GrillGrate Sear Station for the Traeger Ironwood 650 & 885

GrillGrate Sear Station for the Traeger Ironwood 650 & 885

The Best Grilling Accessory You’ll Ever Buy for your Traeger Ironwood 650 & 885.

Nobody wants a burnt or dry meal. Flare-ups can quickly ruin any backyard cookout. At GrillGrate, we believe that grilling should be easy, fun, and stress-free – every time. All you need is GrillGrates for your grill.

We call them “sear stations” for a reason; GrillGrates turn pellet smokers into pellet grills. They trap and concentrate heat and conduct it up the rails for great searing while the valleys sizzle juices for added flavor. GrillGrates typically add 100 degrees or more at the grate surface on pellet grills. Every set comes with a GrateTool which is part fork, part spatula that fits between the rails to get under your food and lift it without scraping. Here’s how:

  • Non-stick Hard Anodized Aluminum Interlocking Panels
  • Two-in-One Surface; Rails Side Up for Traditional Grilling & Flat Side for Flat Top Griddling
  • Rust Resistant Material


  • Faster cooking
  • Simpler grilling with better results
  • Reduced flare-ups
  • Versatility
  • Easy to use and clean
  • Light and transportable

Your Grill, But Better. As opposed to traditional grill surfaces that merely just hold the food above the heat source, GrillGrates concentrate heat through the patented raised rail design cooking food faster and more evenly. GrillGrate’s air flow vents and flat side work together to trap grease, prevent charring, and block those pesky flare-ups that tend to engulf and dry out food. When we say better, juicier food every time – we mean it! It is central to the innovative design of this grate. The sizzling-hot valleys vaporize drippings and juices, retaining moisture and enhancing flavor.


  • Fits the Traeger Ironwood 650 & 885
  • Set Includes (3) 16.25″ GrillGrate Panels
  • Assembled Dimensions 16.25” Deep by 15.375” Wide
  • GrillGrates for pellet grills sit on top of the existing surface
  • On pellet grills that have a smokestack, place the GrillGrates on the stack side
  • Includes Grate Tool and User Guide
  • This set sits on top of your existing grill surface.
  • Comes with the GrateTool, Recipe & User Guide, and Safety Card.

Please note: Pellet Grill sear stations do not provide full grill coverage in order to allow ample airflow. In testing, we have found that with too many GrillGrate panels, heat can get trapped. When this happens, the fan in the pellet grill turn off, which ultimately turns off the grill.

    These were a present for my son. We enjoyed some great steaks Sat. night using the grills which he said worked great!!

  3. Matt Schnaider

    I received my grates a few weeks ago and I am very happy with their performance. I really do get nice grill marks with them and no flair ups.
    I’m still, however, learning where to set the temperature because they do get hotter than the temperature set on the controller.

  4. Clinton Stine

    All I can say is after I got these I have been neglecting my Traeger smoker function.

  5. Cole

    This grill adds a nice touch to the traeger. The only downfall is that the traeger has a lip on the back of the stock grates that keeps food from falling off the back edge. This grate sits higher than that lip, allowing food to roll off the back and into the body of the grill. Other than that, works as advertised.

  6. Austin D OBannon

    Very impressed with grill grates. They have turned my pellet smoker into a full BBQ pit. I don’t have space for both a propane and electric smoker, so this is the perfect solution. I have no problem searing my stakes with grill grates. I also love flipping them over and using the flat side for fish/vegetables. Great product guys, keep it up!

  7. jeff ferguson

    I am loving the grill grates. I find that i can smoke my steaks or tri-tips, then crank up the heat and throw on the grates for those perfect grilling marks. Cooked burgers. pork chops and chicken directly, and they come out amazing!! i have referred friends and people within the facebook Traeger groups on how they work..

  8. Sonny

    Expectations were to increase temperature on grates for searing and “hotter” cooks. Temperatures on grill grates were only equal to the temperature of my Traeger grates. Grate temperatures were measured with laser heat gun.
    Brad here- couple things. 1 make sure you are centered in our Ironwood and give it all she’s got to warm up max temps. Laser readings are not very accurate on new GrillGrates the beam can bounce and refract from the shiny metal. Once seasoned the measurement is much more accurate. Best way to judge is how does your steak look? Deep brown sear marks are 450-500F, Dark brown 550+. You should absolutely see and hear the sear and sizzle. Will PM you same message.

  9. Toby Dorsett

    This product has increased the performance of my Traeger Ironwood 885 ten fold. My steaks turn out perfect every time. No more reverse sering. Just turn the grill to 500 degrees heat it up and throw your steaks on the GrillGrate for 6 minutes a side. Done deal. Perfect grill marks. I wish GrillGrate would make a scraper designed like their spatula except with sharp edges so you could scrape out the channels really good when cleanings I bought the double wire brush tool they make but it doesn’t do much..

  10. Al Kennon

    These will take your grilling to the next level! My wife was impressed when I brought steaks in with the grid seared into them…looked great and tasted even better.

  11. Scott Demmy

    I’ve been using both sides of these grates for several weeks and they live up to all the hype. Easy to use, and clean. Very well built, and will probably last longer than my new traeger grill which should say a lot.
