Saw this posted on Reddit, some folks are claiming their Pro Wifire models now go to 500 on the temp dial. This was after they got the V02.01.00 update.

I got the update yesterday and my grill still only goes to 450, on both the grill controller and app.

I can confirm both my Pro 575's have the update and are now able to go to 500.

Thank you for your reply. I guess I will have to investigate why my Pro is not going to 500. Where do you see the 500 setting? Is it from the grill control, and where it use to stop at 450, now goes 450+? How about the phone app, does it show a 455, 465...495, 500 setting?

Yeah. So I turned the grill on and let it get to 165. After getting to 165 I was excited to twist the dial to see if it would go past 450 and boom it went to 500.

Sorry yes I have the ability to do it in the app.

Awesome. I will have to reboot my 575 and check that out. Only thing I noticed different when I used mine after the update was it failed to allow me to go to the menu to allow me to reset the clean your grill notification. I tried a couple of times and both times it failed until I waited a bit. Possible the update failed to apply. I'm pretty good with this stuff so I will try to force an update.

Yes I updated my 575 and it now reaches 500 degrees and fast. The speed in which it reached that temp was unbelievable.

I've done a couple nights @ 500, and did venison chops which turned out amazing on the hot and fast. I will say pellet consumption obviously is a lot faster, but the high temp is defiantly worth it. Going to try a pizza probably this weekend.

What did you do to update your machine??
I just turned on the machine hit the menu button and while I was searching for the Ver number it said "update in process' came back in 30 mins and all was done.

Was just on the phone with Traeger trying to update my unit.
Tried everything nothing so being forwarded to the higher up managers. Learned how to do factory reset. Hopefully it works.
Did your app update as well???

I wonder if the update now allowing the grill to reach 500 degrees will cause issues on the hardware. Peeling paint, warping heat diffuser, damage to porcelain coating on grill grate. I hope they designed with the 500 degree update in mind at the time. Has anyone experienced any issues thus far?

The Ironwood has the same paint & porcelain grates and was designed to go 500F. Overheating and paint peeling is always a concern with these grills.

I've seen a few threads where paint peels. My old Pro 22 did, but I had the insulated blanket on it. I think the biggest issues is a dirty grill, which could lead to grease fire or if there's too much ash.
