Not all pellets are Created Equal

The best wood-fired grill on the market demands the best pellets on the market. At Traeger, we created the “gold standard” in pellet production, ensuring your fuel infuses incredible hardwood taste into your food and delivers consistency that you can rely on cook after cook.

 WOOD-FIRED TASTE

ACHIEVING THE BEST TASTE AND FLAVOR FROM YOUR TRAEGER MEANS USING THE BEST HARDWOOD FUEL. 

Flavoring your food with rich, hardwood taste just makes sense. Flavoring it with gas or charcoal? Not so much. Our all-natural hardwood pellets ensure you get only the highest-quality pure hardwood flavor, and nothing else. Whether you’re grilling, smoking, roasting, baking, braising, or barbecuing your food, it will all get infused with amazing wood-fired taste.

 Quality is the name of the game.

Traeger has had the same team leading our pellet mills for over 20 years, creating the perfect process for the highest-quality pellets on the market. 

Our teams go through a strenuous daily process of quality control, leaving no pellet behind so you know you’re getting the best no matter which flavor you choose. It takes top-performing pellets to have a top-performing grill, as well as the ultimate flavor and taste, so Traeger ensures that only the best hardwood is used. This also means implementing regular burn tests at our mills to make sure we’re achieving consistency, and perfect smoke, you can rely on in each bag.

 The "Gold Standard" in Pellet Production

 Milled in the USA

Traeger's pellet mills are all located right here in the U.S.

Having our pellet mills located in the U.S. gives Traeger the ability to oversee the process from raw wood, all the way to bagging, and ensure it meets our strong guidelines for smoke perfection every step of the way. If our pellets don’t meet our standard requirements, they don’t make it into a bag—simple as that.

 PELLET PRODUCTION PROCESS

Traeger pellet mills use a special pelletizing process to create the best pellets on the market. We start with clean, green hardwood, then dry it to the optimal moisture content for smoke creation, using a rotating drum and furnace. The hardwood material is then run through a hammer mill to uniformly grind the sawdust to an optimal size. Once uniform, they’re compressed and run through a rotating die and extruded out into the signature Traeger pellets you know and love. The last step is cooling them in a holding bin before getting bagged and ready to ship to your Traeger dealer, or right to your doorstep.

 SUSTAINABILITY

Traeger is focused on sustainability.

Where possible, we utilize the sawdust from clean, green hardwood that would otherwise go to waste to make our pellets.

 FAQS

Commonly asked questions about our exclusive lineup of wood pellets

To ensure your grill runs at its highest performance, and your food has the purest flavor, we recommend using genuine Traeger Hardwood Pellets. Our pellets meet our strict quality standards and are made of all-natural, virgin hardwood and contain no binders or chemicals - ensuring a clean burn, trusted performance, and unmatched wood-fired flavor. Our pellets are specifically designed to yield the best results on our grills. We cannot guarantee that other wood pellets meet our strict quality standards. The use of other wood pellets, wood chips, firebricks, or heating pellets can damage your grill.

We do not recommend storing your pellets outdoors because moisture negatively affects the pellets, sometimes making them unusable.

Yes, hardwood pellets are the heat source inside the grill and the grill cannot function without them. Not only do they provide heat, but they also provide the wood-fired flavor.

We recommend storing pellets indoors, in an airtight container, to avoid moisture getting into the pellets. Traeger recommends using our Metal Pellet Storage Bucket with Pellet Storage Lid and Filter Kit for optimal results.
