Traeger Pro 780 Review
Wood Pellet Grill
New for 2019

BBQ Concepts is the Las Vegas expert on outdoor kitchens, barbecue grills, and smokers. We are excited to review some of the details about the new Traeger Pro 780 Wood Pellet Grill.

BIG FLAVOR – Traeger Pro 780 Review

The Traeger Pro 780 has a variable speed fan and auger provide the optimal level of smoke for the best flavor. Equipped with TurboTemp, this wood pellet grill starts hotter and faster and maintains more consistent cooking temperatures for optimal results. The direct drive fan and variable speed auger is powered by the industry’s first brushless motor so that it will last for many years.

Traeger “Set it and forget it” Cooking Technology

Starting with the all new D2 cooking system, things get cooking with the Hopper. The hopper is the box on the side of the Traeger where seasoned wood pellets are poured to provide the heat and smoke flavor. Simply choose your pellet flavor and pour them into the hopper. The controls on the front of the hopper are easy to use to get your grill cooking. Turn on the grill, set your temperature, and the seasoned wood pellets travel along our reliable Auger drive to the Fire Pot. The Fire Pot is where the heat meets the wood fire pellets and generates the heat and smoke for outstanding barbecue flavor. Our auto-ignition starts the Hot Rod, which ignites the pellets to create the fire. The variable speed fan stokes the fire while also circulating the smoke for consistent cooking.

Traeger WiFIRE Technology

Traeger’s WiFIRE technology keeps you informed of your cooking process while the heat and smoke work their way into your meal. WiFIRE technology utilizes an application for your smartphone so that you can monitor every step of the process. No need to keep checking your smoker, Traeger’s WiFIRE app will keep you updated!

Traeger Pro 780 Review

Traeger has long been a trusted name in outdoor barbecue wood pellet grills. The new Pro 780 model from Traeger combines the best of Traeger’s engineering and their newest technology to deliver excellence in your outdoor cooking adventures. With the all new D2 controller, WiFIRE technology, and Fire Pot, your barbecue never tasted so good.

Short Rib Chili by Daniel Seidman

  • Prep time15 mins
  • Cook time4 hrs
  • Serves4 – 6
  • HardwoodMaple

Flavor runs deep in this smokin’ chili. Savory short ribs are complemented with rich, aromatic spices, spicy chiles, a tasty brew, and stirred into a red hot bowl of chili deliciousness. You haven’t tasted chili like this.


  • 4 lbs beef short ribs, boneless
  • 2 whole dried Ancho chilies, seeds and stem removed
  • 2 whole dried Guajillo chilies, seeds and stem removed
  • 2 whole dried Arbol chilies, seeds and stem removed
  • 2 chipotles in adobo, plus 2 tsp sauce from can
  • 1 large Spanish onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • 1.5 quarts chicken or beef stock
  • 1 bottle beer
  • 1 tsp Mexican oregano
  • 1 tsp coriander seed, toasted and crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin seed, toasted and crushed
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, plus more as needed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


When ready to cook start the Traeger grill on smoke with the lid open until fire is established (4-5 minutes). Set the temperature to 225 degrees F and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.

On stovetop, heat a skillet over medium heat and add the dried chilies. Toast in dry pan, tossing occasionally until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add a cup of the stock to the pan, it (should boil instantly) and then turn off the heat.

Transfer the chilies and stock to the jar of a blender along with the adobo chilies and their sauce. Close lid and allow the chiles to steam while you move on to the next steps.

Generously season the short ribs with salt and pepper. On stovetop, heat vegetable oil in large Dutch oven on high heat until very hot.

Sear the ribs on all sides until deeply browned (about 4 minutes per side). Do this in batches as to not over crowd the pan.

Once seared, remove ribs to board and cut into bite sized cubes. Cutting the ribs after searing results in less moisture loss allowing for a deeper sear and more tender meat. Set the meat aside for now.

Now would be a good time to blend the chilies with the stock. Blend on high until smooth and set aside for now. Lower heat to medium, and if necessary, add more oil to pan.

Sauté the onions for 5-7 minutes until softened, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, chopped jalapenos, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, oregano, cumin and coriander and continue to stir for about a minute until the spices start to stick to the bottom of the pot.

Pour in beer and bring to a boil, scraping the bottom of the pan. Allow the beer to reduce by half and then stir in the blended chilies and stock.

Add the cut up short ribs back to the pot. Pour in stock until the meat is just barely covered. You may need to adjust the amount of stock used depending on the size of your Dutch oven.

Bring to a boil, and then carefully transfer the Dutch oven to the Traeger. Cook chili uncovered on grill for about 3 hours until the meat is extremely tender.

Stir in 4 or 5 torn up corn tortillas to help thicken the chili if desired. Serve with cilantro, chopped onion, shredded cheese, and lime. Enjoy!
