Louisiana Grills vs. Traeger
As two of the oldest pellet grill brands, Louisiana and Traeger often draw comparisons. Both make high-quality pellet grills that are incredibly versatile and make backyard BBQ a cinch. However there are differences. Louisiana Grills feature precision one-touch PID controllers that allow you to enter the cooking temperature in 5° increments then maintain that temperature within a few degrees in just about any weather. Every Louisiana pellet grill also comes standard with a programmable meat probe that will lower the heat when food is done, as well as a secondary rack that expands your total cooking space. Capable of reaching 600°F, all Louisiana Grills offer a direct cooking option and come with the adjustable Flame Broiler plate, so you can flame-grill steaks and burgers.
Traeger Grills, on the other hand, feature a multi-position controller that maintains +/-15-20°F in ideal conditions and can reach 425°F, but do not offer a direct grilling option. Some Traeger models include a secondary rack and use meat probes. However, while Traeger meat probes allow you to monitor cooking temperatures, they are not programmable.
