“Stale smoke” is funny, it reminds me of my first job at Best Buy ages ago, I was instructed to tell people that the gold plated printer cables (that cost $20 more) provided richer color on your prints because uh gold conducts better?

Ironwood 885
So I’m looking for a new Traeger but can’t decide on the model.
The sales guy at bbq world was very pro on the pro and was negative on the ironwood. In particular the downdraft feature. According to him the chimney needs to be at the top or else you get stale smoke on your food. But the other bbq speciality store said it’s a great feature.
In my mind that’s the deciding feature.
Thoughts on the downdraft or the grills in general.
Thanks
As an Ironwood 885 owner, either save your money and get the pro, spend more and the timberline, or look into a different brand.

It seems to be a common issue of a lid gap on the ironwoods, which lets heat/smoke out, hurts insulation, and I'm sure it won't help pellet burning efficiency in the winter.
