Traeger Pro 780: Review
The Traeger Pro Series currently ranks at the top of the best-selling grills in the world. Like the Traeger Pro 575, the Traeger Pro 780 also comes with an enhanced controller that uses WiFIRE Technology. This WiFIRE technology allows you to monitor and accordingly adjust your grill anytime, anywhere from the Traeger App on your smartphone. The Traeger Pro stands 55 inches tall, including a smokestack with a 30-inch barrel which gives you roughly 800 square inches of grilling area (large pizzas, turkeys, and six racks of ribs).
In addition, with the brand-new D2 drivetrain, the Pro Series Wi-Fi pellet can now start quicker, heat up faster, and put out better smoke quality that will give you consistent results infused with wood-fired flavor. All Traeger grills are fuelled by 100% natural hardwood pellets, making it the number one choice by default. These hardwood pellets induce an extraordinary wood-fired flavor into everything that goes inside the grill.
Besides, Traeger grills aren’t just meant for grilling, they also allow you to smoke, bake, roast, braise, and barbecue foods from ribs to apple pie. The conventional and straightforward controls on the Pro 780 make wood-fire cooking extremely easy. Just set your grill temperature, and the Traeger Pro will take care of the rest. Reliability is the key, and with each grill, the Traeger Pro 780 will give you consistent results along with the infused wood flavor.
The highlight of this grill is that it is now Alexa enabled, thus making it more intelligent. Alexa’s voice control mechanism allows you to monitor food, temperature, set timers, and accordingly create an alert on your WiFIRE technology with the help of a simple command. The Traeger Pro 780 is large enough to hold up to 50 burgers and seven racks of ribs and provide you with ample cooking space.
