Traeger wood pellets are made from 100% natural hardwood – that means no fillers, binding agents, bark material or artificial additives – sourced from five Traeger-owned U.S. mill facilities. The different types of wood we use burn and release flavor differently, so each pellet flavor requires its own unique blend of natural hardwoods to provide consistent flavor and performance.
The production of all of our wood pellets involves using a small amount of food-grade soybean oil, which functions as a lubricant for our machines. In some specialty wood pellet flavors, the food-grade soybean oil is infused with natural woods, herbs or citrus. During our patented production process, the food-grade soybean oil helps combine these natural flavors into our 100% hardwood pellets. This delivers the perfect amount of flavor while maintaining the optimal burn-to-smoke ratio.
As the only company that owns and operates its entire pellet production – from mill to grill – Traeger is able to offer the highest standard U.S.-made, food-grade quality pellets.
