What is the biggest problem with a pellet grill smoker? Is it not as quick as a gas or charcoal grill or is the food taste too dry?


I think pellet grill smokers are ideal for some barbeque tasks and not others. What the drawbacks of a pellet grillare will depend on what you are trying to do with it.

I keep getting an error msg. When it finally starts, it shuts off with the Err


Hi Terry,

This may help... ...from Treager's site FAQ

"My Unit Goes Out On Smoke
  1. Open the cooking chamber lid and remove cooking grill, angled drip pan and U-shaped firepot cover. Look and see if there is a large accumulation of pellet ash in and around the firepot. If there is, it will need to be cleaned out. Do this ONLY WHEN THE GRILL IS TOTALLY COLD! Replace U-shaped firepot cover, angled drip pan and cooking grills and resume cooking/smoking process.
  2. If this does not remedy the problem, please contact the Traeger Service Department."
From my personal experience, cleaning out the pellet ash is needed when the smoker will not hold a high temperature regardless of the thermostat setting.

In your case, the fire pot may be packed with pellet ash and pellets from the auger jamming.

Good luck.

My treager heats but on high it will only get up to 150.


Hi, if you haven't already done so, I would recommend you remove the grate and heat plate to clean out the ash from the fire box. Accumulated ash will restrict airflow into the fire box preventing good combustion. While using genuine treager pellets and standard shut-down/cool-down cycle, I have to clean it out periodically.

I turned off my grill yesterday and it kept on smoking. There seems to have been a fire at the base of the pellet bin. How can I fix this fast? I have three events beginning on Saturday, where my...


Whenever you finish using your Traeger it is always best to lift the lid and turn the controller down to the smoke setting and allow the temp to drop for a few minutes. This will also slow down the delivery of fresh pellets into your firepot thus starving the fire of fuel.Once the temp drops below 200 deg F than shut off the controller. If you have any wind blowing remove your Traeger out of the draft of the wind and the fire will go out on its own.

I have a natural gas hookup and my grill takes a long time to heaat up (15 minutes) and max degrees is 350 - 375. I found dust in the connection hose blew ut out. Also took grill apart and cleaned...


Unfortunately, that's the way it does on Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment. The reason being, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Of course, on the plus side, you don't have to get tanks refilled. With that said, the thermometer on the grill may be faulty.

To test this theory, buy an inexpensive oven thermometer (the kind that can be placed on an oven rack) and place inside the grill, when you're preheating it with the lid closed. Once you grill thermometer reaches 350 degrees, open the grill hood and compare it the two temperature readings. If the oven thermometer is reading significantly higher, then you no the grill thermometer is faulty.

Hope this helps you get back up to temperature.

Pellets keep feeding. cant control temp.


Are you trying to grill or smoke? In ether case, once the pellets ignite and the temperature you want has been reached, the switch should be turned to off. That should stop the auger pellet feed.

Also, are you using Traeger Pellets. They are the only one designed for this grill/smoker. If you're using heating pellets for a pellet stove, that also would cause that problem

If you've lost your Owners Manual, here's a link to it in a downloadable and printable pdf format.

Hope this helps. Please let me know.

How to charge an auger on traeger grill


Turn the control on high and wait about three minutes. Shut contol off and restart in about 1 minute, This should have enough pellets in the auger to start before the hot rod shuts off. You can also put a hand full of pellets in the burn pot and usually bu the time these pellets are burned out the others are there. A couple of cycles usually will start them.
