digital. (it looks like a traeger controller so you may be able to swap with traeger parts.
Pellets can be expensive- we group buy a couple times a year and have a pallet shipped in. Our price that way is usually $12-$13 per 40lb bag... as opposed to $15-$18 per 20 lb bag locally!
I love cooking outdoors!
With the temperature swing I'm guessing it's an Ortech, not a PID. There are aftermarket upgrades to put a PID on it. But in reading the reviews it looks like the Ortech might actually provide more smoke. I'm a fan of the heavier smoke flavor when I do brisket.
