Ok so are we supposed to flipping the food over? I think I read that you don’t have to but I am having a hard time just leaving the food without flipping... lol. I am currently cooking some chicken thighs and drumsticks.

You shouldn't have to, but I don't think it will hurt to move 'em around. I turn/flip certain things.

Like Primeone says, move em around. All Traegers have hots spots and different sections cook at different temps, even in the high end ones like my Ironwood.

LOL! I am not a flipper unless I'm indoors using a frying pan or grilling outdoors. I mostly always use my Traeger smoker like I use the indoor oven, which does not involve flipping.

I flip my food even though you shouldn’t need to. It seems to be more even but that’s just me.

I rearrange and flip due to the hot spots like GrilMeistet stated.
