Smoking Never So Easy
I purchased my Traeger 3 weeks ago and have only gotten to use it 4 times thus far. It took my 2 times with the instructions, i'm a guy, what do you expect, lol. Now I have it dialed in, amazing is the only words I can use. Just like the commercial says, set it and forget it. I have never smoked Steak then cook it, that was a first. The juices ran out like never before. Ribs are amazing, my wife even ate my cooking. Doing a Pork Butt today and Chicken tomorrow. The coolest Grill on the Planet. If you read the directions, it works great. Good job guys, you have my vote.

Good Stuff
I have a Texas that had the numeric temp selector dial. What I really wanted was the "cool down" feature. Purchased this and here is the review:

Installation took about 20 minutes. Would have been less if I didn't have to hunt in my tool chest for wire ties. In a word - EASY.

First test use scared me badly as the smoker screamed way past 400 degrees at a setting of 225 and I shut it down. Appears that I nearly had a fire in the auger chamber as there was heavy smoke coming out of the pellet hopper. I cannot say what happened here is directly tied to the new controller. May have been pure coincidence. But if you do fire it up, stand close by and observe behavior before trusting it to work properly.

Subsequent to my first firing, I have had this unit installed and have had the opportunity to use it for cooking 6 times thus far. There has been no repeat of the "overheat" incident as described above but I have closely watched it just in case. Temp control actually seems to be tighter than before and by that I mean the /- range is not 15 degrees... More like /- 7 degrees. A plus there.

BUT, I bought it for the cool down feature and that works fantastically! I really enjoy it. It does appear to keep the ash in the fire pot to a minimum. I wasn't expecting there to be none but it does seem much less than there was prior to having the new controller.

A good addition to a Traeger. Definitely recommend as an upgrade. Perhaps a little on the pricey side. Maybe if there is a holiday promotional, it would be a bit better.

Great Customer Service
Well, Traeger customer service and tech support were very helpful; however, my grill is over 20 years old and has the old 6 pin wiring, single plug, so this product will not work on my grill without hard wiring. Bummer, had to return for a refund.
