Traeger Wood Pellet Grills

Look for a Victoria Location opening soon


Pat and Peter heard about these grills 4 years ago. In order to develop a comfort level with these unique grills we bought one a little over 3 years ago. Within 3 weeks we had sold our 5 burner propane BBQ as we found the Traeger grill did a better job with any food we cooked. The difference for us was amazing. All our food was tastier and moister than on a propane unit.

These grills use hard wood pellets from Oregon (8 different flavours) and they work as a smoker or grill. The heat settings are digital so you can set for smoke for as long as you want or you can set at various temperatures up tp 450 degrees.

(it takes about 12 minutes to reach 450)

No need for a rotisserie as the heat is evenly distributed around the meat. No need to burn to clean the grill as there are no flare ups or direct flame on your food thus no burnt residue on your grill. Clean up is wipe off the grill, replace the foil underneath and occasionally vacuum a small amount of ash in the base of the unit.

Once we were convinced that the Traeger was as good as claimed we have checked out the support and service of the company that sells them. We have been very impressed with the follow up and commitment to service that we have found.

We have met a number of people who already own a Traeger and they are all delighted to have a local source of the wood pellets and the fabulous sauces, rubs and BBQ accessories. Without exception current users and people who have purchased a Traeger from us are passionate about the results they are achieving.
