Anybody know what this noise is? I've only been using my Traeger 575 for about 5 weeks now and on my 7th cook I started hearing this random noise. I've vacuumed it twice within the 5 weeks of usage. No big temp fluctuations. Hoping it's not a big issue, I called traeger support they said it's from bigger pellets being crushed in the auger. Has anyone else experienced the same sound?

Sounds like the auger creaking while moving pellets, maybe humidity causing some sticking/binding. Using nice shiny pellets?

That sounds like pellets "creaking" when wedged between the auger and the tube.

It sounds to me like pellets “squawking” in the auger tube.

Edit: My Bronson does it more often than my 780, but both do it periodically.
