Traeger unveils new Ironwood grills with touchscreen controls and increased efficiency

Traeger, the leading manufacturer of wood pellet grills, has revealed a new and improved version of its Ironwood series. This WiFi-connected pellet grill is one of the company’s midrange models, offering a more affordable option for consumers. The Ironwood now features a complete redesign with numerous upgrades, including a touchscreen controller and WiFire technology, making it easier to control and monitor the grill from anywhere via the Traeger app.

In addition to the features already present in previous models, Traeger has taken steps to make the Ironwood more efficient. The company has introduced Smart Combustion technology to maintain precise temperatures, an EvenFlow heat shield to distribute heat evenly over the cooking area, and an insulated double wall construction to prevent unwanted fluctuations in temperature. The grill’s Downdraft exhaust system and FreeFlow firepot work together to keep smoke circulating around the cooking chamber, creating an ideal environment for smoking, baking, roasting, braising, and grilling.

The Ironwood series also boasts Traeger’s EZ-Clean grease and ash keg, which conveniently sends liquid run-off and pellet debris to one place for easy removal and cleaning. The pellet hopper can also be easily cleaned out from the front, allowing for easy switching between different pellet varieties.

While the Timberline model has more premium features, including an enclosed cabinet, casters, and an induction burner, the Ironwood keeps the traditional four-leg base that Traeger grills are known for. The Ironwood features the ModiFire system of accessories, which can be snapped on using the “Pop-And-Lock (PAL)” rail, allowing for personalized positioning of shelves, storage bins, tool hooks, and more.

The Ironwood series comes in two sizes, the Ironwood and Ironwood XL, offering 616 and 924 square inches of cooking space, respectively. The Ironwood series is available now from Traeger and other retailers in the US and Canada for $1,799 and $1,999. While the Ironwood does not come with Meater wireless probes, it does support them, and users can purchase a two-pack for $230.

Overall, Traeger’s Ironwood series provides a great option for those looking for a midrange pellet grill with advanced features and technology, making it an ideal choice for outdoor cooking enthusiasts.
