In this article we’ll talk about some of the key parts to consider adding to your Traeger Grill.

V. Traeger Grill Accessories – Insulation Blankets & Covers
Ok, back to business – let’s talk Traeger insulation blankets and covers.
IMPORTANT – Don’t confuse a cover for your Traeger with an insulation blanket – they each have a specific purpose.
A cover will protect your grill from the weather, while the Traeger insulation blanket will help you during cooking.
If you use your Traeger a good bit in colder climates, you may benefit from an insulation blanket. Why would you want a Traeger insulation blanket? Because it will help you to maintain more consistent temperatures no matter the air temperature and using an insulation blanket with your Traeger Grill will stop you from burning through extra pellets in colder weather.
As for the cover – that’s kind of a no brainer, right? Don’t let your grill sit out in the elements and be destroyed – cover it with a Traeger Brand cover.
As with other accessories, Traeger Insulation Blankets and Covers are model specific so get the one that fits YOUR Traeger Grill.
Let’s start with a COVER – there are a LOT of options depending on our grill model and style preference.

Although not absolutely ‘must-have’ items, the following will sure make life easier for you and your Traeger Grill.

If you want to fine tune grilling and smoking times for perfectly done food every time, then use the Pro Controller. It also features an auto shut down cycle that reduces the amount of residual ash left behind in your firebox and grill bottom.
How about a pellet sensor? Never run out of pellets again. The Traeger Pellet Sensor sends notifications when your pellets are running low through the Traeger App. Focus your time on preparing that next legendary meal for your closest family and friends.
