THE ORIGINAL WOOD PELLET GRILL
It all began over 30 years ago in Mt. Angel, Oregon, sparked by an innovator’s idea to focus on the food, and not the grill.
From those humble beginnings, a wood-fired revolution was launched, spreading like wildfire, and ultimately forging Traeger into the number one selling wood-pellet grill in the world.
Our goal is to continually innovate, with an ambition to make outdoor cooking easier and better tasting. We’ll help you spend less time tending to the grill, and more time on bringing family and friends together, creating a more flavorful world.
HOW IT WORKS
Our wood pellet grills use an auger to move hardwood pellets from the hopper, to the fire pot within the grill. The higher the set temperature, the more pellets dispensed into the auger. Once in the fire pot, a hot rod ignites the pellets, starting a fire. A fan then stokes the flames, creating convection heat, (just like an oven) to cook your food in the grill evenly. A drip tray sits over the fire pot, keeping direct flames off your food, while catching drippings to help prevent flare-ups.
1. Hopper: flavor begins here. Simply add the wood pellet flavor of your choice to fuel your grill.
2. Controller: turn on the grill and set your desired temperature.
3. Auger: industry best drivetrain delivers hardwood pellets to the fire pot.
4. Fire pot: auto-ignition starts the hot rod, which ignites the pellets and creates the fire.
5. Fan: variable speed fan stokes the fire while simultaneously circulating smoke and heat around your food.
Setting your grill is as easy as setting your oven with Traeger. Our digital controllers ensure that you get consistent temperatures throughout your cook. The new Pro, Ironwood and Timberline series all come equipped with WiFIRE® enabled controllers - giving you the ability to adjust temperatures in 5-degree increments, for pure precision cooking.

With Traeger’s famously simple Set-it & Forget-it® ability, creating flavor-packed meals has never been easier. Simply load up your hopper with pellets, put your food on the grill, and let the heat and smoke do the heavy lifting for you.

From low and slow, to hot and fast, cook it all with ease.
NOT ALL PELLETS ARE CREATED EQUAL
The best-selling wood-fired grill demands the best pellets on the market. Real taste doesn't just happen - it's made from 100% pure hardwood, producing perfect smoke. At Traeger we don't merely manufacture our own pellets, we created the "gold standard" in pellet production. This ensures your fuel delivers pure, hardwood taste, and incredible consistency in your cooks, time after time.
Fruit woods like cherry and apple impart a sweeter flavor and match perfectly with poultry, pork and baked goods. Bolder staples like oak, hickory and mesquite are tailor-made for savory beef, pork, and vegetables.
