Cherry Wood Pellets

Most often used with poultry and pork, apple wood pellets offer a light fruity smoke that helps enhance mild flavoured meats.

A favourite of Texas BBQ, mesquite pellets infuse your meat with a robust and hearty smoke flavour. Perfect for naturally enhancing Chicken, Beef, and Fish.

    What makes Traeger Grills the best grill?



    Pure hardwood is the fuel for Traeger’s signature flavour. Traeger owners and BBQ enthusiasts agree that wood-fired flavour is what they love most about their grill, because it simply tastes better than charcoal or gas. Real wood, real flavour – every time. Taste the wood-fired difference.



    Traeger 6-in-1 versatility allows you to cook hot and fast or low and slow. From baby back ribs to wood-fired pizza, smoky mac & cheese and even homemade apple pie, anything you can cook in your head, you can cook on your Traeger Grill.



    Traeger’s ease of use and simple controls let you focus on what matters: your food, your family, and your friends. Our digitally controlled convection heating system simplifies wood-fired cooking, allowing for easy temperature settings, just like your oven.



    Consistent temperature gives you consistent results, meaning you can craft food rather than tend to the fire. Traeger manages the temperature for you, cutting out a major variable in achieving consistent results you can replicate perfect results again and again.


    The Traeger wood pellet grills use an auger to move wood pellets from the hopper, to the fire pot within the grill. The higher the set temperature, the more pellets dispensed into the auger. Once in the fire pot, a hot rod ignites the pellets, starting a fire. A fan then stokes the flames, creating convection heat, just like an oven, to cook your food in the grill evenly. A drip tray sits over the fire pot, keeping direct flames off your food, while catching drippings to help prevent flare-ups.

    Setting your grill is as easy as setting your oven with Traeger. Our digital controllers ensure that you get consistent temperatures throughout your cook. The new Pro, Ironwood and Timberline series all come equipped with WiFIRE® enabled controllers – giving you the ability to adjust temperatures in 5-degree increments, for pure precision cooking.
