Works great, no WiFi issues
I saw the negative review about WiFi and the 2 out of 5 rating and need to counter post. Sounds like a user error. Yes, I have multiple access points on my WiFi and if your going to leverage the features of WiFi you should make sure you have WiFi coverage where your grill is located. Same concept applies for a WiFi doorbell or WiFi security camera on the outer parameter of the home that might be far away from your single WiFi router configuration. Other than that, I don't have any issues with the WiFi features of the grill, I don't even have to open the app on phone and I get temp reached or low pellet or shutdown finished alerts. More importantly, the grill is awesome, I never accidentally overcook meat even at higher temps, generally never cook above 425 (if I'm just trying to cook fast) otherwise 225 super smoke and use the thermometer, which also sends an alert to my phone when reaches set temp. Would I buy this grill again, yes ... would I get the 1300 for more grill space, nope, normally a family of 4, even with small gatherings completely able to make 12 burgers and 12 cobs of corn with no issues. Would I recommend this grill, yes, of course.

Do not buy this grill for the Wi-Fi
When I first got it it needed a firmware upgrade. I had to bring the grill inside and set the Wi-Fi right next to it. It took a week talking with them to figure out what to do. No one was there that could just send a single through for the upgrade. I had to set it up and leave it that way in the next day someone would send the message through to upgrade it. The problem is also that the disconnect on the app it's right next to shut down the grill recommend you should never use The app without your glasses. You would think that won't be a problem. But in the interim I also upgraded my Internet to the that hawk xx AC 3200 I've already spent over an hour on the phone trying to figure out how to get it to connect. Someone even told me that my wife I can't have more than 10 characters in it. It had 32 in the password before. But yet it will not login. If you are buying this grill for the grill him alone it is a wonderful grill and great to cook with. If you're buying it because you want The enhanced feature of Wi-Fi do not get this grill

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

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. 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.
