Traeger BBQ addition to Entegra Anthem

I removed the small refrigerator from the slide out tray in the storage compartment and installed a Traeger Tailgater pellet BBQ. It fit like a glove!
When I want to BBQ, I open the compartment door, roll out the tray, and turn on
the BBQ. I bought a small electric fan with a spring loaded hanging clip that is used to push smoke away from the storage compartment and motorhome.
The Traeger requires 110 V power and pellets for fuel. It is a great BBQ that is pretty much impossible to burn a piece of meat.

I also have the treager PTG grill, I bought the stand so I set it up every time, taking about 20 minutes. I like what you have done, seems like all the hassle is done. Great job.

I also have the PTG, but do not have a slide out tray to do that. That would be really convenient. Nice job!

I have a Traeger Jr on one of my slide out trays. I removed the legs and installed their tailgator kit which includes a heat blanket to keep the surface below the unit from getting too hot. Works great.

I have the "tailgater" version with the folding legs, I don't know how I lived with one for so long.

I'm not a grill kind of person and I hate to sound like such a downer and maybe shouldn't comment but....

I wonder how effective a fan will be in keeping the smoke out of the basement. More important...what about the affects of heat and smoke on the basement door and painted surfaces around it?

I don't know about the OP's setup, but on my rig the storage tray pulls out far enough that I don't really have any issues with smoke getting into the basement. And it's plenty far enough to keep the heat away from the painted surfaces.

Flying Diver Worried about smoke

The small 6 inch fan has been more than adequate for moving smoke away. With the spring loaded hanging clip, it is easily movable to improve the task.
Also, no problems with heat from the Traeger Tailgater in storage compartment or storage door. I would advise anyone interested to visit with a Traeger dealer
and observe the unit in use to get a better comfort level.

We use a junior elite. I left off the legs and have it sitting in the bed of our toad. Does require me to lift it onto a stand but that is easy enough

I have a Traeger Jr that I store in the basement. Mine has the folding legs so pretty quick set up. I have done all sorts of grilling with it including a brisket that took 6-7 hours. The food is great and the Traeger remote reading thermometer is a great addition. I have one at home too and did last year's Thanksgiving Turkey on it... It was great...no reason I couldn't have done that on the Jr.
I have thought about adding a PTG to my kit for when I don't need a bigger grill...this post gives food for thought (pun intended)

I have the Junior with the tailgating kit. I don't have a sliding tray, so I just take it out to put on my table. I usually end up cooking more on it than what the DW does inside.

I just bought the Tailgater which has the folding legs. I used it twice this weekend, smoked New York strips, and smoked a rack of pork ribs. I have to say I am very impressed with the ease of use and clean up. The end product was outstanding as well.

I use the Junior. With legs off, I set it on my folding table with heat reflector mat underneath. Don't have compartment space.
