Have you ever tried plugging one of those probes directly to the Traeger?Not seen any, but because I had such poor alarm performance in the app I had to shed it as I couldn't trust getting reliable alerts. And that is its primary function.
That's what drove me to the Fireboard unit. Local alerts, texts, and even email alerts. PLUS, they have needle probes, called competition probes. These are perfect!
So, this doesn't help for the WiFire temp, but if you spring for one, you will never look back.View attachment 3334
The FireBoard temp probes use a two conductor Ultra Mini Phone Jack, and the stock Traeger probe is a Stereo Mini Phone Jack so no, I haven't bothered to make an adapter to see if they are compatible.Have you ever tried plugging one of those probes directly to the Traeger?
For the price we paid for a Traeger we should have probes that read accurately.just got my pro 22 and it's way off. Will try offset procedure, but if it doesn't work, I expect traeger to correct or replace.Are there other probes that will work with the Timberline and the wifire?
I would like one without the curved part, more just straight and insert.
I don't disagree, but good luck with that.For the price we paid for a Traeger we should have probes that read accurately. just got my pro 22 and it's way off. Will try offset procedure, but if it doesn't work, I expect Traeger to correct or replace.
I can return the entire grill for refund!I don't disagree, but good luck with that.
That said, for those who really want to use the stock probe, I would get an excellent Instant read thermometer (something everyone should have as a base tool when cooking), like a Thermapen MK4.
Since the Traeger only has a single point calibration, I would NOT calibrate it with the ice bath, but instead with boiling water. Check the temp with the ThermaPen, and the Traeger, note the difference and then adjust the Traeger calibration offset to match the two thermometers.
Hopefully this will give a closer temp in the cooking ranges we use.
Sadly this won't help with the poor WiFire alert system, but hopefully Traeger will improve this over time in the app.
