Questions & Answers


What is the difference between the bronson20 and the Eastwood 20

The Eastwood 22, is a bit larger and has some cosmetic differences. The Bronson is slightly smaller and a better for compact areas like a balcony or apartment courtyard.

Can you use a extension cord when using this grill

Asked by CC May 7, 2019

Yes, You can use an extension cord with this grill.

What is the max amperage draw, I don't see that in the spec's

Asked by Mrbill May 2, 2019

1 amp for DC, 2 amps for AC, can depend on what country you are in and the Voltage of your outlet.

How is assembly for a novice?

Asked by KT March 23, 2019

Very easy. Most grills can be assembled in 30 mins - 1 hr. We recommend a helper, but you should be able to get it done alone. You can call us at 1800 TRAEGER and we can talk you through anything you are having trouble with.

can I smoke a turkey with this smoker?

Asked by kk November 26, 2018

You can smoke a smallish turkey under 15 pounds in a Trager Bronson 20 with excellent results. Setting to smoke for 2 1/2 to 4 hours, followed by an approximately 3 hour roast at 350 degrees (internal temp of 170 degrees) did the trick for me this Thanksgiving. I had brined the turkey for 24 hours before roasting to help flavor and moisture qualities. At 14.9 lbs, I had to press it down to get inside my Bronson.

Do you accept Affirm ?

Asked by Luco October 16, 2018

Traeger does not accept Affirm at this time.

Can you make jerky ?

Asked by red May 21, 2018

Yes smoke setting lower enough, like 140 -150 degrees.

Can you add a secondary Rack to this grill similar to the rack that comes in the 22 series?

Asked by Capacity March 26, 2018

I don’t believe so, you may be able to create your own

I don't see any heat probe ports?? On other Traeger grills, are there any ports for heat probes?

Asked by BSartini February 5, 2018

You have the cord hang from under the door.

Are they all electric? The Bronson 20 wood fired grill

Asked by samtheman January 22, 2018

Yes my bronson is electric

Love my new traeger
Customer review from logo
My wife purchased the Bronson for me about a month ago. First round was chicken leg quarters and a rack of ribs. They both came out delicious and not overly smoky cook time about 6hrs.The next round was a whole fresh caught 10lb wild piglet. Sorry to say I over cooked it and will definitely retry. Trial and error not the smokers fault. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Even baked cakes

I started out with the Bronson 20 for my first Traeger grill and the rest is history. Love this little guy and don't let the size fool you. It's a grilling machine! I made some of my best baked cakes on this baby! It was my first smoker and it was definitely not my last! It started my passion. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I was in the market for a new grill, after much debate I went with the Traeger Bronson 20. I don’t think I will ever go back to a regular propane or charcoal grill again. I have a family of 6 and initially was worried about the size, don’t be. I added the fold down front tray and also recommend that. In the short period of time I have made tomahawks, tri-tip, beer can chicken, brisket, pulled pork, shrimp, veggies, burgers, dogs, and chicken breast. Traeger’s website provides numerous recipes that make use easy. Go buy one, stop debating it like I did.

Easy to use
Customer review from logo
I am very disappointed. This model does not live up to Traeger hype. In over an hour it never reached set temp. Temp settings can be erratic. Set at 180 and it went up to 251! Have had it neatly a year and ready to give it away. Not sure how they got their reputation. Pit Boss is looking better all the time!

Fantastic Smoker!
Customer review from logo
Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING we cook on this smoker is delicious! The smoker arrived slightly damaged (a little bent-up on one side of the barrel) due to tough handling by the shipper. But that's not Traeger's fault. I registered it through their online registration system. About three week later, I telephoned their customer support people. They shipped a brand-new barrel, which arrived about ten days later. I used the smoker before the replacement part arrived. Everything I cooked was melt-in-your mouth delicious! I've made baby back ribs, been and veggie burgers, hot dogs and sausages, and whole chicken. In addition, I've even brought home Costco's rotisserie chicken to finish-off on this Bronson model--and, yes, that rotisserie chicken came out of the smoker way better. As I write this review, this smoker is out of stock, probably because it's such a great smoker at an awesome price. I can easily prepare three racks of baby back ribs, two whole butterflied chickens, or about a dozen burgers. I really love this smoker and highlymmend it. Snap it up when Traeger has it back in stock.

Great While it Lasted - Follow Up
Customer review from logo
Well... My problems continue... After customer service finally got back to me they were very nice and sent a new hopper and lid. The lid had instructions and hardware. The hopper was a piece of metal in a box. Inside my old hopper is a thermocouple located above the burner pot. This device unscrews from the hopper, but is too large to go through the hopper opening. To remove it, you apparently have to take the hopper apart to reach the circuit board and remove/replace the device. It all went back together, but now the grill won't turn on. I think is unacceptable to ask an ordinary home owner to do board level warrantee repair with no instruction. What do I do now? It's still under warrantee for well over a year, but the support I've gotten has been very poor. What next? You need to repair or replace this smoker. If not, just tell me to go away. Again, I didn't buy an expensive model, but it was a lot of money to me.

Great Taste While it Lasted
Customer review from logo
I bought this for Christmas in 2018 and it was great for the first year. After that, the hinges began to flex. I reached out to Traeger customer service and never received a call back. Their answering system always says there is a multi-hour wait and they will call back. They never did, even to different phone numbers. Now one hinge has broken off and the smoker is unusable. I had a great product for just over a year and now I have decoration for my deck. I can't understand why Traeger would make such a poor quality product. I saved for a long time for this grill and I can't even reach customer service for repair service.

Great entry level grill
Customer review from logo
I won this grill at a Christmas party. 3 years later, I’ve upgraded to the ironwood 650. Here’s what I liked and disliked about the Bronson 20. First off, it does what it’s supposed to do very well and reliably. But that’s not without some minor issues that are only due to this being an entry level Traeger. The hopper capacity, I found myself running the hopper empty on more than one occasion. The grilling space isn’t all that great. I usually grill a bunch of things in the same day. Like a couple racks of ribs and a couple sides. With this grill you can only do maybe 2 racks at the same time. I tried a 14 lbs turkey once and it didn’t fit. But after 3 years, those are really my only gripes. I’ve used it probably 1-2 times a week April-September. It has held up really well, it still works and I haven’t had to replace anything. I only gave it 4 stars because it lacks features, but for what it is, it’s pretty good.
