When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 275 degrees F and preheat lid closed, 10-15 minutes.
Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and place directly on the grill grate. Grill until internal temperature reaches 120 degrees F. Remove from grill and set aside to cool.
Place the cooled salmon fillets in a large bowl and break up with a fork. Add onions, celery, bell pepper, dill, lemon zest, salt and pepper, bread crumbs and eggs. Mix well.
Shape the salmon mixture into 6 patties, roughly 2" wide. Increase grill temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
Place a cast iron pan on the grill grate to preheat. Add olive oil to the pre-heated cast iron pan. When the oil is hot, add the patties to the cast iron and cook in batches.
Cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping once halfway through or until sides are golden brown. Enjoy!
