Fantastic
I would like to start by saying I came from a traditional smoker. I have spent many years trying to perfect one thing on that smoker and it was a pork shoulder. I was looking at a Traeger and it wasn't until a random stranger walked up to me and told me to spring for the Timberline 850 that I had bought one. Well... that man changed my life. Today my wife and I made two shoulders. They were by far the easiest shredding, juiciest pork I've ever seen. When my wife tasted it she gave my a fiery look that I have not seen in our 13 years of marriage. My only issue with this grill is the food is just too good and it's the only food our family will eat now. The app is super convenient to use and has fantastic recipes. Take it from someone that spent lots of time starting a wood fire to make assorted meats this things is the best!!

Great Service
I bought the original 850 and had temperature consistency issues at year 3 or so. I was in the retailer talking about it and decided buy a Memphis Beal Street. After 6 months with it, the rtd probe went bad, and now its controller has gone bad. I had a conversation with the Traeger Rep at the retailer I bought both grills about the Traeger, and Traeger sent a new one, free of charge. That is GREAT SERVICE and a manufacturer that stands behind their product. I am going to swap the Memphis controller and sell it. Traeger you are GREAT!

I love my 850's... yes, I have two!
I full willingly admit it, I have a problem! I've owned so many grills over the years it's crazy. From Primo, to Pitboss, GreenEgg, etc... I can honestly say nothing compares to the build quality coupled with ease of use as these Traeger's! My only wish is that Traeger would come out with an iPad app. C'mon Traeger, you made an app for the watch... how about one for the tablet? I know the iPhone app will work, but you have to switch to portrait view to use it. Other than that, I really don't have any cons on these grills. Some will ask, why didn't you just get a 1300 instead of 2 850's? Great question. The logic is, I've done a 23lb brisket on 1 of my 850's (turned out amazing btw), and that's probably the biggest piece of meat I'll ever need to cook. Having 2 though allows me to cook everything I need for a meal outside as I can run at 2 different temps. If you're on the fence on whether or not to go with a Traeger, I can honestly say they are money well spent! Oh, and I did not receive an incentive for this review, but selecting "yes" that I did is the only option

Buying this grill may result in a loss of privacy
Ever since I got this grill I haven't had a peaceful night alone. Now friends are always bringing meat over wanting me to have cookouts. It's been about a month now, a few days after getting this beast delivered (timberline 1300) my girlfriend found out how much I spent on it. We came to the conclusion that I may have a problem, she diagnosed me as a grilling addict and I'm okay with that. She also said that now I have to cook on it everyday to justify the price, jokes on her because I'm okay with that too. But now I have guests over every night wanting me to throw their food on the grill too and although I enjoy it I haven't had a date night since. While I am very pleased with the product its important to understand the side effects that may come with it

Great Grill
I consider myself something of a grill master. This is by far one of the best grills that I have ever used. No hot spots or flare ups. Just even cooking.

Very happy with this smoker
Expensive? Yes, kind of.. Most expensive grill I've bought? Nope. Quality and satisfaction? Spot on, and I'm not the easiest to please. I've called twice with minor questions and both times have been quite impressed with service and a short wait time. You WILL need 2 people at the end of assembly to set the smoker upright but moves around on the wheels pretty decent. The app for the wifi is great. Get yourself a cheap or used shop-vac to keep it clean (I'm weird that way, sue me). The cover they offer is the best I've ever seen, worth every penny even though I keep mine indoors most of the time.

Timberline 850 is AWESOME!
I have done a whole brisket, chicken legs and breasts, pork chops, St. Louis style ribs, and my daughter even did a couple of batches of the gingerbread cookies. I'm doing a 10lb. Prime Rib tomorrow for Christmas and am totally confident that it will turn out perfect. I have never had that feeling before! I live in NW Montana and it's pretty cool up here in the winter, but this cooker is so well insulated that it is very capable of maintaining temp even if I'm searing something at 500° F! With the built in temp probe and the WIFIRE I can sit in my recliner and monitor or change settings as I need. I have fought with gas grills, and electric and gas smokers and temp control was impossible. This unit is the ultimate! I will never buy another cooker that's not a Traeger!

The Skinny:

  • The original wood-fired pellet grill brand
  • WiFIRE Technology allows you to control grill from your smartphone
  • Double-walled insulation retains heat
  • Pill-shaped barrel gives you more cooking space
  • TRU Convection creates powerful smoke vortex of flavor
  • Extra-large capacity hopper with low-pellet sensor

Things We Love:

As the original pellet grill brand, Traeger is a true pellet pioneer and is the most popular name in the pellet grill industry. That's why it's no surprise that Traeger continues to push the envelope of pellet grill innovation with the Timberline series, the most advanced Traeger grill to date.

WiFIRE

The Timberline series offers innovative WiFIRE Technology, which uses your wifi network to connect your smartphone to the grill. The Traeger app allows you to set and monitor grill temperature, set custom cook cycles to maintain consistency every time you cook, and gives you access to thousands of Traeger recipes. It also gives you access to GrillGuide, where you can download recipes to your WiFIRE enabled controller. GrillGuide programs the whole cooking cycle from start to finish by changing temperature, smoke, and air circulation automatically as the recipe progresses. The Timberline also includes a handy meat probe, allowing you to monitor the temperature of your food on your smartphone to ensure doneness. Simply put, WiFIRE lets you entertain with friends and family or relax while you cook, instead of hovering over the grill.

