Hello
Just purchased this pellet grill. After doing some digging on the internet it appears that this model has had a recent update from a knob based controller to a fully digital controller. The paper manual that came with my unit shows the digital controller however the instructions provided will not work for the initial firing step. Phoned Traeger and sorted out the confusion. They also sent me the correct manual which turned out to be wrong. They sent me the manual for the knob based model. I think I have sorted out most of my questions but I did note several references to putting the grill in the Smoke mode. I see there is a smoke position with the knob based unit. There doesn't seem to be a Smoke settings with the digital controller. Does anyone know if it's just based on setting the temp to the smoke range or is there a setting with the controller that I am missing? Sorry about the lengthy post.

Well I've been using the Tailgater almost daily and am very happy with it. Never did find a dedicated smoke setting but it produces lots of smoke between 180 and 225 which is fine. I also come to understand the reasons behind temperature fluctuations that others have reported. All in all I'm very happy with the performance of this grill.
