Ironwood 885
I was cleaning my Ironwood 885 today after an overnight cook and attempted to gently push the thermocouple tip back to the center of the tube that it's mounted in... as soon as I grasped the tip, it disintegrated into a powdery substance leaving only the very tip intact. I have to assume that this was some type of protective coating and now the bare thermocouple is exposed. I called Traeger and they are sending me a new (free) replacement under warranty (part number is KIT0422).

Anyone else have this happen to them?
