Amazing flavour Simple to use
Well built bit of kit... Done everything from sausages, fish to Full 7kg briskets and plenty of smoked veggies after first couple of goes following instructions and you tube videos I started to get a feel for it now and its easy to produce amazing food ....... does require a lot of cleaning to keeping in good working order and it’s a low a slow cooking style so don’t expect just to slap snags on you need to give it time, But its pretty stress free cooking considering the quality of food it produces and the amount of things you can do with it are amazing also treager app is awesome for recipes.
Purchased in January 2019 at Barbeques Galore.
Make cheap meat taste great
This pellet feeder is great for all occasions, you can do awesome Brisket or just cook up some cheap sausages. With a great range of timber flavours and an easy operation, this is a easy to use to just make meat taste even better. I use it three to four times a week as just a wood fired BBQ. Recommend to all food lovers.
Fantastic cooking - built to last
The first thing you notice about the Traeger grills is the robustness of them. These are rock-solid, robust bbqs. There is nothing fancy about the design, it looks simple and is simple to use but underlying that must be some pretty good engineering. This is a low'n'slow bbq so you must like smoke-cooked foods. I had only used bbq grills before using this and my first efforts were not all that great but persistence certainly paid off. My last couple of attempts have been great now that I understand the process better. I found, after talkin...g to someone who knows a lot more than me, that I needed to cook at a slightly higher temperature than in some of the literature and it has made a world of difference. If you are just getting into this type of cooking then these grills are a very user-friendly way to do so as all you need to do is set them up and go. They do not require the attention that some of the more advanced ones need so are great for 'lazy'/busy cooks. We don't use it all the time as we still use the more traditional grill type of bbq however I wouldn't be without it now.

The king of all BBQs
Hands down the best bbq I have ever owned. First, if you dont know what a pellet grill then looks it up on youtube. The concept of a pellet grill is not new, but the way Traeger has set it up is pure genius. For the first time I can smoke a whole 20 kg lamb or 8 racks of beef ribs in one go and I don't have to babysit the fire the whole day. It is so simple that even an idiot can operate it. I have only had it a few weeks and I already love everything about it. The grease tray is the best part. Line it with alum foil and all the grease d...rips to a bucket sitting outiside the bbq. Mind you the price is a little high, not as expensive as a kamado ceramic grill but you could get the whole weber bbq series and still have change left over for the price of this unit. The pellets will run you back $29 for 9kg bag and last between 3 - 10 cooks. But if you want a smoke with all the bells and whistles but dont want to have to live the caveman experience everytime you want to smoke some meat, this is the bbq for you. Plug it in, set the temperate, fill the pellets and check back when your timer is ready. Comes with 2 temp probes. I got it as a package with a front folding shelfs (very useful), full cover and chicken throne for $1900 from the only authorised dealer in Australia
Questions & Answers
what can breakdown on a Traeger Pellet Grill? or go wrong with them ??
looking at buying a second hand unit v a new one
It has mechanical parts and a heating element and electric fan so eventually you would expect to do some maintenance on it but i havnt had any issues with mine and its coming up 18 months.
I believe that they are now made in China, James, so I guess that anything could go wrong.
