Well, I know nothing about traegers but I've heard they are good equip so you are good there.
I've had a little better luck cooking a little hotter than the 225 that people generally do but I'm a BGE guy. I go about 275 or so and I don't wrap at all. Aaron (Franklin) does a central TX version of the TX crutch. As in he uses paper instead of foil to push through the stall (I'm assuming you know what the stall is). I think you will do fine with your plan. Interested to hear how it goes.
