Traeger grills take the labor-intensive element out achieving delicious wood-fired taste. Just set it and forget it, and let the Traeger do the rest.

The Process

  • Convection Process

    An induction fan circulates rich, hardwood smoke throughout the cook chamber for even heat and epic flavor distribution.

  • Hopper

    Load the hopper to the brim with 100% Hardwood for hours of smoking and grilling without reloading.

  • Auger

    It fuels the fire, moving Hardwood from Hopper to Fire Pot—briskly for hot and fast, or gradually for low and slow cooking.

  • Firepot

    A hot rod at the bottom of the Fire Pot ignites the Hardwood, keeping the fire going so you can relax and drink a cold one.

  • Energy Economy

    Powered by a standard, household outlet, it uses 300 watts for the first four minutes and only 50 watts for the rest of the cook.

  • Shut Down Cycle

    This sweet setting keeps the induction fan running for 10 minutes to lift residual ash from the fire pot and shuts off automatically.

This is my 4th smoker, and the first one that didn't require constant attention (sleep loss....). I should have got this years ago. I put in quite a bit of research because of the price range of this type of smoker, and finally settled on Traeger because of the consistent great reviews. I am not disappointed. Great smoke and a constant temperature = success! I have had a small issue with flame outs, its happened 3 or 4 times in 3 years. Then I figured out it only happened on windy days. Now I set it slightly inside my garage and it hasn't happened since.

Thanks to Lance who saved the day this evening...the Lil Tex fan was not working when I turned on the smoker...he told me to check to see if it was spinning freely because sometimes things catch on the blades. He was had a small piece of a pellet binding the blade...thanks again--four years on the Traeger and this was the first time any challenges came up.

Couldn't get any better
We love it, how much better could it get. Put your pork butt on the grill and go do something else, come back later check it and soon you will have the best pork you have ever eaten, put your vegies on there to and sit down and enjoy. Nedless to say we love it and will use it during our long wet winters.
