I’ve never been very good at grilling, which is subject to ridicule in Kansas City! The Traeger Pro Series 22 Grill has become the most important part of our weekend, and has given me the confidence to try new things. I was so excited to cook our standard chicken and green beans on the Traeger, but after realizing how easy and versatile this grill is my husband was quickly making brisket, ribs, beef tender loin, and all cooked flawlessly protected from any flair-ups and deliciously smoked!

Traeger Pro Series 22 Grill Review
Traeger Grill Assembly
I couldn’t wait to open the Traeger Pro Series 22 when it showed up at our house and started plotting how I was going to use it first, but first I’d need the hubby to assemble it for me. Steve said he didn’t want to put it together at night after work, but after seeing my excitement he started. 30 minutes later he told me, “That was way easier than I expected.” He seasoned it that evening and it was ready to go for me the next day!
Traeger Grill Pellets
I’ll admit being a little overwhelmed by where to start or what pellets to use, luckily Traeger does an awesome job of telling you right on their bags what types of wood pair best with different types of meat and veggies!
Traeger Grill Easy Recipes We Tried
Chicken and Green Beans
We started with something that we had kind of mastered on the old grill, Steve’s Whole 30 chicken and green bean recipe. The risk with this on the old grill was flair-ups that would char the chicken. I was so excited to be able to not have to worry about that with the Traeger! I’m not lying when I told you this was the best it has ever tasted. Nothing different but the grill and the flavor and taste was so dramatically improved! So much so we actually ate it all over the long weekend (these are my lunches for the week)!
Steve declared “I’m going to take a shot at a tenderloin.” This was always his favorite growing up, but had always seemed too big a hassle on our old grill. Beef tenderloin is not a cheap cut of meat, so it freaked me out that he was going to “take a shot.” He nailed it, it was so delicious! Using Traeger’s Beef Rub and smoking it with Traeger Mesquite wood chips, everyone loved it!
We’ve used our Traeger grill at least 3 times a week and we’re eating so many new things and so much healthier than we were, in fact the biggest issue is who gets to cook first on Saturday! Maybe we need another grill, do they make a pink one?!?!

This sounds like a great grill that my husband would love. He loves to barbecue. It’s nice to hear assembly was easier than expected.
I’ve seen infomercials on this product and sigh, due to out of my price range. However, the products seems amazing and cooks very well it seems!

The Traeger Pro Series 22 grill is awesome! A friend was showing us theirs the other day. We were amazed by how inexpensive the pellets are vs. charcoal too.
Now that looks like an amazing grill.

very nice grill! I admit I would have been a little intimidated using it at first too, but since the manufacturer explains things so well that is definitely a big plus. Glad you are enjoying it.

I’m with you on not being the best at BBQing. My husband would love a Traeger! He loves to BBQ and I think the idea of using Mesquite wood chips to add flavoe sounds wonderful! Great review!
This grill looks pretty nice. I am wanting to get my husband a grill for Father’s Day.
