    I’ve purchased on Amazon for years, years; this is the first time I’m writing a negative review. I decided to invest in a smoker due to the CV19 time at home and spent the extra money to buy a Traeger … the ‘Cadillac’ of smokers. I have had nothing but issues since it arrived. This tailgater is a newer model. They have not worked out the kins nor trained the support agents on this model. Do not buy this Traeger … the digital controls (unlike the true and tested manual dial) is a disaster. The controls do not work and the manual does not actually have the right instructions. A disaster … something I need to return.Read more

    Piece of junk. After multiple calls to Traeger and then sending parts that still don’t work I’m left with a pile of crap that can’t be returned and parts are on back order. Stay as far away from Traeger as you can. Edit 12/23 Trager sent me a new firebox and the grill works well.Read more

    My kids and I bought this for my husband for Father’s Day. After getting it home and following all the start up instructions the damn thing doesn’t work. Fan won’t blow and the rod doesn’t heat up!! Pitiful!! We spent nearly 500.00 for this and it doesn’t even work!!!Read more

    *Update 2* The replacement Blower Part from traeger arrived in about a week, and I’ve had the opportunity to use it 3 times now. The electronic controls on this model drive me crazy. Every time I tried to get the probe temp to display it started to shut down. Using one center button to control the probe temp display, timer, shutdown, etc is too much when the only difference is a second between activating timer and shutting it down. If you’ve used a pellet grill, you will know what a pita it is when it goes into shutdown mode. If new firmware comes out changing this, I’d like to know and it might allow for a better grilling experience. Also, it does not connect to wifi, the app is only useful as a timer and really should be made more clear about the tailgater. I don’t rate things low usually, if you check my reviews. I’d do more homework and get something else if I was doing this over again. *Update 1* So Amazon prime has made me impatient. I overnighted the replacement fan by purchasing one on here for $17 or so. One day the one coming from Traeger might show up. 10 minutes after fans arrival, the fan was working as designed. Will update and revise my rating, depending upon how long their replacement part takes to get here, but I’m staying with 2* for now. The steak tasted great, but the instructions are seriously lacking. My model (tailgater 20) has a digital interface rather than a knob, so anything I find on the internet is outdated. I kind of just guessed how long and hot to cook it, and turning it off – even that was way more complicated than rotating a dial to shut down. For the record – press the center button for 3 seconds. Pressing for 2 seconds is completely different operation and will not shut it down, and longer than 3 does something else, but it wasn’t clear what. Also, the internal temp wasn’t displayed during shutdown mode as the instruction book said, rather a timer countdown was, so the instructions are wrong. I’ve read a lot before purchase and while I waited for it to show up and really thought I was prepared, so I don’t believe it was me just not doing my research. My research relates to the wrong model, apparently. Hopefully overtime I’ll get how to use it, but for now I can’t recommend it. *original* It wasn’t hard to put together, but when I turned it on, the auger moved, but the convection fan was dead. The support line walked me through some trouble shooting (checking wire connections and such) and after 45 min or so, we determined it needs a replacement fan. I would have thought they tested them before they left the factory, but I guess not. Will update my review if part arrives and fixes it. Not looking promising.Read more

    This tailgate pit works awesome. Reaches high temperature quickly and fits plenty of food for our family while RVing! No longer have to leave pool to make sure dinner isn’t burning while camping. Love the folding legs that allows me to stow in our RV and set pretty much on any flat surfaceRead more

    We have a full size Traeger smoker, so we bought this one for camping. But since the lockdown we haven’t been able to take it on the road yet. We have tried it out though. It’s work great. Heats up quickly and holds the temperature well. Smokes the food good and is easy to use. It is a bit heavy though, so it takes two people to lift it into our truck bed. All in all it’s great little smokerRead more

    I’ve had my tailgater for three months now and it came at the perfect time . Just about anything that can be cooked in an oven cooks in my Tregor, no more heating up the house kitchen . The Tregor heats up fast to what temp I set it to . I’ve cooked pizzas a pot roast after heating up the cast iron pot in the Tregor . Breads veggies meat loafs whole chickens, parts of chickens oh and pork ribs I can’t believe I waited so long to get oneRead more

    Love this grill/smoker. Used so far to make pork ribs and is the best for making smoked salmon. Way better than any smoked salmon in the store.Read more
