HOW DOES A PELLET GRILL WORK?
THE ORIGINAL WOOD PELLET GRILL
Traeger invented the very first wood pellet grill in Mount Angel, Oregon over 30 years ago and is still the best-selling pellet grill on the market. As a leader in the industry, Traeger continues to develop new grill innovation such as WiFIRE® control, allowing users to access their grill on the go right from their smartphone, and Smoke Science technology, ensuring the best-tasting smoke flavor.
HOW IT WORKS
Wood pellet grills use an auger that moves the hardwood pellets from the hopper to the fire pot underneath the grill. The higher the set temperature, the more pellets are dispensed into the auger. Once in the fire pot, a hot rod ignites the pellets creating a fire, then a fan stokes the fire creating convection heat to evenly cook your food in the grill. A drip tray sits over the fire pot, keeping the direct flames off your food while catching food drippings to help prevent flare-ups.
