Why buy a Traeger?

For those who love the ease and simplicity of a gas barbecue but believe you just can’t beat the delicious taste of natural wood smoke, a wood-fired smoker may be the perfect solution. The Traeger grills run off electricity but cook with the heat and smoke from wood pellets, the pellets are fed through the auger into the fire pot where they are burnt for fuel.

Not only does this make the Traeger grills incredibly easy to use – so easy that one of Traeger’s favourite sayings is ‘Set It & Forget It’ – but it also gives you amazing an amazing taste, with over 10 flavours of pellets to choose from. Furthermore, a Traeger offers consistency with a temperature range of ± 5°C from the set temperature. The auger feeds through exactly the amount of pellets needed to maintain the temperature; this allows you to focus less on the temperature of your grill and more on the actual art of grilling, experimenting with smoke flavours, rubs, sauces, and marinades.

The versatility of the Traeger grills makes them the perfect barbecue for everyone, able to grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise, and barbecue – there’s nothing these amazing grills can’t do!

Timberline 850 and 1300

Traeger Timberline 1300The Timberline series takes all these features to the next level. Traeger has incorporated a Downdraft Exhaust® system, wherein the blue smoke enters the grill from the bottom, circling the drum and infusing the food with the wood-smoke flavour. When the smoke is old it falls to the bottom of the drum and exits through the exhaust at the lower back of the grill. This makes room for new blue smoke and ensures that smoke is used effectively. The double-walled stainless steel interior helps the grill maintain its temperature without the need for further fuel, additionally, the gasket around the door helps reduce smoke wastage. These features make the Timberline more efficient and reduce heat-loss making winter grilling easier than ever.

The pellet sensor on the Timberline series can monitor how many pellets are left in your hopper and alert you when you are running low meaning you’ll never find your cook grinding (literally) to a halt because you forgot to check the hopper.

Finally, the adjustable 3-tier grate system features sturdy stainless steel grates that allow for include a dual position smoke/sear bottom grate. This means that the grate can be lowered to be closer to the heat source allowing for meat to be seared off at a higher temperature. The three-tier system expands the cooking area of the barbecue and allows for the most effective use of the cooking space.
