Great Grill
I consider myself something of a grill master. This is by far one of the best grills that I have ever used. No hot spots or flare ups. Just even cooking.
It has been a year sense taking delivery.
It has been just over a year since getting my Timberline 850 delivered and I am just as excited about using it today as I was then! The quality of the unit is solid, it looks just as good today as the day I purchased it and working great. The D2 controller is awesome, super easy to use and the temps are maintained to within few degrees (I have tested with other thermometers). Some have stated problems with connecting to WiFi but I had no trouble at all, first time it worked seamlessly. I love the D2 and Wifi, I have controlled the temps of my grill from across town and getting the alerts on the probe temps has allowed me to switch to the keep warm mode within the App which has been awesome. I live in Ottawa, Canada and I have used my Timberline on the coldest of days (-40) with no problems at all, shovel a path to it and it has always started up and heated up with no problems at all. It does have a cold weather start setting so it takes a few minutes longer to start. The all around double wall construction is what made me pick the Timberline due to the cold temps and I am glad I did. I also keep mine very clean and vacuum out the dust regularly and wipe down the inside and outside of the grill often, looks brand new still. Everything I cook on the grill has been exceptional, especially any type of poultry from full roast turkeys to chicken breasts or thighs, always juicy and flavourful. I have done Prime Ribs roasts, reverse seared and the taste was superb with the right about of smoke. Ribs have always been great and the queso dip with chorizo sausage is always a hit with guests. I also purchased the rib rack recently and love that I can fit a ton of ribs on it and it fits the grill nicely. I also like the orange tray I ordered with it, nice for pulling meats off and for serving outside too. After a year+ I am very happy with the purchase and by the looks of things, this thing will last many many years as well. Only downfall, the cover for it has began to fade and show a lot of aging, a bit of leaking too, that is disappointing. I would highly recommend the Timberline 850, I have been happy with the performance, size and most of all the cook results, everything is always delicious.

Traeger 850
Love my Traeger! Set it and forget it (unless it’s BBQ of course lol). Side table and cutting board provide much needed extra space.

what a grill!
I live most things about this grill. The only obvious improvement that i am aware of is that the front shelf is not deep/wide enough. Other than that this cooker is easy to use and cavernous! It holds temp very welland due to its insulation, it burns pelletsvvery efficiently. I also have a charcoal grill but this grill is usually ready to cook much sooner and the only thing that it does not do as well as my Kamado style charcoal grill is high temp searing. I love all the recipes that are part of the app and i live how i change temps from internet and monitor internal temp remotely.

Best Grill Ever
This product has changed how I think about and prepare food in the best possible way. The food I make on my Traeger is tastier, healthier and so easy to cook! Best decision I ever made was to get a Traeger!

Happy Customer Here
Had a Pro 575. Happy with the upgrade. Lots of nice touches and higher quality finishes. Cooks great, holds heat, nice size upgrade from the Pro 575, holds basically an entire bag of pellets, easier to clean, and love the drip tray built into the design so I don't have the pail hanging on the side. Plus the extra 50 degrees (500F) helps with searing and pizzas. WiFire works well and was easy to set-up.

Best Grill Ever!
This is my second Timberline 850 and it’s the best Traeger I’ve ever owned. I’ve passed down to family members the other Traegers I’ve owned, still working and they love them. This thing will hold above 500 degrees in the Colorado winters and love the app features. Get one!

From the beginner to the Pro. Great unit!
The 850 Timberline is a very well built unit and pleasure to use. The features are excellent and simple to use. This was a big step up from my Traeger Pro 22 and totally worth the upgrade.

Game changing!!!
We use our 850 almost everyday! Absolutely game changing. In hindsight, I wish I had bought the bigger one because I am making so much extra food for our extended family. We have made baby back ribs, tri-tip, multiple beer can chickens, pizzas, pepperoni rolls, garlic knots, hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken breast, bacon, spaghetti squash, grilled veggies, brisket and tandoori chicken. Keep in mind we have only had it for three weeks now.

just average
I was dissapointed with the grill. It leaks grease around the trap. The lid doesn't close squarely. The insulation around the lid needed to be redone to get the flimsy clips to hold it in place, and it still isn't perfect. This is my second traeger, and for the top of the line, I was expecting more.
