Bought a Scout back in August. 13 calls to Traeger at this point. They’re customer service is wonderful, no disputing it. MY Scout however has been problematic at best. A Smoke Daddy Controller definitely resolved the temperature issues I was having. But, I wanted to get a closer look inside today and, figure out how to remove the auger so I could clean it. I’m troubled that the paint inside the hopper and auger channel has bubbled, melted away, and probably made its way in to the Smoke that our food has been exposed to. I’ve spoken with Traeger again today who is getting me the MSDS on the black finish they use. I would think it’s non-toxic as long as it doesn’t separate and end up in the pot where high heat makes it burn and those fumes get in to the food. Maybe I’m overthinking it. Either way, here’s a look.
