Traeger Grills Guide

If you’re a BBQ & grilling enthusiast, you might have heard of Traeger Grills. Joe Traeger invented the first wood-fired pellet grill in 1986 after an incident in which his gas grill went up in flames. Since then, Traeger has become the #1 brand in wood-fired grills. Known for quality and durability, Traeger grills are designed to stand the test of time. So you're interested in a Traeger Grill, but which one? 

Traeger sells quite a few models, so understanding the differences can be a little confusing. In this buyer’s guide, we’ll cover each grill in the Traeger lineup to help you select the best model for your needs. As a rule of thumb, every Traeger grill will deliver the same great wood-fired flavor. Improvements in insulation, cooking capacity, and comfort features make up the main differences as we move down the Traeger lineup.
