Made some modifications to my Ironwood 650. Added bigger front shelf and utility rack under the grill (aluminium). Also extra heat sensor to make sure that temp is correct. Magnetic stickers so that I remember what pellets are in :) Pellet storage bin from IKEA :LOL: Oh yeah and made some ribs (y) One mod still waiting, I'm going to put kamado gasket to the lid, too much smoke escaping on the sides, IMHO.

Always keep mine clean. Been grilling with Traegers for over 12 years. Currently have an Ironwood 885. Looking forward to winter to see how the temperatures hold. Since you are further north than us I would like to get a report from you on how yours does in the cold. Thanks

When not in use, I keep grill in warm garage. I live in south part of Finland, winters are quite mild. Occasionally we might get -20C (-4 fahrenheit) or under, usually -10C (14F) or warmer. I'll let know how grilling goes when winter starts :)

I forgot to tell you thanks for the photos. I like the mods you have made, also great looking ribs. Let me know next time you are cooking them we will just pop over.

Bottom shelf is awesome! The front shelf folds down or is it permanent out?

@jp9724 front folds down, much better to have good working area. I have quite big meat trays, now I don't have to worry them tipping over from the counter :)
Well done!

Gasket BTW works perfectly, no smoke coming through the lid sides. And it is very soft to put lid down, very happy with that mod (y)
