I am loving the Traeger Fin and Feather Rub lately! It’s a fantastic rub that’s great for lighter meats like chicken and fish, and Thanksgiving smoked foods, too. Packaged in aluminum tins, Traeger knows how to keep rubs fresh. Definitely consider using this rub for your upcoming holiday meals!
Note: Traeger sends new products to try from time to time, but this is one I have bought on my own, and actually, it might come with some new Traeger Grills if you buy the kit.

How to use Traeger fin and feather rub?
This rub is simple to use.
- Pat your meat or fish dry (with paper towels) to remove any excess juices.
- Brush on olive oil or a little melted butter.
- Sprinkle on Fin & Feather Rub liberally on top.
- Let the seasoned meat rest at least 20 minutes to really help the flavors penetrate the meat. Sometimes I’ll leave the food in the fridge overnight if I have time, to pick up even more flavor.
- After 20 minutes, then you’re good to smoke, grill, or air fry your food.

Meat thermometer recommendations
Every home chef needs a reliable meat thermometer to cook food perfectly.
On Sip Bite Go, you’ll often see me using:
- Meater thermometer – a fancy wireless thermometer that connects to a phone app – gifted to me from a Traeger partnership.
- ThermoPro digital thermometer – which has a wire that connects the thermometer to a display box outside the oven/grill.
It’s like being psychic! The great thing about either of the thermometers above is that I don’t have to take the food out of the oven to know the temperature.
How to use ‘em… What I do is stick the digital thermometer in steak, pork, chicken, whatever… Then put the food in the oven, on the smoker, or grill.
While the meat cooks, it reads the temperature so I know exactly what temp meat is as it’s cooking. Without having to take it out and check. It’s really difficult to overcook food when you know exactly what temp it is inside!
