The Traeger is forged from commercial-grade stainless steel and boasts a number of high-tech features, including a digital controller that controls ignition, preheat settings and temps, double side-wall insulation, and Wi-Fi connectivity (cleverly dubbed WiFIRE) that can be utilized to monitor food from a smartphone via an app.
