This Is the Grill Your Dad Wants for Father’s Day, and It’s on Sale Right Now

Pellet grills are the balance between gas and charcoal grills you’ve been searching for. This one, made by the biggest name in pellet grilling, is 25 percent off.


Traeger, the company that invented the wood pellet grill, has made better grills than its Texas Elite model. Earlier this year it unveiled a new series of grill-smokers that connect to Wi-Fi, pre-heat quickly and are fully controllable through smartphones. The past-generation Texas Elite doesn’t do these things, but it still does everything you need it to, and it’s 25 percent off right now.

For those unfamiliar with wood pellet grilling, they work by way of an auger pushing tiny hardwood pellets into flames based on temperature readings from an internal computer. You set the temperature you want to cook at — about 150 to 400 in this case — and it does the fire tending for you. This means you have a grill that is fired by a natural, flavor-imparting fuel that you don’t need to stand next to all day. It’s essentially a hands-off smoker mixed with a capable wood grill.

Today on Amazon, it’s $225 off its regular price, or the lowest price it’s ever been.
