Hi All,
I am just curious if anyone else has had problems with their hot rod. I have a PRO 22 and the first hot rod gave out after one week bought brand new at my local Ace hardware. The second lasted about 3 months and unfortunately it always seems to happen on the weekend when planning a big cookout. Traeger support has always replaced the item for free as they have a 3 year warranty but I am starting to lose confidence in the grill. I always do the proper shutdown sequence is there something else I need to be doing???

I am having similar issues. My Pro22 is 6 months old and it takes long time to get hot. Never gets to 375, forget about high.

So do you think it is just the Pro22 model? I know it is the budget model but they should not be defective.

Got it all fixed up last night and switched out to Pit Boss pellets on the recommendation of another thread. Worked and tasted much better. Still can't believe Traeger uses Alder and Oak plus flavored soy oil to get apple pellets. Like a bad joke.

Yikes, apple is a nasty recipe
