Traeger PTG+ Portable Pellet Grill Review

The Traeger PTG+ is Traeger’s version of a portable pellet grill and it lives up to it’s reputation as a great pellet grill. The grill size is smaller than most other portable pellet grills, coming in at  only 12×15 inches, but it’s plenty of grilling space for cooking up about eight burgers, a chicken, or a pork butt. The grill has approximately 173 square inches of grilling space and this grill doubles as a smoker. Do not let its size fool you, this grill is made of durable powder coated steel, and puts out 16,000 BTUs of cooking power. Traeger knows their product is high quality and the PTG+  is warrantied for a period of three years from the date of purchase.

It works off standard 110v electricity and has a digital controller where you adjust the temperature to your desired cooking temperature and it stays consistent at that temperature. With multiple cooking temperatures the Traeger PTG+ pellet grill allows you to smoke at temperatures as low as 180 degrees and grill up to 450 degrees with the turn of the knob. The natural airflow inside of the grill allows for convection cooking, so you can bake a pizza right on your grill and do not have to turn your meat.



Traeger PTG+ Features

Although the Traeger PTG+ Pellet Grill does not have all the bells and whistles of thousand dollar pellet grills there are several important features we will describe so you can make an informed decision if this pellet grill is the right choice for
Multiple Options Digital ControllerTraeger Controller Traeger heard the complaints about their older version controller on the Traeger PTG+ which only had a 3 option knob. Since those days they have installed this new digital controller that has an easy to read digital LCD screen to show the internal temperature and 11 knob adjustments to control your temperature. One thing we don’t like about this model is there is no plug for an internal meat probe to show the cooking temperature inside your meats while smoking. The controller has an option for shut down which will make sure your auger is emptied out while cooling down the pellet grill.





Easy To Clean Grease Management System
