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 don't see the Traeger Silverton 620 Pellet Grill listed on the Traeger website. is it a grill made only for Costco :unsure: it sounds like a good grill

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.
