Your Traeger doesn't need to hibernate all winter. When the weather dips below freezing, throw on a Thermal Insulation Blanket and get your smoke on. It’s heat resistant and acts as a buffer between the elements and your grill, which reduces the amount of fuel needed to compensate for freezing outdoor temperatures.



Insulation Blankets are a great way to help your grill reduce pellet consumption in colder climates; however, they are not meant to be used year-round.

We recommend only using an Insulation Blanket under the conditions below:

  • The ambient temperature is 30° F (-1°C) or lower
  • Use only when the grill's temperature is 350°F or lower.

Do not use the insulation blanket if you are planning a cook in temperatures above freezing or a cook that requires the grill to be set higher than 350°F, as this could cause damage to the grill and the blanket, and in some cases, fire.


The Traeger Insulation Blanket is custom-designed to fit only specific grills. Since some higher-end grill models are engineered with more insulating technology, those grills do not require extra help to maintain their internal temperature.

The grills below are compatible with Traeger's Insulation Blankets.
