The Process

  • Convection Process

    An induction fan circulates rich, hardwood smoke throughout the cook chamber for even heat and epic flavor distribution.

  • Hopper

    Load the hopper to the brim with 100% Hardwood for hours of smoking and grilling without reloading.

  • Auger

    It fuels the fire, moving Hardwood from Hopper to Fire Pot—briskly for hot and fast, or gradually for low and slow cooking.

  • Firepot

    A hot rod at the bottom of the Fire Pot ignites the Hardwood, keeping the fire going so you can relax and drink a cold one.

  • Energy Economy

    Powered by a standard, household outlet, it uses 300 watts for the first four minutes and only 50 watts for the rest of the cook.

  • Shut Down Cycle

    This sweet setting keeps the induction fan running for 10 minutes to lift residual ash from the fire pot and shuts off automatically.

Love it
I have had my junior for about 4 months I started off with the chicken challenge and its all good from burgers to 3 racks of ribs!! the ribs were good for 5-6 adults.
the latest was the candied salmon that was easy and a big hit! seems to be portable enough with out the folding legs but that might be my next upgrade.

Best Darn Way to Cook
I've had my Traeger Junior for almost 4 years now, and it is my primary cooking surface despite whether or not its snowing. It doesn't seem to matter what you put on it, it will taste better with the Traeger than without it. And even though the Junior sounds small, it cooks more than enough food to have 6 or 7 people over for any meal. My only regret is that I didn't buy a bigger one.

Great Results, but needs higher quality parts
I absolutely love my Junior. I've had it for about 3 years and now the inside coating is coming off. I noticed a strange ash on my food one day, it looked like burned paper. I noticed the inside coating or paint or whatever it is, was pealing off. I have always bragged about my Traeger and I think it's the best cooking tool I've ever had, but I think they need make their product better by using higher quality material.

Q. How many amps does the Junior Elite 20 draw?
Lake Charles, Louisiana
A. All of our grills use about 4 Amps for the first 4 minutes, then drop to 1.5 Amps for the remainder of the cooking process.

Q. What's the longest period of time the grill can smoke unattended (overnight, etc) before it runs out of fuel (pellets) and needs to be refilled? I have the Junior (non-elite) model.
San Francisco
A. The Junior has a smaller hopper, it holds around 8 lbs. of hardwood. Typically, you use about 1 lb. per hour. Going off of this, you'd be able to leave the grill for about 8 hours. However, ideally you should check the pellet level at 6 hours. Pellet burn-through can change with weather conditions. Traeger on!
