Another wood pellet grill comparison people regularly ask us about is the Silverbac vs. Traeger Grills’ Elite 34. To their credit, Traeger was among the first in large-scale pellet smoker sales. Large scale doesn’t mean better, though, and we believe the Silverbac is far and away a more solid investment than the comparable (in size) Traeger Elite 34. Let’s take a look at this Grilla Grills vs. Traeger Grills comparison.
Temperature controls: Silverbac has digital controls with adjustable setting allows you to change the cooking temperature in 5 degree increments from 180-500 vs. the Traeger pellet grill’s dial control in roughly 25 degree increments. That can make a significant difference in longer cooks.
Customer service: See if you can get the engineering manager at Traeger to answer questions on the phone, especially after hours! Grilla Grills has a great team and being family owned we take customer service very seriously.
Grill grates: 1/4″ Stainless on BOTH Silverbac grates vs. the Elite’s single .170 powder coated steel. This is a big deal in our opinion; one that will begin to surface after cooking.
Warranty: Grilla Grills provides a 4 year warranty vs. 3 year Traeger warranty.
Steel construction: Silverbac is built like a tank, 14GA body and heavy duty 12GA stainless steel lid, which is 20% thicker than Traeger’s Elite materials.
