I bought a 14 gauge plug x 10ft. Much more heavy duty than factory supplied and a bit longer.

You read my mind! These are standard Computer/Server power cords. I was digging through all my old computer cables to find a longer one. All I need is a just a couple more feet!!! GRR

I may order one as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

haha. Yeah, Traeger could have spent a few more bucks to include a longer power cord. I have mine hooked up to a nice heavy duty 15ft extension cord.

You’re Welcome! It’s the little things that make a big difference. ?

Although for me, they moved the hopper, which made it closer to the outlet!

Great idea, thanks for posting, I really did not want to resort to an extension cord. MANY thanks!

Thanks RemE. Something chewed through my original cord, and after wracking my brain over this I saw your post. Mine arrived yesterday, now connects directly to the outlet in my garden, no more extension cord needed. I bought some 1" flexible slotted conduit at Ace HW to protect this new cord, we'll see how it goes.
