Father’s Day Traeger Gift List + Bonus Recipe!

There is nothing like food off the smoker. And boy, does my husband know his way around the smoker–from meat all the way to desert. Your husband may be an expert at the grill, or just getting started, but I am going to share some of the best Amazon finds for Father’s Day that will make it a day he surely won’t forget.

Father's Day

First, lets talk about smokers, there are so many options out there when it comes to smokers. I would suggest a pellet smoker, especially for those just getting started. Wood is great, or “stick smokers” as they are called. However, they require a HUGE amount of attention and TLC. Traeger puts out a great smoker of great quality.

Our family has owned 3 of them over the years, only owning so many because we upgraded to a large one. Next, we bought the Traeger Tailgater for traveling. Donny has had so much fun with it. On Amazon, the Traeger Grill Pro Series 575 has wifi for easy tracking of temperature and so much more. With Father’s Day on the horizon, this could be a wonderful gift! Your family will reap the benefits of some of the yummiest food you have ever had. (Just in case you aren’t quite ready to go all in on a smoker, here is a great recipe for slow cooker ribs.)

Pellet Storage

Traeger offers a pellet storage container that helps keep the pellets dry. We have definitely were glad with they came out with this product because every once in a while the elements would get to the pellets.

  • Keeps pellets dry and fresh
  • Stackable design
  • Airtight lid with locking closure
  • 22lb pellet capacity – 1 bag of Traeger pellets
  • Includes 6 pre-labeled and 6 blank flavor stickers

Temperature Probes

One of the best things my husband has purchased is the MEATER probe. I think I got it for him for Father’s Day a couple years ago. The one on the Traeger works well. However, sometimes with a large cook, he wants more than is offered. Donny also mentioned that these probes have a much better range and accuracy than the stock probes.

  • Longer Range: With built-in Bluetooth to WiFi range extension, you can keep tabs on your food from up to 165ft away. And if you prefer to cook without your smart phone, our Stand-Alone Mode has got you covered.
  • Four Probes: Each probe features dual temperature sensors, allowing you to monitor both the internal meat temperature (up to 212°F) and the ambient/external temperature (up to 527°F) simultaneously.
  • Guided Cook System: Our step-by-step system will guide you through the cooking process, ensuring that your food is cooked to perfection every time. You can also set up custom alerts and notifications based on temperature and/or time to keep you on track.
  • Advanced Estimator Algorithm: Take the guesswork out of meal planning with our algorithm, which estimates the ideal cooking and resting times for your food.
  • Convenient Power Source: MEATER Block features a Micro-USB port, which allows you to power it without the need for AA batteries. Please note that the Micro-USB connection does not charge AA batteries, and the Micro-USB cable is not included in the package.
  • Handy Accessories: To help you get started right away, we’ve included four probe clips in the package.

Father’s Day can be an amazing one for your man using this list!
