We LOVE our Traeger Grill.

So much so that we have two of them.

(That we bought ourselves, by the way! NOT sponsored or endorsed by Traeger.)

These grills are super easy to use, provide delicious wood-fired flavor, and have become an indispensable part of our family kitchen.

These grills are an investment, but it has been more than worth it for us just in the money we save on take-out.
