Fantastic Grill
I received this grill 5 months ago as a Fathers Day gift from my wife. The grill replaced a Texas Elite that I have had for five years. My old grill was used 3 to 4 times a week year around. I live at 7010 feet above sea level and we have very cold winters temps in single digits at times. I had a thermal blanket and it worked very well. When I got my new grill I gave my old grill to a friend and it is still working very well cranking out great cooks. I wanted the Ironwood 885 because it was bigger had all the new added features and according to the Traeger bulletins did not require any thermal covering. I love the grill absolutely fantastic great cooks. I wanted to wait and write a review when I actually got a chance to cook in cold weather. The other night it was 25° and the windchill was 11°. I fired that thing up it went right up to my set temperature of 460° And my dinner was absolutely fantastic. I couldn't be more pleased with the Ironwood 885 and I highly recommend this product.

Fear no more
I have been intimidated for decades by grilling. We can't carry on with pieces of ourselves not working properly. After watching YouTube videos, I was ready to give it a go as they say. Whoa! I loved and my kids love the meat!!

Now have 2 Ironwoods
I have owned Traegers for a few years. This review is coming from a former anti pellet smoker competition cook. The first time I used a Traeger I changed my whole tune. I now own 2 780s, 1 tailgater and 2 Ironwood 885s. I have won a couple trophies off of each one of them and use them in my catering business all the time. From novice to expert the Traeger perfect.

Meets my expectations!
I decided to get an early Father's Day present and order Ironwood 885 last month. Received it and set it up 5/18/2021. Where to start, it has been nothing but great food coming off these smoker ( I don't really consider it a grill yet). I have smoked chickens, chicken wings and breast, St. Louis Back ribs, pork butt as I work my way up to smoking a brisket. So far the food and favor FAVOR has been better that what I had experience before. I been a loyal Weber Kettle (18 inch) and still keeping it. My neighbor has a Green Egg and originally I was deciding to get a Green Egg but my neighbor convict me to get a pellet grill more specifically Traeger Ironwood. He was right. Every meat off this bad boy has been nothing but positive reviews to the point where other neighbors are asking me to increase the meat production! Already received orders to make 2 pork butt along with 2 briskets. This is not something that I was looking to make a habit off but I truly enjoy smoking on it so going to do my best to meet the demand. Having said this, the only small hiccup that I originally had was getting the grill connected to the wifi. The issue was not a 'range' signal issue (I work in IT as a profession). For me personally, it would not connect on either of my two android phones. However, the grill automatically connected to my iPad that was more that 10 feet away (inside the house). Since the connection is linked to the account, I was able to login to my account on my android phone and it was there already. I tried many recipes and it just an amazing experience with both the apps and the smoker over all. I recommend it. I also recommend getting the Traeger All Natural Grill Cleaner - 32 Oz. and a small vacuum cleaner.

Perfect Baby Back Ribs 1st Try!!!
I've owned mine for few days and have already made perfectly seared ribeye steaks, which were very juicy throughout the entire steak. Used the super smoke feature and made wonderful smoked salmon, in a addition to making perfectly cooked ribs on my first try... Set it and forget it smoking is so nice being a single Dad with a toddler! Wi-Fire technology is fantastic, I get all the temp & timer alerts sent directly to my phone. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get into smoking. Brisket is next on the list.
  • 1-2-3 Ribs was easy to follow and tasted fantastic!

Worth the Upgrade
This my second Traeger. There was nothing wrong with my Elite 65 that I purchased several years ago. The 885 is worth the upgrade. I instantly noticed a difference with the ease of use and taste after using the super smoke feature. When I purchased the first grill, I had to purchase the top grate, accessory hooks all separate. The 885 comes loaded with these features. Maintains heat well, seamless setup, the app is a little glitchy, but by far the best grill I've ever owned. No Traeger is complete without the front fold out table and protect your investment with the fitted cover. I can't even image what Traeger will come up with next.

The Skinny:
  • D2 Direct Drive technology powers one of the most efficient pellet grills around
  • Remarkably consistent temperatures across both high and low heat settings
  • WiFIRE controller integrates with the Traeger App for wireless monitoring
  • Double-lined interior insulates heat to keep temperatures on target
  • Built-in pellet sensor alerts you well before running out of fuel

The world’s first wood-fired pellet grill brand has once again redefined itself with a feature-friendly series that’s as convenient as it is consistent.

More than 30 years passed between the debut of Traeger’s original pellet grill and the unveiling of the Traeger Ironwood series. After getting our hands on them, we think these pellet grills were well worth the wait. Traeger’s entry into Premium-class grilling lives up to its billing across the board, from even heat and on-target temperature to the high degree of quality we’ve come to expect from the original pellet grill brand. The standout feature, though, is Traeger’s innovative D2 Direct Drive system that serves as the brains behind the entire operation: super-fast startup, incredible efficiency, and convenient cooking modes that stretch the definition of “fine-tuning.”

We set Chef Tony loose on a Traeger Ironwood 885 (named for the square inches of cooking space within) to collect the findings detailed in this review. As with every product we inspect, Chef Tony quantified its quality, performance, and features through a series of tests designed to push the grill to its limits. He came away impressed on every front, a telling sign that Traeger Ironwood pellet grills are worthy heirs of the Traeger name.

