Traeger's tech enabled grills heat up for Labor Day

Techstination feature for Monday, August 26, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     With Labor Day weekend approach…thoughts again turn to the outdoor grill.   We’ve had some hands on experience with the latest technology introduced into some wood pellet grill models from Traeger…the originator of the category.   Traeger calls it WiFire….and it gives you control of the grill from anywhere.   Because some of the best mouthwatering wood pellet grill recipes take hours of slow cooking….that remote ability is very useful.    Director of Marketing Chad Ward…

“They can put that brisket on, monitor the cook from their phone and really control everything about the cook.  If they want to move the temperature up or down they can.  They can take a look at what the temperature of the meat is real time.”

Not only does Traeger’s WiFire technology impress…so does the company’s customer service…should you ever need it.   And what comes off the grill…impresses too.
