Auger is not working . How do I trouble shoot


You may want to try vacuuming the area around the burn chamber or turn the auger to see if it is froze up. Same thing as a pellet furnace.

Traeger grill not smoking


This is a common complaint about Traeger grills. Some people have resolved it with smoke pipes which contain pellets that smolder during the cooking process.

Others use different pellets than Traeger pellets but they void their warranty when they do. For me, Traeger pellets seem to put out enough smoke at the low temperatures I use (less than 200 degrees) but if I get above 200, the smoke goes sway.

When I cook pork shoulders, I try to keep the temperature at 180. In ideal conditions the Traeger will fluctuate between 160 and 200, averaging 180. If I can maintain this low-slow cooking temp-speed, I get a good smoke ring and decent smoke flavor.

If I get above 200, I lose much of the flavor but usually have a smoke ring though not as intense as at the lower temps. There are lots of conversations about this on blogs at the Traeger website and at the Pelletheads website.

Traeger grill get to hot on smoke


If you're cooking when it's hot outside, it's hard to maintain low temperatures. In the heat of summer, I have to tend my grill continually opening and closing the lid to keep the temperature down to my cooking temp of 180. That, of course, lets the smoke escape. If it gets too hot when the temperatures are moderate, i.e. 60s and 70s, the augur may be dumping too many pellets into the fire pot and need realigning. I suggest you contact Traeger customer service at http://www.traegergrills.com and see what they suggest.

Not smoking


Traeger grills just will NOT smoke at temps much above 200 degrees. I have to stand by my grill continually in the summer to keep opening and closing the lid to let the heat out. That also lets the smoke out. I also have turned the grill off and on to try to maintain the temperature at 180 degrees where it smokes best and cooks low and slow. It's less of a problem in the winter months. Then I find myself setting the temperature higher turning it from low to medium and back to maintain the temperature I want.

I'm getting an "Err" message on my digital temperature reading. The grill starts up but then shuts down when the "Err" message comes up.


Remove your grill, inner shield and outer dip plate from the Traeger. Start the Traeger in smoke mode. Observe to see if the blower fan is working. Is the auger turning? Are the pellets dry? Condensation can make the pellets swell and cause plug ups.

Im getting black smoke --like creasote in my Lil Tex--What causes that?


If there is a small amount of black smoke, a little amount of carbon, don't fuss. It's normal. Remember low heat means a lot of smoke, high means quicker cook time, less smoke.

On several occasions,in smoke mode, after several


the smoker does not emit smoke continuously. The pellets are pushed into the firepot at a speed relative to the temp setting. If you listen to it you will hear it go through the heating cycle and see that is a normal condition.
