Love this producr
I have been grilling and smoking meat for years. In most recent years I have solely used natural charcoal (I haven't use gas in over 10 years), but maintaining the right temperature has always been time consuming and difficult. Just got my Trager and I am 4 hours into and 8 hour smoking 2 racks of ribs. It much easier to cook with my Traeger and so far the quality is just as good as when I slaved hour my old smoker for hours. The Traegar was also very easy to assemble. I have read complaints about quality, I haven't had any - worked great right out of the box. I also read about issues with temperature control. It should be noted that this is not a oven or gas grill, so the temperatures will fluctuate a bit - that grilling and smoking.

Best Smoker I ever had
I have owned many smokers over the years. Bought my Lil Tex in 2012. My upgrades were a fold down shelf and an Ortech T100 digital controller. By far the best smoker I have ever owned. People complain about burn outs etc. Then you find out it is almost always operator error. In four years I have never had this problem. I clean mine out ever other smoke session or so and it keeps on making us happy. Thank you Traeger!!!

Best grill Ive owned
I purchased my Traeger a few months ago after deciding never again would I wasted good money on another propane grill. Honestly one of the best investments Ive ever made for my home. My very first cook was a couple of New York strips and while not really knowing what to expect my steaks turned out pretty dang good considering they were a tad bit overdone for what I like. Since then I have perfected my cooking times with the steaks and every time theyre consistent. Steaks are a breeze now no flare ups no crispy edges and always cooked perfectly. Ive never been able to smoke a brisket to see my life its always been undercooked overlooked and either way like chewing a Goodyear. I even tried an electric smoker and still after severalattempts couldnt get it right. So with some hesitation I tried my first brisket two weeks ago on my Traeger and not only was it good it was one of the best Ive ever had. I thought that perhaps it was beginners luck so I did another this past weekend and again it was cooked perfectly and was awesome. Believe me if I can successfully smoke two briskets in a row and get the same great results both times anyone can become a backyard chef! Absolutely a great product. My only regret is that I didnt spend the extra couple hundred and get the big boy.

Nice grill when it works
I have owned grill for less then a year there's no doubt it's a grilling /smoking machine. It has let me down on four occasions since new. Every component has failed but the hot rod some twice. Happy with it when it works. Service team is great so far. Call them don't email! I'm just concerned when the warranty is up I'm Gona need a part time job to buy parts for it or scrap it!

What me grill ?
I bought my Lil' Texas last summer 2015. The first item smoked chicken was perfect. Since then I have had only one failure with many good results. The failure was my seasoning choice not the grill.The ribs are so tender and tasty it is hard to believe I did them. My Treager has made me a master chef in the BBQ arena although I feel I still have much to learn on seasonings & sauses.One of the nicest parts while grilling is sitting back drinking my favourite drink & reading my book. The Treager does the work. Such an easy unit to use.I have added extra grill racks & will probably add the winter blankets. I could be grilling while snug inside the house monitoring the unit on my remote.

5 YEARS AND STILL LOVE IT
I bought my traeger 5 years ago. it has by far exceeded my expectations. It has made me a much better cook. I love to smoke pork shoulders and the ease of doing that is unbelievable. The shoulders always have a beautiful smoke ring and smoke flavor. I like that i put the shoulder on the day before I want to have it fill the hopper and dont revisit it until the next morning to put in my remote thermometer and check the hopper. I am now in the market for a new one just because its starting to look like an old grill. i will probably pass this one on to a family member who doesnt cook as much as i do.

Best Ever
I was skeptical of the high price of these grills/smokers but I will outgrow this Traeger before I have to replace it. The grill is constructed very well and will provide great tasting food for years to come. I love the fact that I can throw on some burgers and simply not worry about flipping the burgers at anytime. I only have to check on them a couple times and it allows me to get other things finished while they cook. Yes grilling burgers will take much longer than a traditional grill but the longer time is worth the wait. The grill will not flare up which will allow the burger to cook perfectly. You can use the grill for anything from hotdogs and hamburgers all the way up to whole chickens and briskets. This grill is pricy but you truly get a great product! You will not be disappointed with this grill!

comes with a learning curve but worth it!!
by understanding its limits, part of the learning curve, you will enjoy this BBQ. I don't smoke my fish in it, some do but I like a cold smoker for that. This is my way of getting that wood smoked brisket or whole chicken. Ribs to die for!! Gas grills are good for steaks but leave it to the traeger for the big cuts. Leaves a smoke ring that will rival any BBQ. I have had mine for 8 years and have had to replace the hot rod three times, the digital thermostat once. I am not complaining at all.

So dissappointed
I was so excited when I bought this traeger grill but I am very disappointed. It has never worked correctly since the beginning and I wish I had spent the money on anything but this Traeger. I have called several times, once talked to a girl for almost an hour, she was supposed to email me and I never heard from her. Then several other calls and of course the same walk through on the grill. They sent me new sensor, that didn't solve the problem. Next they sent me new control and switch and still not working correctly. This is the least reliable grill of any kind I have ever used. I like another reviewer am shocked at the great reviews. And if like they suggested I maybe got a lemon the Company "Traeger" should have stood by their product and replaced the entire grill. Temperature swings, turning off on it's own. Never consistent in temperature and smoke. Just so disappointed. I have gone back to my charcoal weber!

Expert Review

The Skinny:
The original wood-fired pellet grill brand; affordably priced entry-level grill; generous cooking space; convenient grease management system; large-capacity hopper.

Things To Love:
Traeger Elite Series pellet grills and smokers are basic, user-friendly and affordable. These grills feature a traditional offset smoker design that looks great and offers more cooking space than other pellet grills.

The Elite Series is constructed of powder-coated, cold rolled steel and features a bronze colored hood. Under the hood, you will find porcelain coated cooking grates, which are easy to clean and provide a generous amount of cooking space.

The Elite's controller features 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 red LED display allows you to easily read and monitor the grill's temperature while cooking.

Things To Consider:
While Traeger will definitely get the job done when it comes to cooking, their grills maximum temperature is 450 degrees, while other brands can get as high as 700 degrees.

You'll Like This Grill If:
You want an entry level, affordably priced, wood fired pellet grill from Traeger, the biggest name in the pellet grill industry.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

30-Day Returns

Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
