The Elite series by Traeger combines the rich, full flavor of wood-fired cooking with modern precision. Featuring high quality stainless steel trim, convenient side tables and enclosed storage space, the Traeger Select Grill is where style meets functionality. This grill is constructed of powder coated steel, and boasts 36,000 BTUs of cooking power. The 589 square inches (31 X 19) of porcelain coated grilling surface produce excellent sear marks, while being easy to clean. The versatility of this pellet grill allows you to smoke at temperatures as low as 180 degrees and then crank it up to 450 degrees to sear to perfection. The Digital Elite controller displays the temperature inside the grill on the bright orange LED panel and is monitored by a resistance temperature detector probe which keeps the preset temperature within 20 degrees. The natural airflow inside of the grill allows for convection cooking, so you can bake a pizza right on your grill and do not have to turn your meat, unless cooking with high temperatures or if you want even grill marks. Traeger grills feature an auto-start system that is simple and safe to use. When you turn on the grill, the auger begins to feed pellets into the firepot while the draft induction fan feeds air into it. The igniter rod is activated and glows red hot for the first four minutes to ignite the pellets in the firepot. These cost-effective pellets burn at a rate of only 2 lbs per hour on high heat, 1 lb per hour on medium heat and only 1/2 lb per hour when smoking.

Expert ReviewBack to Top
The original wood-fired pellet grill brand; dual probe meat thermometers (Pro Series only); fully-enclosed storage cart; large capacity hopper; convenient grease management system; stainless steel shelves.
Things To Love:
Traeger Select pellet grills are user-friendly, affordable and attractive, bringing a classic grill design to a pellet grill. The Select body and hood is made of cold-rolled, powder coated steel, and also features stainless steel shelving and trim. The Select is offered in two series, Pro and Elite.
The hopper is able to hold up to 18 pounds of pellets, which will allow you to grill and smoke longer than you'll probably ever need to. Located on the hopper, is the digital control panel, featuring a bright blue LED display and simple temperature control knob. The auto-start system allows to simply flip the power button to “on”, set the dial to your desired temperature, and walk away.
Utilizing the classic gas grill design and exhaust, this grill tends to spread heat more evenly across the grilling surface than barrel style pellet grills, making for less hot and cold spots. On top of that, the stainless steel trim and stamped Traeger logo, colored hood make this grill one of the best-looking pellet grills on the market.
While the Select Pro and Elite series look like the same grill, the Select Pro offers a few upgrades, and since they're the same price, I really recommend the Pro every time. First, the Select Pro includes a removable warming rack, giving you a much more generous grilling area, with 806 square inches of porcelain coated grilling grates. The Select Pro also features an easy, clean out hopper that allows you to change pellet flavors while cooking. Also, the Select Pro comes with a built-in dual-probe thermometer that allows you to monitor the temperature of two different types of meat at once on the grill. Inside the grill, the temperature is constantly monitored by Traeger's best controller that keeps the set cooking temperature within +/- 15 degrees at all times 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 that trusted Traeger name and like the gas grill styling over the old barrel smoker look.
