Wood pellet grills burn wood to effectively cook your food with a wood-fired taste that is second to none. But how does a wood pellet grill actually work? There are five main components that work together to create your fire and an even temperature for precise cooking every time you use your Traeger wood fired grill. Check out the Traeger difference at Fishers Do it Center your hometown Traeger Dealer.
The hopper holds 100% pure hardwood Traeger pellets, which come in a variety of flavors.
The controller delivers and maintains even temperatures throughout cooking, much like an oven.
The auger transports your wood pellets from the hopper to the fire pot.
4. Fire Pot
The fire pot contains a hot rod, which starts the fire, and a fan to continuously stoke the fire. This creates a convection of heat spinning around your food.
5. Drip Tray
The drip tray does two main things. It keeps direct flames off of your food to prevent burning, and it catches food drippings, which also prevents burning caused by flare ups. *Cover your drip tray with Traeger Aluminum Drip Tray Liners for easy clean up!
Pellet grills are versatile. ... Because a pellet grill works like a convection oven, you can load up the cook chamber without fear of uneven cooking. You don't normally over-smoke food on a pellet grill. The smoke flavor is more subtle than the sometimes acrid smoke generated by a straight wood or charcoal fire.
Traeger’s signature flavor comes from the real hardwood pellets used to fire every Traeger grill. Whether its Apple, Mesquite or Hickory, Traeger owners and grill enthusiasts agree wood flavor just tastes better than charcoal or gas.
Traeger's digitally controlled convection heating system simplifies cooking. With easy temperature settings, much like an oven, you're able to take your eyes off of your grill without sacrificing the food. Traeger is giving you freedom to enjoy your cookouts again!
Traeger grills are so versatile that you can cook six different ways: grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise, and BBQ to become a true grill master. Cook hot and fast or low and slow, just set the temperature and go!
Once you master a recipe, you would like to consistently cook the same each and every time. Traeger allows you to do so by managing the temperature for you. No more tending to the fire or moving food from hot to warm spots on the grill. We make it easy to make a great meal!
To light your Traeger grill, first make sure the power switch is off. Then, plug in your grill. You'll want to make sure the hopper is full of pellets and your RTD temperature probe is nice and clean.
Open the grill lid, turn the power switch on, and set your temperature dial to smoke. It should take about 4-5 minutes before the fire gets started and you hear that jet engine sound in your grill. Next, close your grill lid, set the dial to your desired temperature, and you're off and Traegering!
*If you have a 2016 Pro Series grill with the new controller and the advanced grilling logic, make sure you close your grill in the start up cycle within about 2-3 minutes.
Check out Traeger's chicken hanger! Depending on the size of your Traeger grill, you'll be able to fit 2-3 chicken hangers. Each hanger holds 12 chicken legs, and the hanger is dishwasher safe!
Convected heat will circulate around and push the heat to the center of your chicken. Because your chicken is hanging, it's self-basting for the juiciest chicken yet!
