What is a Traeger Grill?

A Traeger is a brand of pellet grill that allows you to smoke, grill, and bake on it in a super user-friendly way. It is like smoking, simplified.

Why Traeger?

We bought our Traeger at Costco, but they are available all over the place, including on Amazon. Traegers are easy, have amazing customer service, and have been super consistent and easy to use even for a beginner smoker. Click below to get your own!

What Traeger Recipe Should I Make FIRST?

If a whole chicken isn’t your thing, make this Grilled Buffalo Chicken. You won’t regret it!
