Taste the Difference!|
You can literally Taste the Difference with a Traeger wood pellet grill.
They require standard household electric current (120 VAC), which powers the igniter rod, auger motor and draft induction fan. Once you turn the grill on, the igniter rod is activated, the auger begins to feed pellets into the firepot, and the draft induction fan feeds air into the firepot. The igniter rod is a small heating element that gets red hot and then shuts off after two minutes - just long enough to ignite the pellets in the firepot.
The draft induction fan and auger operate continuously, as long as it is turned on. Air is fed to the firepot via several small holes in the cylindrical wall. Directly above the firepot is a heat shield that acts as the primary point of heat diffusion, forcing heat from the centrally located firepot to spread to the sides. A few inches higher is the steel drip tray. Besides catching the drippings from the cook surface (we recommend lining it with foil for easy cleanup), this piece also serves as a secondary point of heat diffusion, channeling the heat into the front and rear of of the cooking chamber. This effective system of heat distribution makes for a grill that cooks evenly enough to grill or smoke the most delicate fish or even bake a large pizza - right on the grill.
As the hot, smoky air circulates around the cooking chamber, it surrounds your food with heat, cooking it evenly on all sides, both top and bottom. This means that Traeger Grills do not need a rotisserie. In most cases, you don't even need to turn food unless you are cooking at a high temperature or want grill marks on both sides of the meat. This even heating means that you achieve perfectly cooked food every time, with no flare-ups, no burnt food and no hassles.
