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.

Tips For Starting Out With Traeger Grills

  • Buy a bigger grill than you think you’ll need. Especially if you feed large groups.
  • Join one of the many Traeger Facebook groups! You’ll have access to lots of Traeger fans who have been using these machines for years and years. Their advice is amazing!
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment. Nothing is set in stone. Play a little and have fun with your cooking!
  • BOOKMARK THIS PAGE. All of the new Traeger recipes and articles will appear here as they are published!

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!
