USE 'MAKE NOW'

Recipes in the Traeger app include a feature called, MAKE NOW. This feature sends the recipe's timer and temperature instructions to your grill so you can focus on other things and not worry about keeping tabs on your food. It also pins the recipe to your grill's dashboard on the app.

NOTE: When using MAKE NOW, you will not be able to change your grill's timer or temperature from the recipe's steps.

  1. Find the recipe of your choice within the Traeger app.
  2. Turn on your grill.
  3. Tap, MAKE NOW.

  4. Tap, BEGIN COOK.

  5. Let the grill do the work for you!

MAKE NOW PROGRESS BAR

The progress bar displays the recipe's completion status. 

  • The progress is indicated by the number of completed steps, not by time. 

COMPLETING A 'MAKE NOW' RECIPE

Once the recipe finishes, the grill will change the temperature to KEEP WARM. KEEP WARM sets the grill to 165°F/74°C to keep your food at a safe temperature until you are ready to serve your meal. 

STOPPING AN IN-PROGRESS, 'MAKE NOW' COOK

Tapping STOP on a MAKE NOW recipe stops the MAKE NOW feature and puts the grill back to manual mode. You can resume where you left off by tapping 'Start' from the MAKE NOW widget, which is pinned to your grill's dashboard. The cook cycle instructions will resend to your grill.

  1. In the MAKE NOW widget, tap, STOP.

  1. In the MAKE NOW widget, tap the trash can icon.
