Well, this is my 5th cook, 3rd with it working properly. So not really, still kinda new to me.
I do turn it front to rear though, dont have a reason why. Ive just always done it that way, even in my charcoal/wood smoker. And i temp everything periodically.

I am new to this thread and new to my traeger smoker grill. I made a nice rub last night for my wings...set my grill at 350 and tossed my wings on for an hour and they were rubbery? I had to toss them on my grill to finish them to be crispy. what did I do wrong in my traeger?

I've found the best way to get crispy skin chicken is to buy a set of GrillGrates and cook at 500 degrees skin side down on the plancha side.

You didn't really do anything wrong... tossing them on the grill to crisp them is not the end of the world...
But I did wings that were outstanding, 180ish for 45 minutes for the smoke, then up to 375 for 40 minutes and they were almost full crispy but I tossed with a little hot sauce, put them back on for a few minutes and LOVED THEM.... IMO no need to do 500*, 400 yeah but I'll probably NEVER crank my grill to the 500 level

Today is day 10 and it is in the steamer for at least 3 hours. Will update when finished.
Hope yours is only 3 hours. Mine went over 8 hours to get to temperature in the steam.
Looking forward to seeing your results and impression if it

All done and dusted. If you remember I marinated the brisket in the fridge for 8 days, washed it the next day and on the 10th day I smoked it at 225F until it reached an internal of 160F, cooled and into the fridge overnight. And today was the steamer day. I steamed slowly until an internal of 195F and the I used my probe to get the correct texture. Hit that at 197F. Let it cool until it was at 160F. Then cut onto bread and wow, was it great. Spicy, moist, well worth the effort. In fact I feel it is my best result yet.

Looks nice and moist. Glad you like how it turned out.
Did you turn it twice a day in the fridge during the 8 days? The meat should have turned red right through it from the dry brine.
I want to try it again using the correct temperatures this time. It is a lot of work but I was pleased with the end results as well.

It was my birthday yesterday and I don't celebrate it anymore on 9/11. My kids wanted to take me out for dinner, so I told em to go get some Prime Ribeye's from Costco and I'll reverse sear em while enjoying a birthday bourbon. Costco had prime brisket for $2.49/lb. so they picked up a couple of those too.

Happy Birthday! Bummer that your day is forever a sad one now, I'll certainly never forget.

So, I've never grilled a rib eye, I didn't like them as a kid (they seemed gristly, but probably not handled right) and haven't had one since. It's time I tried my own. May I ask how you cook yours? Since you are in fact, the GrillMeister ;)

Reverse sear is the only way to cook steaks now. Here's a reverse seared ribeye from Costco. These are heaven!

The one that looked perfect cut to me was the bottom left one in your store package pic... I love grilling those, I give my wife half of the eye and that surrounding cut just melts in my mouth

Making sone Traeger Barbque Nachos today. We changed up the recipe to just chicken, chips, cheese, onions, and pickled jalapeños. Modified the sauce to make it a bit more spicy and trying some Meat Church Rubs I just picked up this weekend. A friend recommended these to us and once we tried them, we couldn’t get enough. I had seen the recipe but it didn’t sound appealing to me to be honest.
