Just bought the Ironwood 650 and was stoked to try it out and get smoking. Tried the 3-2-1 baby backs. First 3 hours were supposed to be at 180, then 225 the rest of the way. The 650 couldn’t hold 180 at all. Got to 161 and stayed there for the first hour and a half. Never opened the door. I tinkered with the temp setting to see if I could warm it up and then control it from there. It needed 230 just to climb above 170.uc browser shareit appvn Come to find out that at the 230 setting, it holds 230 just fine. Anything below that, even 225, it will hold a temp 20 to 30 degrees less than the setting. I feel like that’s the sweet spot for smoking and on a convenient smoker like the Traeger I’d expect it to at least try to get back to the set temp.
