How to make perfect filet mignon on the Traeger

This is just the overview so you can see what you’re actually getting into here. When you are cooking, you’ll want to use the full recipe at the bottom of the page.



Fire up your grill and pre-heat to 450°F. Or as close to that as you can possibly get.



Season the steaks liberally on all sides with salt and pepper. You can throw some other seasonings on if you want, but salt and pepper are really all this needs.



For best results, use a wireless thermometer to monitor the temps of these steaks. We like the Thermoworks Smoke and also the Meater+.

Cook according to our chart below to your desired temp. We like medium-rare.

ThermoWorks Smoke

For all of your wireless grilling needs, the Smoke is the most reliable wireless thermometer I’ve ever used.

WELL140° 145°



Rest the steaks, tented with foil, for at least 10 minutes before slicing.



Enjoy one of the best steaks of your life!