Quality:

The materials used in construction are exactly what we’re used to seeing from an industry leader like Traeger.

Traeger set the standard for quality in the pellet grill industry, so Chef Tony wasn’t surprised to discover the Ironwood is a well-built machine. The exterior is constructed from 13-gauge, powder-coated steel, which is appropriately thick for a Premium pellet grill. Both the 5mm main cooking grates and 4mm secondary cooking grates are made of solid steel that’s been coated in porcelain, a material that protects the metal underneath while also making it easier to clean.

  • Several internal components are forged from cold-rolled steel, lending them enhanced strength and a smooth finish. Traeger gave this treatment to the 24-gauge interior double lining, the 20-gauge flame diffuser above the fire pot, and the 18-gauge drip tray. Chef Tony was also pleased to see 304-grade stainless steel, the top material in terms of outdoor longevity, used for the side shelf. Despite building the Ironwood series with various types of steel, all parts are covered by a 3-year warranty.

Performance:

Strikingly accurate temperatures, even heat distribution, and quick startup make the Traeger Ironwood a force to be reckoned with.

When it comes to pellet grills, performance is all about how close the temperature is to your desired setting, as well as the evenness of that temperature across the cooking surface. This just so happens to be where Traeger Ironwood pellet grills truly shine. Whether cruising on the low end or pushing the max temperature of 500°F, our grill expert found temperatures to be stable and on-target.

  • To gauge performance, Chef Tony placed thermocouples in various spots within the grill and averaged their readouts at different temperature settings. (Remember, pellet grills are basically ovens that cook with wood fire, so ambient temperature is a more relevant data point than heat in specific spots.) For tests conducted at both high and low heat, Chef Tony found that the average temperature was never more than 12°F off from the set temperature on the control panel. That’s the kind of worry-free consistency we look for in pellet grills. Preheat times from the highly touted Turbo Temp fast startup function were equally impressive: the grill reached smoking temperatures in about 8–9 minutes, and sprinted to high heat in only 12–15 minutes.

  • Burger Patties on a Traeger Ironwood

Chef Tony then conducted cooking tests aimed at getting more tangible (and, in his case, tasty) results. First up were short ribs smoked at low temperatures via a pre-loaded recipe in the Traeger App (more on this in the “Features” section). The Ironwood executed the recipe to perfection, but that’s the kind of stuff pellet grills are made for. Next came a batch of burgers, each of which turned out identical in a testament to the grill’s even heat. One final hurdle remained: a reverse-seared steak using both grates. Though pellet grills are primarily designed for slow-cooking on lower heat, the results of the reverse-sear were about as excellent as Chef Tony would expect from a traditional high-heat grill. Our expert summed up the Traeger Ironwood’s performance as follows: “Not only were there no hiccups, but I had plenty of even heat.”

Features:

Traeger’s sophisticated D2 drivetrain, wireless compatibility, and pellet sensor make operation seamless — even by pellet grill standards.

The premium features are all there, but we’d be doing Traeger Ironwood grills a disservice if we didn’t lead off with the D2 Direct Drive system. This next-level drivetrain includes a variable-speed fan and industry-first brushless motor, which combine to deliver several of the “slick” features that caught Chef Tony’s eye. In addition to powering the Turbo Temp startup covered in the previous section, the D2 drivetrain brings with it a throttle-down function that senses when the lid is up. Why does that matter? Most pellet grills interpret an open lid as rapid temperature loss and respond by feeding more fuel into the fire pot. Next thing you know, you’ve closed the lid and temperatures are as much as 200° above what you intended. Not so with the Traeger Ironwood. Rounding out the D2 Direct Drive’s impressive capabilities are Super Smoke Mode and Keep Warm Mode, the latter of which is a traditionally commercial feature that drops temperatures to 165°F until you’re ready to eat.

  • That’s a lot of work behind the scenes, though there are a few features that make themselves known with helpful alerts. The first is the WiFIRE controller that connects to the Traeger App to keep you updated on your cook without babysitting the grill. Thanks to this wireless technology, you can access thousands of recipes, choose from standard cook modes, control temperatures, and monitor pellet volume straight from your smartphone. Chef Tony was particularly pleased with the notifications from the in-hopper pellet sensor — he knew he was low on pellets roughly an hour before running out, which gave him more than enough time to refuel without losing steam on his short ribs cook. The hopper itself has a 20-pound capacity for extended sessions, along with a quick-change trapdoor that lets you swap wood pellets flavors in a flash.

  • Pellets being poured into an Ironwood's hopper

With the tech side taken care of, Traeger made sure to include a handful of practical features that enhance grilling experience. The pair of grill grates, for instance, can be set at different levels for different cooking styles; Chef Tony used the higher position for roasting burgers, and the lower position for the final portion of his reverse-sear. When not in use, the secondary grate slips out of sight onto brackets on the rear of the grill. Similarly, the stainless steel side shelf includes tool hooks to keep your grilling utensils nearby. And Chef Tony will be the first to admit he nearly overlooked the all-terrain wheels — until he had to move the grill a few hundred yards over mud and rocks, that is. But at that point, he knew Traeger had already thought of everything.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded.
