Timberline 1300
I am building an outdoor kitchen and was wondering if anyone else has incorporated a timberline into their kitchen to achieve a built in look. I have seen some just sitting on a counter but I’m not sure how you would do this with the grease trap. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum @Dougf

I have not seen any Timberline built in, but hopefully someone else on the forum can help you out!

I would make some kind of rolling trolley board as a base for the grill. Remove the wheels and mount the grill legs to the trolley. Non-swivel wheels on the trolley, just facing fore-aft, for easy pulling the grill out of the cutout in the counter.

Alternately, you could remove the legs and attempt to mount the grill body on a very strong pull out shelf I suppose. Just need to consider heat from the grill in the planning. My TL850 weighs a TON, I was barely able to assemble and stand it up alone.

Do post up what you come up with!

I am currently in the process of an outdoor kitchen build that will incorporate a Timberline 1300. The kitchen is built and designed with a shelf system and the plan is to modify the legs so they only extend 2" below existing metal Skirting. and a drain valve built into the drain pan

Interesting, the timberline side drain pan is a bit "sloppy" in the way it drains into the pan. It works well but I do like to open that drawer and clean up the gasket and drain drawer cover. I would suggest you make provisions to be able to clean that area.

Do post up some pictures of your setup!

Agreed on the sloppy line up. Still expecting to have to pull unit out a couple time each year to give unit a going over. The shelf is built into the outdoor unit and has a custom built 12-gauge 316 stainless tray that the Timberline rests on.

Well, I was able to finish 90% of the outdoor kitchen build this weekend. Incorporated a Traeger Timberline into the build after a few modifications and addition of a Stainless Platform. A couple trim pieces to finish and it should be finished.

My God, that location could not be prettier. Welcome to Rich's meat castle!

I do wonder how super smoke is going to go there. Hopefully prevailing winds flow the right way.

Wow, that is beautiful! May I ask how using the Traeger in the built in outdoor kitchen has worked out? I am putting a pool in this summer, and will be building a outdoor kitchen myself. Could you give me some advice on how you were able to achieve such a thing? Any info you could give would be incredibly helpful. Thank you!

It has worked out Great. At this point we have used it on everything from a Turkey to cake and it is has operated perfectly. We are in the South Florida there is occasional power outage so it is hooked into the emergency power. The Stainless tray under it was fabricated from an industrial kitchen work table that was purchased on Amazon. It was raised two inches on risers to allow access to drain pan. We went with the 1300 over the 850 which has proven a good decision. Good luck

@RichM love what you did on your setup. Is the 2” enough clearance for breathability? How about the space in the back? I keep reading horror stories about how the grill starts to rust, paint coming off, etc. from the bottom and back when placing the Traeger on the counter. I’m wanting this type of set up but very hesitant. Any help or suggestions you have are appreciated. Thanks!

Air movement has not been an issue. The Timberline's dual wall construction runs at a much lower exterior temperature. I keep a close eye on the surrounding surfaces (which are all masonry) and nothing even reaches a point that you cant place you hand on it.

That’s good news! What type or brand of risers did you end up using? What are they made out of?

My first thought was to cut the legs down to two inches and have it ride on the new legs. I ruled that out because if I ever wanted to convert it back to a full unit I would have to by new legs. That said, I just began looking for metal blocks at the height that I wanted. Granger or other industrial supply houses would work well. I ended up using metal 4-gang electrical boxes that I filled the other edges to smooth them and panted to match the unit. Seemed to work well and be cost effective. If I still had budget money left I was going to have a local shop just weld me some boxes out of stainless to match the bottom tray.
