Just a simple brisket I put to cook on Saturday, first time on the Traeger I over cooked it a bit but tasted great.

Nice. Great smoke ring. What temp did you use for smoking it?
Well...my Traeger temp is of (or is it off) by almost 40*-45* but here how it went.
On the Traeger temp was set to 225* and super smoke for 8.5 hours. Then the brisket was pulled wrapped and temp was set to 295* until it reached an internal temp of 205*(mistake should have pulled sooner).

What I was going for was 195* on super smoke (but would have to set temp on Traeger to 235 and would lose super smoke) for 8 hours (or when desired bark is achieved) then 250* until done.

My Thermal Works Smoke saw 180-185* for the first 8 hours and ~250* for the second part. Set meat probe for alarm 202*. I think I’ll try for 225* next time as it was a little dry.

hope that’s not to confusing, almost have to be a rocket engineer to get the grill temps right. It tasted really good and had a great bark. The wife and I like the bark. The brisket was only seasoned with course black pepper and kosher salt.

Jealous of everyone’s meals, I returned my pro 575 because I was done with dealing with the headaches of it not achieving temperatures. My ironwood 650 should be delivered early next week and I cannot wait!
Returned? Where was this purchase made?

1st brisket this weekend. This will be my 5th cook and first long one on this 850 from hell. Can only drink and pray all goes well. Oh I have had this grill since July with only 5 cooks, that is why the the outcome is never know. See what breaks this time. Plus with my temp swings the cook outcome is 50/50.

Started two 10 LB pork butts. Running the Traeger at 170°F that equates to 180°F pit temp on the Fireboard2. I will bump the temp up in the morning to about 210 so thw pit runs at 225
Furtafo Farms Hickory pellets in the hopper (super smoke on) and Furtado Farms Maple in the tube extended for 6 hours smoke time on the tube.
Marinated the butts in apple cider and rub mix. Used Bad Byron's Butt Rub in the marinade and on the butts. The marinade is in the water pans as well.
Put them to bed for the night and will check in the morning

Start my spritzing with Apple cider and Apple cider vinegar every 45 minutes
Bumped my temp to 210°F, see if the grill settles at 225°F and hopefully have these in another 5 hours

The graph is from the Fireboard2 probes.
There is one monitoring the pit temp, i have one in each of the butts.
My Traeger probes aren't accurate (pit and meat probes), I ruined a few of my first cooks by trusting them.
The top line is showing the pit temperature and variances. You can see when I bumped the temp this morning and you can see the drops when I have been opening to spritz the butts
The lower lines are the butts and their progress.

What model is your Traeger?
I have an Ironwood 650. Just got it this year. I will probably work on getting the probes changed on it through warranty over the winter
Aside from what is posted here from the probe app, it also all stored on the cloud including notes and pictures. Every black dot on the graphs represent a note or photo added. So you have a permanent record of your all your cooks using the fireboard. I bought the drive unit, and it also will control the fan for my Komado grill. It has 6 probe inputs, so you can monitor a lot at the same time
You can also share the live stream and old cooks with friends and family.
It's only drawback would be the probes are wired. I wouldn't doubt we'll see wireless probes from future advancements in the Fireboard line.
I am very happy with it, glad I made the purchase. It can also be used for cooks indoors as well.
