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.

What Traeger Recipe Should I Make FIRST?

Traeger enthusiasts and Traeger themselves will recommend roasting a whole chicken first, and we do too. You can find our post about that here on the Traeger Grilled Chicken page.

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