Silverton 620
Don’t see a specific thread for Century grills (only Silverton). And I suppose Costco’s Century grills are similar to the Ironwood 885? Besides all the negative post here and on Facebooks Traeger sites on the controller box and temp probe being far off how is the Century 885? With a brand new Silverton 620 on the way from Traeger direct, to replace my 2 week old 620 (see my post on the thread Traeger Problems, Issues, Help) I am going to return the 620 to Costco for the Century 885. I love the 620. Sure there is the meat temp probe issue not being correct, but that can be calibrated. There is a small design flaw with the 620 grills. And also with the Silverton 810’s. Again see my post over in Problems/Issues/Help. At least I think it could potentially be a fire/safety issue in the future. I could easily fix it by 2 screws or a metal angled piece covering the gap. But when I started cooking on the 620 grill I am thinking I need a larger grill. So this Tuesday when my 620 replacement arrives (still in the box), before I inbox it and assemble it I am going to take it back to Costco and exchange it for the larger Century 885. So I’m asking any thoughts on the 885? Whether the Ironwood or Century? Are they both identical?

I have an IronWood 885 and it's definitelly a big beast. I don't have experience with Century. I do like the IW885. It got all the space that I need and have cooked 2 briskets, 2 sitting chickens, 3 ribs, etc at a time with spenty of space for water tray. BTW please notice that left side then to be a bit hotter that the right side. It's mostly noticeable at higher temperatures.
