RENO, NV (PRWEB) May 26, 2006
For the past two decades, a growing number of backyard grill masters and competition barbecue fanatics have discovered the benefits and ease of cooking with barbecue grills that are fired by wood pellets. These innovative smoker grills, manufactured in Oregon by Traeger Pellet Grills, LLC (formerly Traeger Industries, Inc.) have a loyal following in all 50 states and dozens of countries around the world.
Traeger grill owners can boast about their ability to grill, smoke, roast or bake most anything with the greatest of ease and the tastiest of results. A Traeger barbecue’s temperature and smoke output are electronically controlled, taking most of the guesswork out of cooking everything from steaks and racks of ribs to Texas-style brisket and even fresh or frozen pizza.
Additionally, many people are drawn to Traeger smoker grills by the health benefits of the patented, indirect cooking system they utilize. Because of this design, there is a substantial reduction in the type of smoke that contains cancer-causing agents such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), which are produced when fatty juices come in contact with fire. Instead, grease is channeled out of the unit and safely into an external pail via Traeger’s patented E-Z Drain system.
Traeger grills utilize pellets made from 100-percent hardwood 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.
Traeger residential grills retail for $699 to $1999 and can be found in specialty retail and Internet stores. 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, one of the nation’s top barbecue Internet sites. Besides offering the most comprehensive information on Traeger grills, the Traeger Store offers Memorial Day discount packages through May 31. More information on this promotion can be found at the Traeger Store online shopping section.
