The apparatus mainly used for grilling, smoking the barbecue. This is featured with automatic startelectronic temperature control etc. Like all pellet grills, Traeger grill has some limitations and lackings. The grill not flaming up, pellets not founding into the fire pit, crack with declining temperature.
All the problem can be resolved by troubleshooting guide. The troubleshooting guide is given below:. The most common problem of Traeger grill is its unusual heat swings. Sometimes it takes a long time to heat up. Depending on outside temperature the grill takes 5 or 10 minutes to heat up. When you use your Traeger for the first time it will take approximately 7 minutes. We all know that a perfectly cooked or smoked food depend on the right heat or temperature.
It is pretty annoying that when the set temperature starts oscillating on your Traeger grill. You might treat as a problem but some oscillation is quite normal. According to Traeger, during your cooking you will experience that temperature oscillates of about 20 degrees.
If you firing up your grill in all seasons then you can expect the temperature to swings beyond 20 degree range. To solve this problem you have to think about the wood pellets you are using. Are they perfect for Traeger pellets or are you storing them correctly and so on.
If the pellets are okay then take a look at the fire pot and other parts to analyze their condition. You need to clean and replace the Traeger. If you see everything is fine but the temperature is still swinging then it could be temperature problem. So it is not a big deal for you in using the Traeger grill. Many users complaints about Traeger for mitigating fire. This problem is almost same like temperature swings.
In the same way you need to clean and replace the fire pot because it is unable to maintain the fire. There need much ash or deterioration inside the fire pot, which makes airflow obstruction and causing air to die. Traeger grill has an induction fan. If you notice any damage in any parts you should replace it away. To have a long lastingclean the grill after every use, clean the ash after two or three sessions and do a complete cleaning at least two or three times a year. If the fan is not running and the fire mitigating problem is not solved then you can choose different pellets to use and store them correctly to conserve their quality.
Because Better quality pellets will ensure that the grill is not burning too much. So, this problem can be solved if you follow this. But many grilling lover persons face this problem that the pellets not moving from the hopper to the fire pot.
In this caseyou need to take out your toolbox and open up some part of the grillespecially the hopper side. Then you have to assemble it and you can use the grill happily.Disclaimer: The folks at Traeger very kindly provided a grill and accessories for this review. As always, the opinions are my own. I love to grill. Love it. When we moved into our new place a short time ago, I decided I wanted to up my grilling game and invest in one of the egg-style porcelain kamado cookers that you tend to hear so much about.
Honestly, I was really happy with it… for a while. Starting the grill and getting it up to temperature can be an hour-long affair.
Keeping the right temperature is a honed skill requiring the a mastery of sliding air vents, using the right lump charcoal, and keeping a constant eye on the needle. The grill can get hot really fast great for searing! The kamado struggle is real. Late last fall, I began to notice a new trend. After I saw my third friend list their kamado on Craigslist, I knew Traeger must be on to something.
Earlier this summer, I decided it was time to make an upgrade to my own grill setup. The Traeger Timberline is a high-end pellet grill that uses real wood to grill and smoke whatever food you can throw its way.
Our Timberline and accessories arrived via freight shipping on a pallet much like you would see at the hardware store. Honestly, I was super intimidated to put the grill together knowing the weight and technology that Traeger packed into this thing, but outside of one instance of two-person lifting to put the legs on it, everything was surprisingly simple to assemble. The instructions were thorough and crystal clear, and all parts are clearly labeled and simple to get into place. From start to finish, it probably took me 45 minutes to assemble, with half of that time dedicated to removing packaging materials and carefully reading the directions.
Once assembled, I had to take a minute to appreciate just how attractive the Timberline is. What Traeger does with the Timberline is to take the pellet grill concept to an entirely new level.
The experience is supercharged through a high-quality, backlit LED display that lets you choose precise temperatures from in 5 degree increments.
Wood pellets are stored in an easy-to-access 24 lb hopper that automatically feeds even the longest smokes for an entire day.
Smoke Adjustments to a Traeger Smoker Grill
Internal temperatures are monitored through a simple meat probe that takes all of the guesswork out of cooking times and food safety. The best feature though? The Timberline, in contrast, gave me my day back.
Outside of stopping by occasionally to spray it with some apple juice, I was able smoke an incredible pork butt while I was out with the family, laying around the house, and even taking a nap.

Since there a more and more of us on here who have purchased or are in the process of purchasing Traeger Timberline Smokers, I figured I could start this thread where you can come and post the issues and fixes you are having in a single thread and not scatter them amongst the other threads.
Here is a response I got from Traeger regarding pellet burn back, smoke coming from the from the pellet hopper and "other issues" being soot and failures to start and auger jams. Thank you for reaching out to us so sorry about the delayed response, We have another update coming out today version However with the update you will need to remove a part from your grill, you will need to remove the collar around the induction fan.
I have attached some pictures so you can see where the item is. From the pictures you can see it is just 4 bolts that hold the fan on, also hold this collar on. So you will need to remove your fan and remove the collar and then reinstall the fan. Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you! Thank you for choosing Traeger! All the best, Ben M". I sent them a thorough email explaining about airflow characteristics and lack of stoking the fire pot correctly with too much fuel in it, thus causing a dirty, sooty, flame.
