ran out of pellets

  1. I am fully aware that this not the point but I was smoking on my traeger for one of the first times and it went through pellets faster than I thought.

    Does anyone know if you can maintain heat in the smoker without any pellets? And if so, does it damage the element?

    No you won't maintain heat.  The only element in it is the Hot Rod which only functions long enough to light the pellets at the start.

    No pellets, no fire, no insulation..........no heat.

    Toss it in the oven....and finish cooking it.
