I saw this at Costco last week as well. From my experience with Costco is they typically sell older versions of items, that's why they typically have cheaper prices. So it may be a different motor, or control or something.

I agree, it seems like they buy out large quantities of last years' models. Nothing wrong with that and they are good deals.

Well, if it helps I like the looks of your 575 much better. It would not surprise me if rust would become an issue on the Silverton cabinet and that front shelf looks useless given its narrow depth. How did you learn it will reach 500f?

Not to bash the Costco offering, I firmly believe the 575 is a better cooker.

I don’t believe the silverton has wifire capabilities and it does not have the new d2 controller/auger setup so I would say the 575 is a better product but I had an awful experience with it and upgraded to an ironwood

It looks like this NEW Silverton 620 does indeed have WiFire, D2 direct drive etc. Includes cover. I would assume very similar in functionality to the 575. Seems like a good deal, although price is the same as the 575, not $200 less as far as I can tell.

If it can hit 500 degrees, it must be the same controller used in the Ironwood series?

I see it listed on Costco's website for $799. Is it cheaper in store?

I didn’t see it in the store but I doubt it would be any cheaper until maybe at a road show sale this summer. The 500* was mentioned in the comments section by an owner but it uses the same D2 controller as on my 575. It doesn’t have the smoke feature lke on the Ironwood. As previously mentioned is also comes with a weather cover. My 575 came to just over $1,000 from Ace hardware which includes the cover purchased separately. I’ll have to buy the sorely missed foldable front shelf which IMO should be included with all models. I also noticed there is no chimney vent so it must be downdraft like the Ironwood and Timberline. By all indications it doesn’t look like old inventory.

On Edit: I took a look at the Silverton yesterday at Costco. The oven door seems thin and light weight but otherwise appears to be a great deal. I do like the cabinet storage and the shelves seem to be strong even though the front shelf is shallow. Better shallow than nothing at all.

I just saw this model with WiFi at Costco today their price was $699 and we have no sales tax. Looks like a great buy.

I've been eyeing this as an upgrade for me. I was a first adapter to Traeger and with smoking with my purchase of a Renegade Pro Elite and loved everything about my little Traeger. I found it at Costco and feel that its an excellent deal.

The only Costco Exclusive that I can find listed on Traeger's website was the Century 22/34 Pellet Grill. However, calling Traeger to inquire about the Silverton 620 proved to me that its a genuine Traeger and I was told that it is exclusively built for Costco and presented during their roadshows.

I had a chat with the Costco rep about the Silverton, he was really adamant that it was the best Traeger model there is BUT he also owns an Ironwood 885 so I dont know if I would believe him... I do however like the multiple layers of insulation. Built like a little tank!

Wow, $1000.00 for a Pro575?!?! Did that include far off delivery, tax, and assembly? I see them every where for no more than $799 plus tax. The Costco one is $699 in the store, $799 on website.

Pro 575 $799 (at times I see Traeger discount for $699)
Traeger front shelf $59.99 (this shelf give far more room than the one included with the Silverton 620)
Traeger 575 cover $59.99 (can find them on clearance as low as $15.00, I did)

In the store it is $100 less, they add $100 on costco.com, for delivery. Also the Silverton design is down draft with grease bucket in the cabinet. If I didn't get such a great deal on my Pro 575, three covers, front shelf, pellet sensor and other odds and ends. I would be all over that 620.

Silverton is one of those models made specifically for Costco. I think they use to had a Select or something like that with a front drawer warmer.

I just saw that Costco is selling a larger Traeger with cabinet space below AND one end shelf and one front shelf for $200 less than I paid for my Pro 575 -and if that's not enough, the grill will attain 500* for searing in lieu of the 450* I'm stuck with. Here's the link:

Food for thought...I called traeger before purchasing mine and they said Costco is cheaper because they are built to a different spec. They gave an example of different metal thickness and some internal components being different. They also said same is true for Home Depot, so your best bet is to buy from them or Ace Hardware for the most authentic version.

Not entirely correct.

Depends on what models you are comparing.

Silverton is a model made for Costco ONLY.

Pro series is same grill and spec, whether buy at Home Depot, Ace or direct from Traeger.

Ironwood and Timberline 400-1200$ more and not available from Costco or Home Depot.

I stand corrected I guess, just what they told me when I called. And to be honest it makes sense because I have noticed subtle differences in the legs and wall thickness.

They explained that Costco and home depot negotiate a selling price they want, and traeger offers these cuts by making slight modifications. For this I’d be willing to bet that a silverton would have a difference price “IF” it were available elsewhere. Perhaps maybe with a lower grade auger or resources of components like sensors or electronic boards and modules.

Once again you are comparing different models. As far as difference in Pro to Ironwood I can't tell different gauge steel or "better" materials being used but certainly can tell the difference with the features, down draft, double wall insulation, side self, etc. The difference in weight, which would be a great indicator that thicker gauge steel is used, between my Ironwood 650 and Pro 575, is only 25lbs. I can see that the side shelf , larger cooking area, double walled insulation, caster wheels, would make up for this 25lbs. Not thicker steel.

You must have talked with someone who is not familiar with manufacturing and vendor laws. Models are all the same across EVERY Traeger dealer. What models they carry (Pro, Ironwood, Timberline) may differ. The Pro 575/780 is the same at Home Depot as it is at Ace Hardware.

If better materials were used on the Ace model it would have far different shipping specs (would weight more or less) but most importantly would HAVE to be a different model number.

I don't own one but have looked at the Silverton at Costco. Outside of a lighter hood (which could allow for cheaper build) it is a fine grill and worthy of the Traeger name.
