Taste The Difference
Food coming off a Traeger grill simply tastes better… It is just that simple! In
fact, most people purchase Traeger products because they have already tasted the
Traeger difference at a backyard BBQ at a friend’s house or at a Traeger demonstration
at a local business. But be careful - once you taste it, you’ll be hooked…
With Traeger, you can have amazing barbeque in your own backyard. Apple
smoked bacon, cherry chicken, mesquite flavored brisket, hickory ham, maple smoked
salmon… your imagination just might be your only limitation.
Cooking with Wood
The experts agree, if you want the ultimate outdoor cooking experience, you will need to use hardwood. However, up until now you have been given only two choices for grilling, propane or charcoal. Finally, technology has caught up and a healthier, safer and tastier alternative has arrived.
Before Traeger Wood Pellet Grills, you just couldn’t cook with wood unless you wanted to dig up your backyard, build a pit, cut down the trees, chop the wood, and make the fire ... that sounds like a lot of work.
At Traeger, we make cooking simple.
We have eight flavors of wood pellets that provide great taste to every dish. The amazing taste the pellets provide is just one of the many benefits, there are no artificial binders. You can't say that about the other grilling options.
Additionally, Traeger cares about our environment. All Traeger Wood Pellet Grills reduce your carbon footprint and are made from 100% natural material. That means nothing harmful is cooking your food. That’s something we think is important.
As far as cost, wood pellets win there as well. Propane costs twice as much per BTU as natural wood pellets, and as far as charcoal is concerned, are there really any benefits?
Why Use Traeger Natural Wood Pellets?
Traeger natural wood pellets are different than all others. We are one of the few wood pellet grill companies that manufactures our own wood pellets. Why is this important? By manufacturing our own pellets, we carefully control the quality and purity of our raw material supply. Traeger natural wood pellets are made with only 100% VIRGIN hard wood material that has never been processed or recycled.
What is the big deal about VIRGIN wood?
In our ongoing testing and research of hardwood pellets, we found that many other wood pellet manufacturers frequently utilize recycled wood material. Recycled wood material many times will include treated or painted wood (from sources such as hardwood floors and furniture) and particle board or MDF to name just a few. Did you know that formaldehyde is a chemical used widely by industry to manufacture building materials, particularly pressed wood products such as particle board and that most hardwood floors are treated with polyurethane? Would you really want to be grilling your dinner over these types of potentially toxic materials?
Processed wood by-products such as formaldehyde and polyurethane are extremely undesirable for use in barbeque pellets as they may produce toxic fumes and unpredictable variations in how pellets burn.
Unfortunately at this time, there is little regulation over wood pellet content in the United States and what little regulation does exist is aimed at the wood pellet stove industry. Due to this, many large pellet manufacturers obtain hardwood from wherever they can, including using the cheaper recycled wood sources. At Traeger, we are committed to providing consistently high quality, SAFE hardwood barbeque pellets to maximize the Traeger experience and our customer’s safety. We provide a measure of quality control that is unmatched in the industry.
We vigorously monitor our selected raw material suppliers to insure strict compliance with our demanding standards as we do not particularly care to have our food or our children’s food flavored with polyurethane or formaldehyde. We suspect that you feel the same way.
Why would you cook with anything else? Stop grilling, start TRAEGER'ing!
