Traeger grills cook on an average. Even if the grill is running a bit hotter than expected, what is important is the average temperature of the cook.

Ensure your grill is running the latest firmware and you have the latest app version installed on your phone.

How often are you opening the lid while cooking?

  • Repeated opening of the grill can cause the temperature to fluctuate quite a bit. This can cause multiple issues including the increased temperatures as the grill tries to compensate for the repeated opening of the lid.
  • Remember, "if you're lookin, you aint cookin"

Ensure proper startup.

Hot weather may cause the grill to run a bit hotter.

  • The controller should be able to make up for this given time.

Did you check the firepot before starting the grill?

An excess number of pellets in the firepot during startup will cause a flare-up at the beginning of the cook.

Are the internal pieces of the grill in installed? (drip tray, fire pot, heat baffle, thermocouple)

  • The grill will run much hotter if the heat baffle or drip tray are not in the grill or severely damaged

Is the thermocouple damaged?

  • Ensure the thermocouple isn't bent or touching anything.
  • Ensure that the orange protective cover on the thermocouple was removed.
    • If the cover was not removed prior to the burn-in, please contact Customer Service.
