    Traeger Customer Service and Timerbline 1300 Purchasing Experience (how does this company stay in business?)

    I purchased my 1300 from BBQ guys in Louisiana, and the shipped it on a pallet. Absolutely zero damage to the box or grill. Perhaps Traeger could save a boatload of expense and customer headache/frustration if they shipped these grills on pallets, instead of just a cardboard box.

    What's for dinner tonight? Dinner ideas?

    I tried that chili..I pretty much like everything that Meat Church puts out, but TBH, that chili doesn’t taste like any “Texas” chili I ever had. We weren’t impressed..

    Yup, that’s exactly what I said in the post above

    Traeger Silverton 620 - Questions

    The power cord that comes out off the Traeger is 18 gauge, so a standard 16 gauge cord will work fine. I use a 14 gauge outdoor lighted cord, but 14 gauge is probably overkill, but it’s what I already had.

    Probes getting a boost?

    An accurate pit probe would also be a giant leap in the right direction.

    Probes getting a boost?

    Even if the Traeger meat probe was accurate, I wouldn’t use it. One probe is never enough for me, and I wouldn’t want to monitor probes from two different apps.

    Probes getting a boost?

    Yeah, that was my thought also. That just maybe Traeger acquired Meater, so that they could develop a solution similar to the Yoder/FireBoard. One can only hope!

    Burnt Ends

    I agree! I believe many of those recipes in the app were developed in the kitchen using a big ol Viking or Wolf commercial oven, and most of the temps don’t reflect what anyone would do on a smoker, let alone a pellet grill. It just appears to me that Traeger was in a hurry to get recipes for...

    Traeger buys wireless thermometer company Meater

    Maybe they do, and maybe Yoder has some kind of exclusive deal with FireBoard.

    Traeger buys wireless thermometer company Meater

    Maybe a FireBoard like solution is what Traeger had in mind, when they acquired Meater. One can only hope..

    Replacement drip tray

    They are talking about a replacement tray, not the piece of foil that goes on top.

    Traeger buys wireless thermometer company Meater

    Yeah, I was thinking about that too. I don’t own a Meater, but I’ve seen pics of the app, and I think it’s pretty bad, when compared to the Thermoworks or FireBoard apps.

    That’s a long slim one..what’s in it

    Probes getting a boost?

    Yes,I agree with that. Many of the Costco grills get returned for just that reason. That said, I don’t believe I’ve ever owned a grill/smoker with an accurate pit probe. However Yoder may just be changing that with FireBoard electronics and probes. I always thought that great electronics...
