Is it normal to have a very fine layer of ash on everything around the inside and outside of my Traeger? I understand about the fan distributing the heat better, but I'm surprised about the ash factor.

Thanks for your comforting words. I've just been blowing it aside and eating it! :)

I only get a layer of ash mid way into a long cook. For example, I did a brisket Wednesday night. Put it on at 9 PM. Wrapped it in butcher paper at 7 AM next day. It was done at 12:30 and the paper was covered in ash. Just another reason to wrap your brisket. :)

Gonna do chicken skewers tonight, but will vacuum out the 885 first as I don't want my check to taste like ash.

depends on the wind and how much creosote you have coating everything. Need to clean that crap off every now and then. They make a spray.
