Designed after traditional offset wood smokers, Traeger Pro Series pellet grills and smokers feature a barrel design, side hopper and smoke stack that gives this grill a classic look amd maximizes cooking space, giving you the ability to cook large amounts of food at once. Traeger's first generation Pro Series grills are available in 2 models: the Pro 22 and the Pro 34. For more information on Traeger's newest generation of Pro Series grills, check out our expert review on the Pro 575 and Pro 780.

The Pro Series adds a removable warming rack and easy, clean-out hopper, allowing you to change pellet flavors while cooking. The Pro Series 22 and 34 give you built-in, dual-probe thermometers, allowing you to monitor the temperature of two different meats at once on the grill. Inside the grill, the temperature is constantly monitored by the controller, keeping the set cooking temperature within +/- 15 degrees at all times.

Traeger Pro is offered in blue or bronze colors, and features a great looking logo-stamped lid. The grill has an easy-to-use thermostat with auto-start, that allows you to simply power up the grill, set the dial to your desired temperature and walk away. The blue LED display allows you to easily read and monitor the temperature while cooking. The grills' saw-horse design and all terrain wheels add durability and toughness to grill.

Traeger offers several great grill accessories that will allow you to customize your pellet grill for added versatility. Some of their most popular accessories are the folding front shelves, bottom cart shelves, and cold smoker. Traeger also offers some pretty cool grilling tools like digital thermometers, chicken thrones, grill racks, and pizza kits.

Things To Consider:

While Traeger will definitely get the job done when it comes to cooking, the Pro Series maximum temperature is 450 degrees, while other pellet grill brands can get as high as 700 degrees.
