How Does a Traeger Grill Work?
Traegers owe their versatility to the balance of smoke and heat that keeps them operating at a steady temperature, ranging from 150 – 450°F. The smoke-heat dynamic duo also produces the consistent, flavorful results for which Traeger grills are most famous.
Wood-pellet grills envelop food with rich, dense smoke and even heat. This combo produces radiant, conductive, and convection heat, effortlessly cooking food while infusing it with authentic, aromatic wood-fired flavor. As an added bonus, Traeger grills simply plug into a socket to get started, using minimal energy to yield awesome results.
Its digital temperature control makes using a Traeger grill as easy as setting your oven. You’ll never have to worry or fuss over a live fire again, and you can cook with confidence knowing your Traeger will maintain a consistent temperature.
For best quality and health assurance, ALWAYS use genuine Traeger wood pellets to fuel your wood-fired grill. Check the chart below for tips on choosing the right wood pellets for every food you cook.
Hardwood Pellets & Meat Pairings
A pellet fuel that provides a balanced burn is essential to wood-fire-grilling success. To help you get the most – and best – from your grill, Traeger has developed a variety of wood pellets crafted from a special blend of hardwoods.
For a mild flavor profile, the oak, maple, and alder blends are ideal; if you’re looking for something with a bit more bravado, alder blended with apple, pecan, cherry, hickory, or mesquite woods will do the trick.
A note from Traeger: using any brand of pellets other than genuine Traeger Wood Pellets will void your warranty.
Friendly Fuels for Healthy Foods
Quality hardwood pellets, like those from Traeger, are both healthy for you and for the environment. Cooking with indirect heat creates far fewer carcinogenic compounds on food than other cooking methods and produces only smoke and ash (a reusable resource – hello, garden!) as byproducts. Plus, cooking over wood just tastes better than using charcoal or gas, and Traeger has crafted the best wood-pellet grill on the market today.
So which Traeger grill should you buy? The answer depends largely on your preferred grill size, cooking power/BTUs, and budget. There are a variety of options, so take a look at the various models to see which will grill work best for your needs and the type of cooking you like to do. Either way, your new Traeger Grill will provide wood-fired perfection that turns ordinary meals into masterpieces.
