Traeger Timberline Grill

Grilling typically requires a fair bit of attention. The Traeger Timberline Grill finally changes that. Though you can still use it as a standard hardwood barbecue or smoker, the Timberline features Traeger’s WiFire controller (see that boxy screen-equipped unit on the right?) that gives you the ability to control temperature and set timers from anywhere using your smartphone and an app (though it won’t flip your burgers for you just yet). The selected temperatures are attained by using an induction fan to fuel the fire and create a heat and smoke vortex around the cook chamber, which as a result also evenly distributes flavors across all of its contents for greater consistency. The grills come in two sizes: the 850 with an (you guessed it) 850 square inch grilling area and the 1300 with even more, each equipped with a pill-shaped barrel door for more vertical space, three stages of racks, and manual digital controls to ignite the hardwood pellets and to change settings right from the grill, should your phone’s battery give way.
