Did you see a difference in temp?
It will help when winter arrives lol. It does help in the summer

It's difficult to see a difference during the summer however it will save some fuel. It will help more in the winter once it gets cold and windy. That's also the time to put a thermal blanket on it or a welding blanket.

We weren’t having issues with temps so it has held pretty solid. We can also get up to searing temps well above 400 when needed as well
OK, reason i ask is cause at 500 on mine, internal was 450. but new firmware just rolled out and now i'm at 01.01.02 - 06.006 instead of 01.01.01 - 06 004. But still gonna do this anyways, order the seal from amazon last night.

Thank You

I ordered the gasket off amazon. I never really noticed a problem with temp I just wanted to keep smoke from escaping. So far so good I definitely noticed less smoke coming out of the lid.

PS: that reminds me, I need to cook more ring sausage and kraut!

I'll probably do this this weekend on my 885. It seems kind of stupid to put a gasket on just one part of the lid, yet on the Timberline, they do all sides.

Product differentiation perhaps? Still, why bother with just one side?

Any feedback on how the gaskets stood up over the past few months. Is the Lavalock the way to go?

Working great since May. We have grilled at least once a week. Just devoured Skirt Steak Fajitas tonight. Seals well, and closes like a fridge door.

pro 22 . looking to upgrade to an ironwood 885
I did this lava rock gasket seal on my pro 22 and it held smoke great. My thin little lid was warped and it bugged me that smoke with slip out of it.. once the gasket was around it.. only the chimney smoked. Its lasted for about 1.5 year but slowly deteriorating.. so I think its time to do a clean strip and re-seal worth it.

How wide is the strip that is being used?

Planning on ordering some gasket. Can anyone tell me the difference between the black and gray?

This won't help, but I chose black for aesthetics. And it was what I used on my older pro22 and worked well for me.

I installed a felt gasket on my Pro 575 and it made a big difference. Should be a standard feature on every Traeger grill.

I just got a notice email from UPS that the new lid for Ironwood 885 has finally shipped from Traeger. I guess it was on backorder for a month or two. I don't expect it to seal any better than my existing lid, so I have some Lava Lock on hand and will put it on while the new lid is still perfectly clean. I suppose there is a slim chance that the new lid fits better, but not gonna hold my breath on it.
