Traeger grills take the labor-intensive element out achieving delicious wood-fired taste. Just set it and forget it, and let the Traeger do the rest.

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.

Great Grill
This was my first pellet grill that I've purchased, and have had for a couple of years. I also purchased 2 other grills, one small for my trailer, and another pellet grill for home use, the reason is that I cook for a lot of people and have parties. I can't say anything bad about it, it works great and is really simple to use. For instance, I call home and have someone turn the unit on to "smoke", I get home and throw a piece of salmon on a plank. Run errands for about an hour, kick up the temp to 350 for a bit, and it's perfect, I mean every time.
People say that my bbq ribs are the best, pulled pork is, turkey, burgers are also easy to cook.
I always have a spare bag of pellets in the garage, keep it clean, and it's going to be your new best friend.

My Best Smoker Ever!!!!
I bought my Lil Tex in 2012. It came with an analog controller. All I have done is add an Ortech T100 controller so I could have digital. I am an older dude. Been running a smoker a long time now. This is by far the best smoker/grill, I have ever owned. I can't recommend it enough. If you can follow directions, this smoker is worry free. My controller maintains the temperatures I set it on too. I have never had it act up during a smoke. No flare ups, no shut downs nothing. I vacuum it after every third smoke. If you want a smoker get a Traeger.

Happy grilling, smoking or cooking.

The Temperature Control setting to me is not that accurate according to the temperature probe that was placed inside the grill (just saying). I'm just now learning
Good Job Traeger.
