Traeger Renegade Pro Review

 

Traeger’s pellet grills are among the most versatile grill options you can buy. Unlike charcoal grills, gas grills, or ovens, these grills use pellet fuel made from wood.

You can purchase different types of wood pellets to imbue your meat and other dishes with different, subtle flavors.

In addition to grilling, pellet stoves can smoke food at low heat over long periods of time, and they even have the capacity to bake.

The grill is designed with an electronic control system that automates the fuel process. It shifts pellets into the grill’s fire and adjusts the speed to help maintain or change the temperature.

This smart technology allows for more accurate cooking temperature monitoring.

The Traeger Renegade Pro is one of many designs that use this fuel method. How does it compare to other pellet grill offerings?

Is the purchase worth the price? We’ve broken down each aspect of the grill to help you make an informed decision.

Best Pellet Grill for Searing

 

Searing is a type of cooking technique that people use when preparing poultry, fish, or meat.

Though inexperienced grillers often mistake searing for being a similar process to normal grilling, the technique actually involves much higher temperatures during the cooking process.

As these high temperatures cook the meat, a caramelized crust will form. Doing this helps to seal moisture inside the meat rather than letting it escape through evaporation.

Theoretically, a seared steak is much juicier and more full of flavor than a normally grilled one.

Because most pellet grills can be used for grilling, smoking, and searing, they’ve become increasingly popular over the last several years.

While the majority of pellet-based designs are meant to handle searing, not all of them can. Even with grills that are capable of the technique, some manage it better than others.

To get a good sear, the pellet grill model has to be able to give off a minimum of 300 F, and 500 F is an even better target.

You’ll also need to consider the temperature controls, materials used for construction, and size of the overall grill and cooking space.

We’ve put together a list of the grills that will give you the juicy, succulent flavor you’re hoping for.

Weber Smokey Mountain 14.5 Vs 18.5 Vs 22.5 Inch

 

Weber is one of the top manufacturers of smokers and grills. Their Smokey Mountain line is a lineup of multi-level, closed smokehouses that allow smoke to spread evenly around cooking foods and grills.

Each smoker is designed with a large opening so the fire can be refueled through wood chips without letting smoke escape.

You can refuel the smoker as many times as necessary, so it’s easy to use for even the most demanding smoking regimens.

WSMs are easier to use than most other smokers on the market, making them a great investment for beginners. They’re bullet-shaped and fueled by charcoal.

To smoke meat and other food, the smoker maintains a steady temperature for several hours. You can lower or raise the temperature by closing and opening the vents.

WSMs come with sturdy legs and solid construction. There are long-lasting materials including porcelain and chrome coating.

An aluminum heat shield shaped like a bowl is attached to each leg. Even despite the shields, it’s highly recommended that you use the grill on a mat if you’re cooking on a wooden deck.
