When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Close the lid, turn the temperature setting to High and allow the grill to preheat for 10-15 minutes.

Before grilling, brush the salmon with the BBQ sauce mixture. Place directly on the grill, skin side down and grill for approximately 5 minutes on each side until fish is firm, flaky, and opaque.

Sprinkle with additional sliced green onions and serve.
