I also have a Timberline 850 and do not have hot handle issues. I have gotten great response from Traeger when I reach the Utah mother ship, not so much with overseas operators. Sounds like you got some wood skills. The repurposed vintage baseball bat handle sounds quite nice. I would go with that one, even if I didn't have hot handle issues. I have a custom walnut handle on my Egg and love it.

Bought the new Timberline 1300. This is undoubtedly the very best grill I've ever owned and works flawlessly. The only problem I'm having is the lid handle gets extremely hot to touch. Is this normal? Do they make covers for the handle or am I just stuck with using a clumsy oven mit or glove to open the lid when in use?
Just curious here and thanks

Check the mica washers on the handle. They have to be mounted between the handle and the cover plate. Also, one may be damaged and handle makes metal to metal contact where attached

Gilbert Fireplace and BBQ's sells a foam insulated handle - not too expensive and worth every penny.

While I have a Silverton 810, I did notice improvement putting a gasket (lavalock self adhesive) on the lid for my lid handle. Haven't needed a glove and have run the Traeger at 500 degrees a few times now with lid closed and no issue. I don't know if my experience will mean anything for a Timberline 1300 but maybe....
