A wood pellet grill is an outdoor cooking device that burns wood pellets made from compressed hardwood instead of gas or charcoal. This allows wood pellet grills to create a consistent and controllable fire that is easy to use and infuses your food with authentic wood-fired flavor. Traeger Grills invented wood pellet grills in 1987.
Traeger Invented the Original Wood-Fired Grill over 30 years ago in Mt. Angel, Oregon. We continue to lead the industry as the world’s #1 selling wood-fired grill, perfected by decades of mastering the craft of wood-fired cooking. A Traeger grill will transform the way you cook because it creates consistent results, every single time. Fuel your hunger for wood-fired flavor with Traeger.
Wood pellets are moved from the hopper to the fire pot by an auger. When the pellets reach the fire pot, they’re ignited by the HotRod to feed the flames and add delicious wood-fired flavor to your food. A fan circulates heat and smoke for even, consistent cooking, and a drip tray keeps flames off your food and prevents flare-ups. It’s all operated by a controller that maintains precise temperature so you can spend more time with the people who matter most and less time watching the grill.
Hardwood pellets fuel the fire and add incredible flavor.
