5.1.8 Traeger Industries

Traeger makes a line of grills and smokers using the concept of an automatic pellet feed system for fuel. Pellets of hardwood are added to a hopper and a pellet feeder moves the pellets into the firepot where they are burned. The feed mechanism can be adjusted to provide three heat settings.
