- Ironwood 885
Anybody that says that you don't need a lot of smoke to get a good ring and good flavor...is just blowing smoke. Just go to a real BBQ competition...award winning brisket. No BS invisible smoke. Thankfully I still have my 10 year old Traeger. I tried side by side cooks...the old Traeger beats the 885 by far, in Ring presence and flavor....I asked DivaQ about this during one of the classes because I never see a lot of smoke on Traeger's videos. She said the same thing others posted. White smoke is bad and, with the correct circulation, you will not see much but the flavor will be there.
I believe that Chad Ward has said the same thing on one of his videos.
This over priced 885 is going back.
