Buyers guide to Traeger wood fired grills
Traeger wood fired grills have rocketed in popularity in recent years, for several reasons. They are really easy to operate, their WiFire system gives you perfect results every time, they are constructed to a very high standard and you get the authentic smoky BBQ flavour many barbecuers seek. They are one of the easiest grills to operate, just fill the hopper with pellets, turn on, set the required temperature and off you go. Set the programme for the piece of meat or fish you are cooking, insert the temperature probes and when it is almost cooked the grill will send an alert to your smartphone, so you can grill from the comfort of your home without having to keep popping out to check. Traeger wood pellets are sourced from their own forests and Traeger re-plant the forest so the fuel source is environmentally friendly, renewable and sustainable. The pellets come in a variety of flavours to help you add an extra subtle flavour to your cook. The grills can hold a large amount of food so you can cook for a normal family supper or equally for those special occasions when you have family and friends over.

The upper shelf allows you to hold food which is nearly done while cooking a starter on the bottom shelf or to cook smaller cuts while doing the brisket or ribs on the bottom. The grills are capable of cooking a large range of temperatures from ‘low n slow’ pulled pork to a quick burger.