Their reply this afternoon: Hi David, Thank you for contacting Traeger! I personal thank you so much for providing me with this. Thank you, thank you. Unauthorized use, distribution, review or disclosure is prohibited. If you are not the intended recipient, please notify the sender immediately and destroy all copies of the original message. When the unit approaches its set temperature or runs in Super Smoke mode, it begins cycling the fan on and off.
When the fan goes to off, the soot is coming out of the fire pot when it has not burned enough fuel out to cause it to smolder only. I made a video of it. Your firmware programmer cannot turn the fan to off or so low that it is not stoking the fire pot with that much fuel in it. GMG made this exact same mistake. You an see the flame is rising without any input air or disturbance. Feel free to have your controller programmer s reach out to me directly if they want video or my input.
I worked directly with GMG on the very same issue when they are were attempting to achieve tighter temperature swings with less overshoot. In the end, we solved it and all was well for me and their customer base. Unfortunately, dirty combustion is not good for cooking. Please fix.
Again, mine was delivered with the latest Regards, David With that said, I'll check when I get home to see if I get a new update and I'll remove the collar. Did it make any difference for you or is the update not out yet? I was just coming here to update my thread, so thanks for starting one focused on fixing issues on the Timberline. I only have 2 cooks so far but I don't see any issues with mine so far.
Last night I ran a test removed all the grates, drip pan and deflector to look for smoldering issues I ran several different temps started low and bumped it up than backed it down and back up again no smoldering and the temp followed the what I had set it at except the one time I bumped up the temp from to the temp did not rise but rather dropped below then I switched it to and it ran right up to temp.
Ambient air temperature 72 degrees F without wind. Better quality smoke, and lots more of it.
Exhaust channels allow blue smoke to rise and circulate through the chamber fully before exiting, ensuring your food only receives only the freshest smoke. Adjust the grates to accommodate taller food, like beer can chicken or turkey, and smoke or sear with the dual-position bottom grate.
Double-wall, commercial-grade stainless steel interior insulates and maintains heat for consistent temperature control. Find, customize, or create custom cook cycles, then fire them over and let the Timberline go to work. Height: 48 in. Width: 52 in. Depth: 27 in. Powered by Annex Cloud.

I'm a member of the Texas BBQ Possewhich is a social group started by some Dallas Morning News writers, editors and photographers to find and eat good barbecue. Some are more serious than others, but we really enjoy cooking and sharing photos of our barbecuing successes at home. I've been smoking on a Weber Smokey Mountain, a barrel-shaped charcoal smoker.
I'm to the point where I can turn out pretty good barbecue with it, but a few weeks ago I was asked whether I'd like to review a new pellet smoker from Traeger. I've heard good things about Traeger grills and smokers for years, but I had never tried one.
Last week, Traeger introduced a new line of smokers with upgraded technology. I was sent the Traeger Prowhich is the smallest of the new smokers. Traeger's grills and smokers don't burn charcoal or wood logs. They burn pressed wood pellets made from hardwoods and sawdust. The pellets are fed from a bin into a burn chamber by an auger.
A computer controls the temperature, turning the auger to add more pellets to the smoker to keep the temperature steady. Basically, you load the hopper with pellets, turn on the power, set the cooking temperature, and the Traeger takes care of the rest. As long as the you don't run out of pellets more on this lateryour cook should go completely smoothly.
Traeger Grills began production inand the pellet cooking concept is the same, but today's grills have a lot more technology. New with the Traeger Grills is the D2 direct drive drive-train, which includes a variable speed fan and a one-piece auger with a brushless motor. The grills have a new feature called TurboTemp that can quickly deliver cooking temperatures from to degrees other new models can produce higher temperatures.
The Pro has a wired temperature probe that lets you know when your meat hits its target temperature. The new Traeger grills also have a technology called WiFire, which uses Wi-Fi to allow the user to monitor the grill and control the cook from a smartphone.
You download the free Traeger app and follow the steps to connect your grill to your home's Wi-Fi network. The grill has to be in range of your home's Wi-Fi signal if you want to use WiFire, but you don't need the app or Wi-Fi to cook. From my phone, I could see the current temperature inside the grill, change the grill temperature, monitor the meat temperature and set a timer. The Pro has square inches of cooking space. There is a byinch main grill and a 7-byinch second-tier grill.
Traeger says the Pro can hold 24 burgers, five racks of ribs or four chickens. It's electric, so you'll need an outlet or extension cord that's convenient to your cooking location. If I had to pick one word to describe using the Traeger Proit would be easy. I'm used to my Weber, which takes half a bag of charcoal and 30 minutes to get up to temperature.
With the Traeger, you flip the power switch, dial the temperature you want for the grill, set the desired temperature for the meat probe and press the ignite button. You'll start seeing smoke in less than five minutes. Put the meat on the grill, insert the probe and close the lid. I did a test fire on Friday night, starting the grill and running it at a medium temperature and a high temperature for about an hour.
For the test fire, I filled the hopper a little less than halfway. It can hold a whole bag of pellets, which is 20 pounds.
