Almost a year ago, Traeger made tons of updates to its flagship Timberline Pellet Grill, including a temperature control touchscreen up to 500 degrees and a wireless thermometer so you could check on your food and adjust grilling conditions from your phone.
Now, the U.S.-based grilling giant has decided to make some of those upgrades to its mid-level Ironwood Series, so fans can get some of the same tech on more affordable models. Utilizing the Super Smoke mode which enhances the smoky flavor of your food, the new pellet grills — the Ironwood and Ironwood XL — also benefit from the EvenFlow heat shield which ensures that the smoke is being distributed evenly.
The grills include carryovers from the Timberline such as the temperature touchscreen and WiFire capability, which is accessed through your Traeger app, letting you change the grilling temperature and set alarms from anywhere, along with accessing tons of recipes. Likewise, the Ironwood features Smart Combustion technology for consistent temps throughout the cooking process, made easier with double-wall construction to keep the heat inside. Other features include easy clean-up capabilities and Pop-and-Lock Accessory Rail for ultimate organization and customization.
Priced at $1,800 and $2,000, the Ironwood and Ironwood XL are slightly more expensive than the models they replace but seem to be worth it for these upgrades. Head over to Traeger’s website to get your own.
