Question about Traeger Industries BBQ070 All-in-One Grill / Smoker
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds like you've got grease in the bottom that's catching on fire. Take the grill apart and clean out the bottom of the barrel. You'll probably need a shop vac to clean out the ash, too.

I had the same thing happen with my Treager.
However when mine back drafted ( the explosion ) the blew the door open so hard it bent it, I had just turned away or I would have taken that blast in the face, from a distance of 3 feet - could have been one of those OUCH moments
When i talked to Mike Treager he said NEVER start your grill with the door closed And that if you are smoking with low heat before you turn the grill off run it on high for 5 minutes to burn up anything left in the ash pot
I do and have never had a problem since and I rarely need to clean it out as the high fire burns 99% of everything in the ash pot

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.

SOURCE: why is smoke coming out
Not sure which Model Traeger Grill/Smoker you have, but they all work pretty much the same way.
The following is a link to the model BBQ055. It should help you solve the problem, which simply may be an incorrect adjustment. If that doesn't help call Technical Service @ 1-800-872-3437.
