Reno, NV (PRWEB) August 10, 2006
With Father’s Day and Independence Day now fond memories of 2006, sales of most traditional gas and charcoal barbecue grills are starting to subside. However, one popular grill segment continues to buck the seasonality trend with strong sales through the fall and into the holidays -- the wood pellet smoker grill.
“Our sales are strong through the summer months, to be sure,” says Anne Skieller, who directs Internet shipments for The Traeger Store, the leading online retailer for Traeger grills. “But what makes us different is that Traeger grills also are smokers, and the demand for smokers increases throughout the fall months.” Skieller attributes this popularity to seasonal hunting and fishing and the nation’s love of smoked meats and fish.
“In fact, while November and December generally are slow for gas grill sales, these are among our strongest selling months because people love to cook their holiday turkeys, prime ribs and lamb on a Traeger,” Skieller explains. “Traeger grills also are extremely popular holiday gifts.”
Traeger grills retail for $699 to $1,999 and can be found in specialty retail stores across North America and on a number of Internet websites. The benefits of cooking with a Traeger smoker grill, as well as a detailed explanation of how the units work, can be read at The Traeger Store Website, which also is one of the nation’s highest-ranked barbecue-related Internet sites. Besides offering the most comprehensive information on Traeger grills, the Traeger Store offers hundreds of dollars in free accessories with every Traeger grill purchased and free residential shipping.
Traeger grills were invented 20 years ago by Joe Traeger and have been manufactured in Mt. Angel, Ore., by Traeger Pellet Grills, LLC (formerly Traeger Industries, Inc.) ever since. Traeger grills have enjoyed a cult-like following in all 50 states and dozens of countries around the world but are fast coming into their own as a mainstream brand.
Traeger grills utilize pellets made from compressed hardwood sawdust for both heat and the smoke flavor they impart when burnt. Wood pellets are clean-burning and environmentally friendly, as they are made from sawdust that is a byproduct of furniture manufacturing and other industrial wood applications. Traeger wood pellets are available in a wide variety of species, or “flavors,” including hickory, mesquite, apple, cherry and others.
