Asked by Smokey June 16, 2020


What cover will fit this grill?

Asked by Anthony June 10, 2020

I didn't buy a cover. I live in a dry region. I would buy the treager fitted cover if I was shopping for one.

What type of plug for the grill

Asked by Gee May 31, 2020

Hey Gee, our grill have a USA Grounded Plug, 120 V.

Do you have to use their brand pellets?

Asked by Candcgrills May 14, 2020

You do not. I have this grill and use both Traeger and QPellets, both working just fine.

Is it wood or gas

Asked by Amybug1985 April 21, 2020

It's wood pellet fired. Preview the types of wood available at your local hardware store. Perhaps it is more expensive that gas but cheaper than charcoal. The temperature control is amazing.

Does this model come with a probe?

My Smoker
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Perfect size and the quality. Everything comes out perfect
by Bigdaddybozo
Love it! Easy to haul around and still cooks a lot of food to be a tailgating version. Most of all you get the same great Traeger taste on the road!
by Huggy30
Overall great product
I love my tailgater size grilled. I use it every weekend for meal prepping. Also smoked a pork butt for 10 hours on it and it was amazing! With the smaller sized hopper you do have to watch how many pellets you are using. It works perfect for my small apartment balcony. It easily feeds four. It’s lightweight and portable, but still feels very durable. Would recommend to anyone looking for a small grill.

The Perfect Camping Smoker I was Looking For
This smoker/grill is exactly what I was looking for. It’s the right size for one person, and the portability is perfect. I can run this off my Goal Zero Yeti 400 Lithium Ion battery and my Boulder 100 solar panels and get more from the sun than the Traeger draws at 250 degrees. Everything I have cooked has been delicious. Ribs, pork roast, salmon, and whole chickens have come out great. Additionally, the digital arc controller works great and the included meat thermometer has been accurate and dependable. I am very happy with this purchase and hope this smoker/grill lasts me for a long time!
Had this for 5 years now, still works like new
I use my Traeger 2 to 3 days a week and every weekend: rain, snow or shine... Even in Sub-Zero temps. I have had only 1 flame-out in those 5 years (1st time used it, didn't let it preheat long enough). I'd buy another if this one ever dies after rebuilding the replaceable parts that wear out a few times.

Bought this grill in 2016 when a lot of people didnt even know what a pellet grill was. I use this grill 5 days a week to cook for four people at work. I have replaced the drip pan once because it was rusted through, replaced the grate because I lost it somehow and the controller because it got wet from rain when I didnt have it covered up and thats it.
Traeger Tailgate Is A NO
My wife purchased this for me for Father's Day in 2018. I was very excited to get it and I followed all instructions carefully when putting together and doing the initial burn-in. It worked great for a couple months then we began to have issues with it. It never really held a low temp, so we always had to put it above 350. After about 4 months the LED display stopped working correctly, then the grill caught fire. I cleaned the grill regularly to ensure that I was following all guidelines and would have a nice grill for a long time. After the LED display stopped working and it caught fire it we stopped using it for some a few months. Went out to turn it on one day and it turned on and fire up just fine, LED still didn't work, but we turned it as high as it would go and continued to use it this way for awhile. I could never get through to Traeger customer support to get parts ordered and eventually just gave up trying to get parts. Now, the LED doesn't work, it doesn't hold temp, and when I went out to fire it up a months back it won't ignite. I have tried yet again to get through to customer support to no avail. Haven't decided if it is worth it to fix or just get rid of it.

The grill was easy to assemble and folds up nicely to to use other places. The instruction were easy to understand how to use the smoker and prepare the food. I have had it for little over a month.

Giant pile of excrement
Got this from a friend broken. Fixed with all genuine Traeger parts and the panel went bad again. Auger got jammed, twisted itself around, wrapped the wires up and broke the mount for the auger. Repeated problems, not that impressive food out of it. Disappointed. Moving to a Weber.

Response from TraegerJun 14, 2021
Hey Jeff, thanks for taking the time to review your Tailgater. We're sorry to hear you've had these problems with your parts. This is not a common experience. Please reach out to our support team at 1-800-TRAEGER so our team can help get you up and Traegering again.
Great little grill
Love this grill for portability. Stows away nicely in our RV storage. Flaw one I find is, the handles are not to be desired. Come on Traeger, you can do better than cheap plastic handles that feel like they will snap any minute. Flaw number 2 is the folding legs are a pain folding and unfolding. Spring assist, easy stow away legs would be nice. Food taste awesome from this grill, love the new controller.
