Your Memorial Day weekend barbecue—and every summer cookout thereafter—just got a whole lot cooler, because smart grills are totally a thing now. No, you can't talk to your grill via Alexa (...yet!), but with Traeger's wifi-enabled Pro Series 575 pellet grill, you can control your grill via your phone. Yes, really.
With the Traeger app, and thanks to the brand's WiFIRE technology, you can use your phone to change your grill's temperature, monitor your food's temperature, and even add smoke from anywhere that you have an internet connection. As a bonus, you can also access tons of recipes in the app (there's even one for smoked apple pie, which honestly sounds amazing) and use Traeger's grillguide technology to get step-by-step help to grill your food to perfection.
Alongside the grill's smart features, it's also a lot more than just a grill. Like the rest of Traeger's offerings, you can use it to grill, barbecue, smoke, bake, braise, and roast food to your heart's content. Plus, the wood pellets naturally enhance the flavor of whatever you're cooking. This particular model can also cook up to 24 burgers, 5 rib racks, or 4 whole chickens at once. To say it's not your average grill is a total understatement.
And as sleek as the all-black colorway may be, this grill also comes in bronze if you want a little touch of color. You can also if you need an even bigger option (that one can cook up to 34 burgers at a time, or six rib racks or chickens) for an additional $200.
