Timberline 1300
I have a first generation Timberline 1300 and love it, however, have had some issues. First, the grease handling. I cook bacon on it and have had several grease fires in the grease bowl. I find the cook temp needs to be at or below 325 to keep this from happening. What I find is the grease tends to back up in the bowl and not drip down to the grease tray. I have looked at the new Timberlines and note there is no grease bowl, the grease chute/slide feeds directly to the tray and fixes the problem. Anybody found a way to modify the older Timberline? Also, it seems to take 45 minutes to an hour to reach 450 to 500. Do the newer models heat faster or is it just the size of the interior that makes the difference?

I would say bot contribute, I have a Gen 2 T1300 and it heats up in about 30 Min, but the fact that it has a larger area than other Traeger's would also contribute to the time to come to temp....
BTW: I insulated my 1300 as per the RemE method on this forum, it has made a difference...
