And got a Timberline 1300 - and ended up with one of the units that have an issue with excessive soot.
After getting my soot issue resolved (thanks Stone BBQ Supplies) this is the inagural cook. Beef ribs for tomorrow night, and wings tonight. The ribs are rubbed with Oakridge Black Ops Brisket rub - cause really, are beef ribs really just brisket on a stick? The wings are rubbed with Plowboys Yardbird - those are dinner tonight. Thanks for looking!

When Al bought our first Traeger I mocked him. Now I am sold. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Eggs, but the Traeger are just easy.
And yes, I know I am cooking things in pans - I just have a hard time actually getting this thing dirty.

Done these several times, and they always make a hit at gatherings. The low heat / smoke seems to diffuse some of the heat.

Fresh Jalapenos deseeded and halved top to bottom
Fill each half with cream cheese
Wrap with bacon of your choice
Splash some worcesterchire on the bacon, get some on the japs too
Sprinkle the bacon with Slap Ya Mama seasoning
Smoke at 200 for 2 hours as far from the fire box as possible
Turn over one time to brown the bacon all around

Not too hot and spicy, but beautiful flavor!

I detect a pellet head in the making?!?! I've become a total pellet head over the past couple of years. Because of the ease, I am cooking outdoors more then ever! The food ain't to shabby either... :)

Those bones and wings are making me hungry, and I just finished supper! Congrats on the new cooker, and I know what you mean about easy, I just did marinated shiitakes on my gasser. I used to give people guff about not cooking over "real fire" too, but life gets busy and sometimes the end result is what it's about, other times we want the process.

I love my 1300 and did not have the soot issue. What did you do to correct the issue?

I here that there is a new software upgrade released so I will turn mine on today and download it. suppose to address some timing issues with the fan and motor

I needed to do a software update - my version was at 01.00.00, and needed to go to 01.01.00. I heard there was an update that came out this past Monday - need to upgrade mine too. Does Traeger alert you to these upgrades or do they just assume you will automatically connect to Wi-Fi when you power up?

Congrats on the grill. Im looking into the timberline also. Love the size of the 1300.00

Costco near me has a traeger roadshow and was hoping to see the Timberline. But sadly wasn't available. Tried to get me interested in the elite model and the pro 34 but Im only interested in the timberline.

Price wise they are about $100.00 less than retail. $799.99 for the Pro 34 and $999.99 for the Select Elite Their demo deal only included some pellets, cover and "assembly." It seemed a little weak.

Asked if the other traeger lines would get a wifi upgrade but rep said doubtful.

I am on the 01.01.00 as well it seems to update automatically. I never had the soot issue with mine. I believe they have a 01.01.01 update set to release shortly to correct possible
Spot issues in the future.

Knock on wood I have had excellent luck so far with mine. I am very happy with it

Apparently it was only some of the 1300's and I just got "lucky". Hope I'm that lucky with the lottery this weekend!!
