    Ranger manual errors and omissions

    Glad your experience was better than mine. For what it's worth, support at Traeger agreed that the manual needed revision and, ultimately, will be revised. It just was't a high priority for them since revising the manual won't likely help sales. And although you found the manual and...

    Pellets Canadian retailer for Bear Mountain pellets

    Thanks RustyJake. I used the same search terms but my search engine did not produce any results for stores in BC. Unfortunately RCM doesn't sell the maple version of Bear Mountain pellets but I'll keep looking. Cheers

    Hi. Does anyone know where I can purchase Bear Mountain pellets in Canada or online with shipping charges that aren't outrageous? Thanks

    Temperature not controlled by knob

    Sorry the step method didn't work for you. My next recommendation would be to suspect you have a faulty temperature probe. You should be able to get Traeger to send you a replacement if you explain what you've tried. Good luck

    Temperature not controlled by knob

    What I do, which has always worked for me, is to approach the desired temperature by increments. For example, suppose you want a cooking temperature of 250 F. Start by setting the temp to 190F. Once it stabilizes there set it to 220F, and once it stabilizes there set it to 250F. Mine...

    Power Outage

    For a 12 hour cook you may want to look for a power station with at least a 400 watt-hour capacity.

    Power Outage

    Cool. Glad that it's working for you. I put a power meter on my Ranger and measured the draw. If you are interested have a look at my post https://www.traegerforum.com/threads/portable-battery-power-for-the-ranger.2370/post-20456

    New Scout grill, horrid temp management

    You may have better luck with the Ranger which is what I have. On my unit the meat probe is useless (which is a common complaint with other models which is why you should buy a good instant read and an alternate meat probe) but the ambient probe is ok (and just ok). You definitely need to...

    Good mat to protect the concrete

    Search Amazon for Garage Floor Mat and you will find a number of options.

    Power Outage

    Do I understand correctly that you used 16 gauge wire? That gauge is typically used for light duty extension cords that support less than 15 amps! I think you should use at least 12 gauge.

    Best Battery for Trarger

    I agree with Grill Meister. Norco makes great products - I have one of the Norco Boost jump starters and it has worked flawlessly and is extremely well built.

    Best Battery for Trarger

    Not sure if this would work for you but I just ordered the EcoFlow River Power Station for my Traeger Ranger grill. Not cheap by any measure but I'm confident that on a full charge it will provide plenty of pure sine wave AC for any length cook I might be doing in the future. My next purchase...
