Do you have the same version timberline as us or getting the d2? 

 

It’s great that Traeger is making improvements, but I’m extremely happy with what I’ve got 

 

I’m been thinking about getting a Timberline.  It means parting with one Big Joe to make room for it.

 

Putting together money for a massive Kitchen Reno has been consuming my discretionary fund for the past year.

Several people will do a side by side video review of both models that’ll provide a more accurate and fair comparisons between the newer and older models. 

 

Anyome who has the older Timberline still owns one of the top five pellet grills on the market.  They’re not hurting.  

 

Here’s the splashy marketing video for the D2.

I have a 2017 KJ Classic and a Rec Tec Trailblazer. Been doing my own comparison between the two. A work in progress.

 

The Rec Tec does OK. Lot's of Traeger  information on KG forums. Does anyone own any other pellet grill?

 

I still lean toward the KJ as being my go to grill.

 

-good thing I am Not an outdoor grill sales person

People on a tighter budget also have for option for the Iron Wood too.  The Iron woods is the most adorable insulated pellet cooker to hit the market.

I dont think the ironwood is insulated like the timberline at least it dont look like it to me perhaps the sides

It’s not stainless either.  It’s not a Timberline but it much better than the Pro model.   The Iron wood will end up outselling the Timberline since it’s in the sweet spot average consumers are willing to spend for a pellet cooker.

 

The Timberline caters the more demanding crowd like us.

Personally, I am always excited to learn about new grills and updates.  I doubt I'd ever own a pellet grill.... My backyard is tiny, and hubby hated it when I had three grills.  But I do find them fascinating and enjoy learning about them. 

 

Same. I want to try a stick burner ever though I know I will only use it sparingly

I love the idea of owning a stick burning.  It’s too costly to get your hands on large quantities hardwood to burn in Western Canada. 

 

Pellets are easier to come by.

How often do you light up 2 big joes for a cook ? 

 

50 - 60 times a year.  It’s used as a second oven during low and slows.  I figure I will get more mileage with One Big Joe and a Timberline down the road. 

 

I should be able to fetch $3 grand Canadian for the Big Joe and the high end clear cedar LED light table I built.  

 

Clear cedar is increasing scarce.  It’s as expensive as many hardwoods.

 

I was was actually thinking about buying a pellet cooker when I bought the 2nd Big Joe.  

 

At that time, there wasn’t as many high quality pellet model options back in 2013 without selling a left kidney to ship something up from the US.

      Since I bought the Kamado, the pellet grill has not seen much love. So last weekend I bought a brisket and fired it up.
       
      It was pretty tasty. 
      I’m thinking, other than fuel, pellet vs lump, it probably does not make much difference wether you control the temp by limiting fuel (pellet) or by limiting air flow, Kamado or Kamado with billows. You still have to pick the cut, season, adjust for temperature and time.
      I admit I have looked at various billow and temp control with blue tooth and or WiFi. Usually they have extension cord, and tons of wires , probes and so on. I really wanted to get away from dragging out the extension cord. There is a thread here on KG featuring a portable system with battery power. I like that idea.
      Anyhow, this weekend I was back on the Kamado with excellent results.

      I see the interior tempreture probe in the 850 is in the top right hand part of the pit. Mine looks quite sooty?. How do you clean it,it looks a little fragile and i dont want to break it. Any step by step photos?

      And....... it was AMAZING!!!!  
       
      This was was a BBQ shop class sponsored by Traeger and the instructor was Diva Q.  I got my husband a seat for Fathers Day, but a couple of weeks later decided the older daughter and I would go to - so got two more seats and we decided to make a quick weekend getaway out of it. 
       
      First of all, Traeger knows how to put on a class. There was a row of Yeti's in the back... and they were well stocked - with good stuff.     
       
      Diva Q is an AWESOME lady. Super knowledgeable and really good about sharing the "why" of doing things a certain way. She knows her stuff.  And she made it a ton of fun, too.  Had a number of really good laughs over the course of the evening and learned quite a bit. She demonstrated chicken thighs, ribs, pork butt and brisket. And she wasn't shy about debunking some BBQ myths along the way - at one point when asked a question about one such myth from a participant, she asked my daughter to cover her ears and told a guy that it was total BS. Too funny.... lol
       

       

       

       
       
       
      And the best part... we finally got our Timberline 1300 that we have been waiting for for months. (Felt obligated to do a pickup shot Bosco style) Giddyup......

      I really enjoy my Traeger and plan to keep it, but I need a grill.  Is a kamado type grill overkill?
       
      I'm primarily looking for higher heat and the ability to sear.  Despite the convenience of gas, I'm leaning towards charcoal for higher heat and the "fire" experience.
       
      I don't need the low slow capability of the kamado grill, but they are catching my fancy more than a charcoal kettle grill.  I'm thinking about Costco's Pit Boss.
       
       
      Should I just save $400 and get a Webber kettle?  Or is a kamado an experience not to be missed?
       
      Thoughts?
