Happy Good Friday everyone! Just joined the site after finding it on google. I just upgraded from a Pro 574 to the Ironwood 885 and it’s taking a lot longer than I’m used to to reach temp. Look forward to learning and getting to know everyone!

When I seasoned the grill, I set it to 350 initially. It took maybe 25 minutes to reach it. It would climb a bit then drop about 10 degrees then climb 15 degrees, drop 10, etc. I ended up cranking it 400 to ramp up the auger. Today I set to 275 for brisket and it took about 20 minutes to reach temp. Maybe my Pro was just quicker because of the small barrel.

I would say that’s normal timing for start up, my IW885 takes usually 20 minutes to reach initial temp. If it takes a little longer you probably have a bit is ash buildup in the pot ??
