The Tailgater is serious fun, wood-fired business. It's perfectly portable, and fires up full-fledged flavor on the fly. Get ready to grill everywhere.

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 5 minutes to lift residual ash from the fire pot and shuts off automatically.

Amazing, flavorful food
I couldn't ask for better flavorful food that comes from our Traeger tailgater. I definitely think that the money was well spent. I love the combination of grilled and smoked food.

I would definitely recommend one of the various grills available, not to mention the various items that assist in the completion of the flavorful food small or large scale.

I am looking to buy the firepit as a gift for my mother-in-law who absolutely loves the meats that we have cooked on our grill since I purchased the grill for my husband on 8282015 for his birthday.

I will never want to switch grills again.

We love our tailgating grill and cannot wait to accessorize.
Could use a drop leaf shelf with the grill, otherwise no complaints.

Traeger tailgating grill - bronze
I purchased the tailgating grill back in August of 2015 for my husbands birthday present, in addition to a couple of the various wood pellets available.

I cannot say enough how much we enjoy the food that comes from this grill. The smoked grilled flavors make any food item the best grilled food we have ever eaten. A hamburger isn't just a hamburger anymore with the rich smokey flavor of apple wood, cherry, hickory, among several other varieties available.

We are truly satisfied with the purchase and look forward to buying some of the other products available, such as shelves, rubs, and covers.

No matter what product is purchased, I believe customers will enjoy for many food functions for years. The fire pit is an option in which I am thinking of giving as a gift.

The only thing that would help make this a better purchase is to have the grill come with a drop-shelf.

Q. How is the tailgater powered? 12V DC?
Encinitas, California
A. The tailgater, along with all of our grills, run off of 120V AC. If you want to use it as DC you can use our power inverter.

Q. What is the height of the Tailgater when the legs are folded up? I want to see if it will fit in the bed of my Ram 3500 under my tonneau cover. Thanks...