TurboTemp

With a temperature range of 165 – 500 degrees Fahrenheit, the Timberline offers the widest temperature range of any Traeger grill. It also maintains your set temperature within an incredible 5 degree range. The Timberline offers Traeger’s Turbotemp system, making ignition and preheat time faster than ever before. The grill is built with 16 gauge steel, which is thicker than other Traeger grills. The professional grade lid gasket and double-walled 304 stainless steel insulation helps the grill achieve ultra-precise temperature consistency. Using a set of thermocouples, we were able to put the Timberline to the test, and found that it produces amazingly consistent temperatures across the entire volume of the barrel.

D2 Controller

The beauty of the Timberline design is its innovative D2 controller. The D2 is a PID controller, the most accurate and stable controller type available for regulating temperature. The D2 allows the fan to utilize variable speed functionality, meaning it will speed up or slow down as necessary to properly control temperature and air flow. Traeger has combined this feature with their patented downdraft exhaust to create TRU Convection, a powerful vortex of smoke moving inside the Timberline’s barrel. The downdraft exhaust port is located at the bottom of the Timberline’s pill shaped barrel and is oriented in a way that smoke is only allowed to leave the grill after circulating around the inside of the barrel, coating your food in delicious smoky flavor.

Brushless DC Motor

The Timberline’s auger is the industry’s first brushless DC motor. This innovative feature achieves higher torque at a lower RPM, meaning the auger is more powerful, efficient, and far less likely to get obstructed. Since brushless motors have fewer moving parts, the auger’s motor is much more resilient than a brushed motor, and will work for longer without requiring much maintenance. The efficiency of the brushless motor allows the auger to move the same number of pellets with less power than earlier models.

Sizes

The Traeger Timberline comes in 2 sizes, the Timberline 850 and the Timberline 1300, which indicates the total square inches of cooking space that the grills offer. To maximize the cooking space inside the barrel, Traeger gave the Timberline a pill-shaped design which makes the barrel taller than other pellet grills, providing 3 fully adjustable cooking grates. The main cooking grate can even be lowered closer to the fire pot for searing steaks, or raised to be further away from the fire pot for smoking.

SuperSmoke

The Timberline also offers a couple new features that aren’t found on other Traeger grills. With the push of a button, Super Smoke mode drops the temperature of your grill to its lowest setting and shuts off the fan. This lets you craft the ultimate smoke profiles by blasting your food with a high dosage of smoke. The Keep-Warm mode keeps your food warm on the grill for long periods of time, which is great for entertaining.

Hopper

The Timberline offers the largest hopper capacity of any Traeger grill. You can store up to 24 pounds of pellets, which is large enough to hold an entire bag of Traeger pellets, plus more. Traeger grills have a burn rate of 2 pounds of pellets per hour at the highest temperature setting, and only half a pound of pellets per hour at the lowest setting. A built-in pellet sensor warns you when pellets are low. The pellet cleanout shoot has a magnetic door so you can easily switch pellet flavors on the fly.

Design

Like Traeger Pro Series models, the Timberline also features a saw-horse design and all terrain wheels, which adds durability and toughness to the grill. The grease management system channels grease into the disposable concealed grease pan for easy clean up. The grill also includes a handy stainless steel front shelf and side shelf, along with a magnetic cutting board for convenient food prep.

Accessories

Traeger offers several useful grilling tools that will give your grill even more cooking versatility. Some of the most popular Traeger accessories are bottom shelves, a digital thermometer, chicken throne, and grill racks.

Things To Consider:

While the Timberline does an amazing job at retaining heat while cooking, we noticed that the temperature drops quickly when you open the lid, and can take a while to get back to your set temperature. It’s also important to remember to prime the auger when you first use the Timberline, or when you run out of pellets, as it may cause the auger to seize.

Question:
do you need to empty hopper when you finish grilling or can you leave them in until next time also is there a "fillline"
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hello. You do not need to empty out the pellets. But it is recommended, as they can absorb moisture, which would cause them to jam the auger, or attract insects.

Asked by Dr sandmanAnswered by Joey, BBQGuys Expert

Answer:
I live in Southern California and use my Timberline weekly. I only swap out pellets when I want to change the type of wood type. According to Traeger: "Pellets can be compromised from exposure to water, age or handling. Keep an eye out for the following to determine if a bag of pellets has gone bad: • Pellets are dull and have no sheen • Pellets easily crumble • Moisture in the pellet bag/storage container • Clumps of saw dust • Sawdust throughout the bag" The same applies to pellets left in the hopper. There is not really a fill line, but the Timberline has a pellet level sensor that tells you when more need to be added.

Answer:
I empty mind useless I am sure when I will cook again. I bought 3.5 gallon buckets with lids from Home depot. That holds a bag of pellets. easy to empty and store. I also put something in to absorb moisture. That is the issue. Buck

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.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

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. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
