The PEAK PRIME model comes with a redesigned digital controller that allows you to control and monitor your grill through our iOS or Android mobile application, dual meat probes and a USB port. With the new grill and pellet view windows you can keep an eye on your food without letting smoke/heat escape and see your pellet supply. Our 13.5 in. peaked lid provides enough space for a stand-up chicken to a dozen racks of ribs. Keep all of your grilling tools handy by hanging them on the utensils hooks of your side convenience tray. All of our grills have a venturi-style firebox that creates a cyclone flame that ensures maximum combustion. They also have Sense-Mate, a thermal sensor that constantly monitors the ambient temperature. When the weather gets cold, the sensor kicks the grill into Turbo Mode, so you don’t have to wait long for the grill to heat up! Other features include Keep Warm Mode and Fan Only Mode with automatic shut-off to blow ash out of the firebox after you finish grilling.

A motor turns the auger which feeds pellets into the firebox. There, a heat rod automatically ignites the pellets and a variable speed fan keeps them burning. The Venturi-style firebox is lined with vertical vents creating a burn pot cyclone of air flow for maximum heat and complete combustion of the pellets with minimal waste. A heat shield creates an even distribution of heat and pure hardwood smoke throughout the grill chamber.
Why Our Customers Choose Green Mountain Grills over Traeger
One of the great things about pellet grills is the ability to set the temperature accurately. Both grills offer incremental temperature control, the Traeger in 25 degree increments, while the GMG has 5 degree increments for more accurate temperature control.
The GMG offers a slightly larger grilling area of 432 square inches, while the Traeger offers 418 square inches. Both grills can have their cooking areas increased by adding an optional upper rack extension.
A few more areas where the GMG scores points over the Traeger are the stainless steel grates that resist rust and corrosion, the peaked lid which offers more vertical cooking space, and the Sense Mate ambient air sensor – this puts the grill in Turbo Mode helping it heat up faster in colder weather.
Where the GMG really shines above the Traeger though is with its fantastic WIFI Smart Control functionality.
Using the free GMG app you can control and monitor grill & food temps, create and set cooking profies, and set timers and receive alerts. We’ve had great feedback from our customers about this functionality. They love the convenience and the fun factor!
We’ve found that the GMG has sturdier, thicker steel on the lids and overall feels more sturdy.
We’ve also noted overall tougher construction on the GMG, if you look under a Traeger you’ll see wires hanging loose whereas GMG parts are encapsulated in steel for longer durability and less rodent trouble.
Other points of note are the burn pot, the GMG has a better design to more evenly heat up and use pellets. Also, the igniter is encapsulated in steel providing a better burn and protecting the igniter for longevity, Traeger simply has it exposed.
The GMG heat shield is made from stainless steel (instead of some form of tin) AND includes a heat diffuser on the underside. The Traeger does not have this and is made from cheap metal instead.
