    So disappointed ....

    Your temps probably are way off. It sucks, but it is what it is. There are better pellets available than the Traeger brand at lower prices and they’ll have Oak. I use Bear Mountain

    I’m not trying to argue, just trying to help the OP out. You have your likes and there fine but there are advantages to having a wifi thermometer and controller whether you find them necessary or not.

    “Need” is an interesting word. He doesn’t “need” a smoker at all, so definitely doesn’t “need” “Need” is an interesting word. We don’t “need” a lot of things we desire or that make things easier. IMO though wifi provides you a lot more freedoms, especially in a long cook, and is worth the...

    Hot Lid Handle
