Take your wood-fired cooking skills to the next level with the Pro 780 from Traeger. With more precise temperature control, D2 Direct Drive, and rugged all-terrain wheels and a stronger body, the Pro Series pellet grill can tackle any grilling challenge. The Pro series 780 pellet grill is constructed with a stamped bronze lid, powder coated steel, and boasts 36,000 BTUs of cooking power for the 780 square inches of cooking area. The versatility of this pellet grill allows you to smoke at temperatures as low as 180 degrees and then crank it up to 450 degrees to sear to perfection. The natural airflow inside of the grill allows for convection cooking, so you can bake a pizza right on your grill. This convection cooking also means you do not have to turn your meat, unless cooking with high temperatures or if you want those even grill marks. Tired of babysitting your grill? Try out the WiFIRE controller to change the temperature, set timers and access thousands of Traeger recipes using the Traeger app and your smart phone (available for iOS & Android devices). The WiFIRE controller is also compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa enabled devices, allowing you to control grilling temperatures, monitor internal temperature of food, set timers and create alerts using voice commands. Single meat probes give you accurate temperature readings. With the purchase of this grill you will have access to the Traeger Grill Guide app with the perfect recipe for every occasion. The D2 Direct Drive drivetrain technology makes the Pro 780 more durable, with the DC brushless motor, and also increases the efficiency of the grill with Turbo Temp fast start-up, and the variable speed fan. This grill also has a keep warm mode so you can eat when you are ready to, not when the food is ready. The Pro series also adds a clean out door to the 18 lb capacity hopper, allowing you to quickly change the smoke flavor of the pellets while grilling. Traeger grills feature an auto-start system that is simple and safe to use. When you turn on the grill, the auger begins to feed pellets into the firepot while the draft induction fan feeds air into it. The igniter rod is activated and glows red hot to ignite the pellets in the firepot. These cost-effective wood pellets burn at a rate of only 2 lbs per hour on high heat, 1 lb per hour on medium heat and only 1/2 lb per hour when smoking. This energy efficient grill runs off of a standard 110 volt outlet. The Pro 780 also features storage hooks for extra grill racks, a sawhorse chassis and a lift bar on the side of the barrel, allowing you to easily move the grill around on the patio. The proprietary design and thick legs make the grill more maneuverable while the large, locking caster wheels help the grill roll quietly.

Things We Love:
Traeger, the original pellet grill brand, is a true innovator and the most popular name in the pellet grill industry. Combining rugged durability with top-of-the-line features, Traeger brings refinement and style to the pellet industry. Traeger Pro series grills are built to last and make grilling simple. The Pro 575 and Pro 780, the newest models released in 2019, are packed with new features and added conveniences. Continue reading to discover how the Traeger Pro pellet grill will change the way you think about grilling. For more information on the first generation of Traeger Pro pellet grills, check out our expert review on the Pro 22 and Pro 34.
The brain of the Pro Series is Traeger’s innovative D2 Controller. The D2 is a PID controller – the most precise type of controller for maintaining a desired temperature. The D2 allows the fan to use variable speed; it will speed up or slow down as needed to reach and hold the desired temperature and smoke level. The D2 comes with one temperature probe so you can monitor the internal temperature of your food from the controller interface, or through WiFIRE.
The D2 controller uses Treager’s WiFIRE technology, which allows you to remotely monitor and control temperature, set timers, and shut off your Pro Series grill from your smartphone. The Treager smartphone app also provides access to GrillGuide, which features hundreds of digital recipes available to download directly to your smartphone with WiFIRE. Once you download a recipe, GrillGuide will program the entire cooking cycle from start to finish – changing temperature, smoke, and air circulation automatically as the recipe progresses. The Traeger app connects you to thousands of other users in the Traeger community and you can shop for Traeger accessories and wood pellets from the palm of your hand.
The D2 direct drive takes advantage of a brushless DC motor to achieve higher torque at lower RPM, making the auger more powerful and less likely to clog. Since brushless motors have fewer mechanical/moving parts, the auger’s motor is more resilient. it’ll work harder for longer without requiring maintenance. The brushless motor allows the auger to move the same amount of pellets with more efficiency than earlier models.
The PID controller and brushless DC motor work together to achieve Turbotemp. TurboTemp assists the Pro Series in ignition and reaching desired temperatures faster than ever before. Combining the pill-shaped design of the barrel with the powerful variable speed fan creates a vortex of smoke inside the grill. The smoke rolls around the barrel to coat your food in delicious smoky flavor. This results in outstanding heat retention and even less fuel needed to maintain high temperatures. With increased efficiency, Traeger has reduced the Pro Series pellet burn rate to 2 pounds per hour on high heat, and only ½ pound per hour when smoking. The Traeger Pro Series has a range of 180 degrees – 450 degrees and produces amazingly consistent temperatures from left to right and top to bottom.
The Pro Series comes in 2 sizes, the Pro 575 and the Pro 780, which refers to the total amount of grilling space available between the two cooking grates. The Pro 575 has 575 square inches of total cooking surface, while the Pro 780 has 780 square inches of total cooking surface. Each size is available in 2 colors: rustic bronze or classic black.
Like other Traeger models, The Pro Series’ classic sawhorse design and all-terrain wheels result in excellent durability and maneuverability. The proprietary design and thick legs make it easy to transport the grill while the large, all-terrain wheels help the grill roll quietly and smoothly. The Pro Series has a large hopper capacity, holding up to 18 pounds of Traeger hardwood pellets. It also has a magnetic hopper cleanout door, allowing you to quickly change out flavors of pellets on the fly. Hang BBQ tools or extra grill racks within arm’s reach on the included storage hooks. The Pro Series has an available folding front shelf which can be purchased separately as an accessory.
Traeger offers several useful grilling tools that will give your grill even more cooking versatility. Some of the most popular Traeger accessories are a digital thermometer, chicken throne, and grill racks.
Things To Consider:
The Pro Series offers a leaner selection of grill features than what is found in Traeger’s more advanced collections like the Ironwood or Timberline Series. If extra features like downdraft exhaust, super smoke mode, TRU convection, dual position grill grates, or double side-walled insulation are important to you, then you may want to upgrade to the Traeger Ironwood or Traeger Timberline collection of grills.
Questions & Answers (1)Back to Top
What does pull shape mean? I thought they were round
Was This Helpful?
Hi Steve. "Pill shaped" refers to the oval shape of the main chamber. When looking at it directly from the side, it is slightly longer top to bottom than side to side. You can see this in the images that show the side of the grill. This gives it some extra vertical space.
