We are looking at getting a new grill, and are wondering about cleaning the Traeger grates. A huge reason to dump our present grill is that it lacks stainless grates and is a PITA to clean. We therefor looked at the Traeger Timberline, but are having trouble getting one up here; limited dealers/models. So my question is: Is it necessary/useful to get the SS grates on a Traeger, or do the standard grates clean up nicely as is? Thanks for any comments. john

Russ: thanks. btw; do you feel you are "missing anything" with the 22 vs the 575? they spec out pretty similarly, and i am getting skeptical about the D2 controller the more I read. pls advise. thanks. john

The 22 has been rock solid for me but I just upgraded to the Ironwood 650 due to WIFI, insulated body, Super Smoke mode, and the new Auger/control board components. I may be sorry based on some feedback here but I willing to try it out.

I don't regret purchasing my ironwood. I have the issue of 225f setpoint being 185 feedback but a fireware should fix it. My controller is being replaced due to a screen issue. Remember it's new technology and there will be a few glitches bit all in all it's been good so far.

Good luck, you will be happy with the 22. Can’t wait to see some cooks on the new grill.

last night i got a wild idea about having stainless grates. i have several that i use for smoking salmon; from old ovens. if the 22 does not clean well, then i will cut the legs off of a couple of oven grates and slide them on to try. tomorrow we should have this beast running; i am curious about it. cheers. j
