Questions & Answers


When will these be available to purchase in store? Every store around me is out of stock

Asked by Armando September 6, 2020

Hi Armando, Traeger Ranger Pellet Grill and Smoker in Black is an online exclusive item as there is no listed store SKU. It can be shipped to you directly or if it is eligible, shipped to a Home Depot store: however, it is not available to purchase directly from a Home Depot store. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for shopping Home Depot!

Does this have a 12v DC adaptor or does it only run on 110v AC?

Asked by Awatatah July 17, 2020

Hey there, you'll need to use a power inverter that coverts standard 12Vdc power to 110V/60HZ AC.

The assembly manual (from the Traeger website), page 11, illustrates the use of a phone app to set the “keep warm” feature.

Asked by Newby June 27, 2020

Hey there, our Ranger grills do not have our WiFire technology. If you have any other questions, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-TRAEGER, we're more than happy to help.

What size inverter is required?

Asked by LKM March 15, 2020

You'll need a 400-watt inverter.

What are the dimensions of this grill ?

Asked by DONALD March 31, 2019

The dimensions of the Ranger are listed on the Traeger website.

Great portable smoker.
Been using this for a few months now. It’s great for camping and road trips, very portable. Holds 8lbs of pellets and burns about 1lb hour. I used this camping a lot and power it with a portable solar generator. It pulls about 400W to start and 50W to run. I find you should treat this as an oven more than a smoker. The griddle is great for making breakfast. This requires constant maintenance, Vacuum out dust and wiping off grease. Noticed the interior paint is peeling already when I never even smoked over 350. The timer also isn't accurate as it losses a few seconds every few minute. I would still recommend it.

Another fantastic grill. My third Traeger. They just keep getting better

Lower Temp Variability, Good High Temp Stability
I have a Green Mountain big pellet grill and needed a smaller pellet grill for our RV. It seemed the Traeger Ranger fit the bill. After burn in, we tried some meat on low to get a good smoke. Using a MEATER thermometer in the meat, the measured ambient when set to the lowest temp (165) was way higher on the order of 300+ degrees and all over and pretty variable; the meat showed the higher temp as well in that it started to cook. When we set the point up to 400, it held the temp rock solid. Hopefully this was something that the grill will fix in time as it seasons and spec'd in by Traeger. Its probably pretty hard for such a small grill to maintain temp consistently on low heat tbh. Still a wonder you can pack so much into such a small footprint as the Ranger..
Great for truckers!
I drive over the road and until now I used a little hibachi type charcoal grill. I bought a Tailgater years ago and love it but it’s too big for the truck. I saw the Ranger and knew it was gonna replace hibachi. It fits in the cargo hold and is simple to unload and set up. I’ve had other drivers ask if they could throw their own burgers or hotdogs on it while I’m cooking. Thanks Traeger people! You’re making it easy to avoid unhealthy fast food.

Best Traeger for portability
Perfect size for tailgating and camping. Fits plenty of meat...don’t let the size fool you. Easily fits two full sized chickens or tri-tips. I was able to fit a 8 lb pork butt. Also was able to smoke an 11 lb ham. I keep it in the bed of my truck, ready to roll!

Sear That Perfect Steak!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Sear, sear, sear! Music to my ears. Portable, versatile, compact and definitely brings the heat! If you love steaks as much as we do, you need to get you a Ranger and pair it up with that reverse sear method! Perfect steaks every time!
