VIDEO: Traeger Grill Modifications

Companies often times build products with the mass consumer in mind. They then offer their own, sold-separately accessories at a premium. That’s why “mods” or modifications are increasingly popular, especially among BBQ enthusiasts.

Here’s a list of some comparable parts you’ll need, if you want to trick out your Traeger like Trikester (whew, say that three times fast!):

1. 10in Air Tires or 7in Universal Wheel (see also Traeger Wheel Modification video for step-by-step and more parts/tools needed)

2. Traeger Front-Shelf (step-by-step video here; see also Under Shelf)

3. Cutlery Storage Caddy

4. Large Zip Ties (for securing caddy to leg, or drip bucket to hook)

5. Savannah Stoker (upgraded thermostat)
