Anyone else struggle to get their Traegers up to temp using Traeger brand pellets? I never could get it to 450 degrees for grilling so I finally broke the warranty warning (which is a scare tactic and sales push to buy Traeger pellets) and started using Lumberjack Pellets no problems what so ever. Just curious if this was an isolated problem just with me or if Traeger pellets are not all that great.LONESUMGUSParticipantJuly 5, 2016 at 2:35 pmPost count: 428medicdanoParticipantJuly 5, 2016 at 3:44 pmPost count: 4984Trout23ParticipantJuly 5, 2016 at 4:45 pmPost count: 455
I have a pit boss and used Treager pellets this weekend. They must have been wet or something. My hopper box was the only thing that was smoking for a while. I had to burn through what was left and go back to the pitboss pellets. Ill probably be done using Treager pellets. I was in a pinch and had to buy them this time around.wolflb2ParticipantJuly 6, 2016 at 11:48 amPost count: 351twdenneyParticipantJuly 6, 2016 at 12:26 pmPost count: 764
I have 3 traegers….the first on I have owned for almost 15 years. I have made everything from pizza, pulled pork, ribs, quesadilla, cakes & steaks. I have recently switched to Pitboss pellets from Menards. 40 lb bag half the price. This pellet puts out more smoke flavor for getting more flavor on things like cheese, fish, and summer sausage. I have also come to accept that a traeger will not sear steaks like I like and have went back to a charcoal Jumbo Joe when cooking steaks and burgers.LONESUMGUSParticipantJuly 6, 2016 at 1:34 pmPost count: 428[email protected]July 6, 2016 at 2:50 pmPost count: 20268pheasant1ParticipantJuly 6, 2016 at 2:55 pmPost count: 1502Trout23ParticipantJuly 6, 2016 at 3:05 pmPost count: 455[email protected]July 6, 2016 at 3:16 pmPost count: 20268

Traeger saying you can only run their brand of pellets through there grills or the warranty is void rubbed me the wrong way too! A complete sales push and not the best interests of your customers.twdenneyParticipantJuly 8, 2016 at 12:09 pmPost count: 764
Pizza turns out awesome. I t has that smoky flavor just like you would expect. Crank the traeger to high and place your stone directly on grate. Make dough let it rise 30-40 minutes all the while the grill is getting smoldering hot. Get toppings ready and build pie. Drop that sucker on for probably 10 minutes or less and enjoy!
