I don’t pull the trigger on biggish purchases without putting a lot of research in beforehand. For the last couple years I’ve been studying pellet grills and wanted one bad. Was leaning toward the Pitboss brands for the features and their price tag being a little lighter. Wife went ahead and pulled the trigger for me and I got a Traeger Ironwood 885 for me for Christmas. I hadn’t even considered it due to price but am thrilled to have it. I am now asking my fellow forum members for any advice that they can give to get me going. Types of food. Types of pellets. Cook times and temps. Pitfalls and things that may shorten my learning curve. Let ‘em rip. I’ve already seasoned it and cooked some ABT’s and some chicken breasts. Both turned out great using Traeger hickory pellets. (Would like to hear recommendations on pellets. Them things is pricey).
