Hi I would chk. and see if there is blockedge in the tubes that carry the fuel, gas I'm sure. You can run a wire threw all of them very simple, or blow air if equipped to do that. I like the wire more, I have used a coat hanger that was thin, there hard to find now. Just love all the plastic our country is made of now, just like some of the politicans, what a mess !! Good luck, Frankie!! I almost forgot, shut the tank off before cleaning any tubes, thank you !

Traeger has uneven heat on grill, some areas burn others under cook


The Traeger has hot spots like any other grill, especially in the front and back where the grease pan doesn't cover and over the heat box. You have to move food around or put your thicker pieces over the hot spots.

If it's getting really hot, you probably have grease in the bottom that's catching on fire. Be sure to clean it out regularly.

After 10 minutes on smoke, closed the lid and set temperature to 300. The readout says LEr and the grill is cool. Suggestions besides using a gas grill?


Do you get an error messsage that looks like LEr? If a Traeger can't reach 125 for ten consecutive minutes, it will automatically shut down. Try starting at a higher temperature than "Smoke" if it's cold outside.

MY traeger grill will start up and smoke and reach the set temp.but then after a short time it just stops feeding pellets and will not feed anymore pellets untill I turn off and start all over.


Are you sure you're waiting long enough? The way it works is that it shuts the auger on and off for designated times. You have to wait the designated interval (up to 135 seconds of inactivity). You can adjust this on some models as shown here: http://tipsforbbq.com/Definition/Traeger-P-Setting

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 traeger smokes but won't heat up...I have it on high...not smoke.


Have you cleaned the ash out of the firepot? I clean mine with a shop vac after every five or six uses because the ash builds up and "insulates" the fire, keeping air from the fan reaching it so it just smolders and never really gets hot.

I need instructions for a viking gas grill...I have the smoker insert and need to know how to use the grill to smoke a round roast or tenderloin.


In order to use the smoker box, remove the last set of porcelain grids and flavor generator plate on the right hand side of the grill. Set the smoker box in theopening so that the front and rear tabs rest on the grill frame.

Always soak the chips in water prior to putting them into the box. Use the "HIGH" position to start the chips smoking, then reduce the heat to a lower level to prevent them from drying out and flaming. If the wood chips do flame up, add a small amount of water to extinguish the flame. Use
caution when adding water to a hot box to avoid steam burns. This tray may also be filled with water to produce steam.

Whether smoking or steaming, the grill should remain closed as much as possible to maximize the effect. During extended roasting periods, it is normal to add fresh wood chips and water to the box several times. Limit the amount of times the canopy is opened-each peek adds about 15 minutes to the cooking time.

Wait until Smoker Box totally cools before trying to remove it.

Enjoy you roast or tenderloin!

I just bought a second-hand Brinkmann Smoke 'n Grill with recipe book but no operating instructions. Can you help please


Whether it is electric or charcoal it really makes no diff. This is a sweet machine!. Your fire is on bottom your water pan is above that. you meat is at the top. This makes the heat be indirect on the meat. You pour in some liquid smoke into your water pan. Rum your meat good. Low and slow is the theme here. Oh yeah you can set it up to grill away. The heat source pan and grill can all be rearranged but this baby is built to smoke! Low and slow.

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.

Do I need to preheat the oven when cooking in the iven When using as a grill the grill smokes all the time


hi, what you need to do is turn the grill on and leave it on what is happening is all the steam and fat and grease form the cooking you have done in the oven has risen and stuck on the heating element the grill uses, so open your windows and turn the grill onto its highest setting and just leave it after a while the smoke will stop.

You need to do this so that any food you cook using the grill doesnt smell of the smoke thats burning on the grill element.

Dont worry you wont do any harm to it this is a very common problem with combo ovens and grills and the same goes for microwaves with the grill feature so dont worry to much its what happens over time if you dont use the grill much.

So just switch the grill on and leave it it can take upto 20 to 30min to stop smoking but after its burned off all the grease and fat etc it will stop smoking and stop smelling so dont worry everybody who has one goes through this same problem.


let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.

Its best you do this once a week or so to ensure that it dont build up to much as it can really stink the whole place out and if you cook food without burning it all off your food will taste like the smell witch believe me isnt nice, so just leave it all to burn off leave your windows and doors open and after about 20 min you should find the smoke will stop and the smell will go away.

You may find it only takes 5 to 10 min but dont worry no matter how long it takes your not doing any harm your just cleaning the element.

Dont try cleaning it with cleaning products as this can cause harm to the element and could taint any food with the cleaning product you use.

The only real help you can give is that before you turn it on to burn off the grease use a stiff hand brush and brush the element to remove all the dried on loose bits this will then make it quicker to stop smoking.

But other than that just leave it and it will sort itself out.
