How to Clean Your Grill & Pellet Grill Maintenance

  1. Spray the grill grate and inside of the chimney with an all-natural degreaser/cleaner.
  2. Remove and clean both sides of the grill grates.
    • We recommend NOT using wire brushes, but rather using a cleaning cloth or heavy-duty paper towels.
  3. Dispose of old foil or drip tray liners.
  4. Remove the drip tray and the heat baffle.
  5. Empty the pellets from the hopper.
  6. Vacuum the inside of the grill, the firepot and the hopper thoroughly, making sure you collect as much residual sawdust as possible.
  7. Scrub the inside of the chimney.
    • Again, we recommend not using wire brushes. Instead, use a cleaning cloth or heavy-duty paper towels.
  8. Spray the inside and outside of the grill with the all-natural degreaser/cleaner and allow to soak for several minutes before wiping clean with a paper towel or cleaning cloth.
    • While we recommend our Traeger All Natural Cleaner, you may also use any non-chemical cleaner or a mixture of diluted dish soap, water and vinegar.
  9. Last, reinsert all components, including the heat baffle, drip try, drip tray liners/foil, new bucket liners, and the grill grates, and you are set!

NOTE: Do NOT clean the Thermocouple or RTD unless there is a visual build-up on it that needs to be removed.
