Ironwood 650
Well, I walked into the store to buy the 575 and walked out with the 650...

The Traeger rep/distributor was there and we had a long chat. I was definitely leaning towards the 650, then he added this year the Ironwoods are shipping with Pellet Sensors (no other changes) and for some reason that sealed the deal for me. The store wasn’t getting that version until the next shipment, so they threw one in for me. Figured I’d just share this if anyone is looking to buy soon, you may want to confirm you are getting it.

Traeger site shows it now too. It’s also noted in reviews with no pellet sensor.

Here as well:

Congrats on the Ironwood! I've had one for a year now and it's cooked MANY great meals. I think you made a great choice!

Thanks, just set up today. Can’t wait to cook on it! Getting the pellet guard in with pellet sensor was a change. What a beautiful unit.

Also, I was able to get the pro22 bottom shelf properly installed on the 650!

Any modifications need to be made to install the shelf? I have a 650 too and would like to add a bottom shelf. (Unfortunately I bought my 650 about 2 months ago and had to buy the sensor.).

Nope. It’s a very tight fit. You could just rest the shelf on the cross brackets, but that wouldn’t be as strong.

Hang all brackets that come with shelf (with top screws in your cross leg brackets). Take bottom screws out of a cross bracket on one end and lift up and out. Slide shelf in. It’s a bit tricky to tighten the bottom screws again. I used a bit of cardboard to hold the bracket out of the way and the last screw was tight, but it worked!

It was difficult on the Pro 22 as well, as you’ll find in most reviews.

How much fun did you have getting the pellet grate back in after you installed the sensor?!

Thanks for the detailed instructions for the install. I actually left the pellet grate out after I installed the sensor. None of my friends put theirs back in. I empty the hopper after every cook but am careful when I level out the pellets if it's running low and I know I have enough to end my cook.
