    Traeger Reverse Sear Steak

    It was my birthday. I had bought a prime grill trimmed rib steak. I could just fire up my Weber Genesis grill but I decided to see how my new Traeger Timberline smoker did on a reverse sear. For those of you who don’t know what a reverse sear is, you smoke a steak at low temperature and then...

    Traeger Timberline 850 Review

    I’ve had my Timberline Grill for a couple of weeks and will give you my impressions. I’ll start by talking about the construction of the grill. It is made of much heavier guage steel than most home smokers. Then they use double wall construction to lend strength and insulation for steadier...

    Wow, I have not posted in 9 yrs... anyway, I have a 20 yr old Traeger bbq100 deluxe. I have updated the electronics and it still works but has an issue reaching 350f unless the weather is perfect. I use my 15 yr old weber to sear and grill. I was thinking of replacing both with a large...

    Traeger Quality Control - going downhill?

    I'm a newbie here, used to be over on Pelletheads and I've owned a Traeger Texas for 8+ years and upgraded after a house move to a new Pro 34. So far that was a huge mistake! Has Traeger quality gone downhill? Wonder what new owners are experiencing? My new grill takes twice as long to cook...

    Help Me Decide Between PID Controllers

    Hi All, I have a Traeger Pro 34 and have way too many temp fluctuations and occasional flame outs when cooking at 180F. I am strongly considering getting a new PID controller to avoid the temp fluctuations and allow for auto relight if necessary, but can't decide which would be best. Hoping...

    Should I Pull the Trigger on Traeger Deal?

    Just saw this at Home Depot. Traeger Eastwood 34 for $599. If I apply for their credit card I can take off another $100. Yay or nay?

    Smoked Chuck Roast: Q-View

    Good Morning Smoking a chuck roast today. Planning to just slice/chop/pull. Any suggestions? Started with a 2.5 pound choice chuck roast. Seems to have some good marbling. Just a little bit of trimming. I hit it with a solid base layer of Killer Hogs AP Seasoning, and then a light coating...

    Test Bird

    I decided I needed "proof of concept" with the smoke tube & Traeger combo. Picked up a 12lb "nothing special" bird a while back. It's been thawed for at least a few days, so, Sunday was the day. Spatchcock, I didn't brine this one simply to keep things easy. Spice prep was Garlic Lover's...

    Traeger Firebox

    I see a lot of questions about problems with heat generation. Certainly the shutdown cycle is important to ensure it's working; to facilitate 'as advertised' operation next time. I've had my smoker for about 4 mos now. I've had some intermittent issues with start up, but once it's going, it's...

    Hello there! New here but not new to smoking MEAT!

    Hello from the PNW! I've been using a pellet smoker for the past 9-10 years. One of the first things I bought when I got my first job out of college was a Traeger Lil Tex elite. I'm currently using a 2014 MAK Grills 1 star general. I love it but am looking to get something a little bigger...

    Save a Pork Butt

    So had 16 lbs of pork on my Traeger. At midnight it was at 145 degrees, and then I fell asleep and It erred in the middle of the night. Woke at 530 with the pork at 70 degrees. I ran down (screaming and cursing) and wrapped them in foil and got into oven at 275. Anyone have an idea what to...
