- Timberline 850
If I were you, I’d cancel the order. Traeger’s aren’t what they used to be. Quality is down, customer service is down, the temperature controllers are junk.My 850 hasn't even arrived yet and I'm starting to think I picked the wrong grill. I take a lot of pride in keeping everything I purchase in tip top shape. If the paint bubbles on my brand new $2,300 pit I am going to lose it. I'm seriously thinking about canceling my order and buying a Yoder YS640s instead. It's more expensive, but I've seen no reviews indicating things like this with the Yoder. Is this paint bubbling a rare thing, or is it common? I can understand isolated problems, but if this is chronic I'm absolutely going to cancel the order.
I was cooking a pizza on a stone at 500 degrees. Pizza turned out excellent... grill not so much
I also did the steps to cure the paint...maybe it helped, maybe it didn't.I just got my 885 and I'm enjoying it. For me it's a slow cooker, so temp doesn't go higher than 425...i have other tools for that . From all the stuff I've read it's the higher temp that causes problems with finish.
