    You won't achieve much if you don't come prepared. Winging it as you go is simply not an option. Borrow a few ideas from the experts and use that as your starting point. Packed with well over 1,000 recipes, this app will definitely improve your chances of winning.

    I have owned a basic Traeger grill purchased impulsively on HSN for over a year ago with surprisingly amazing results time after time. This includes an unprecedented confidence developed after consistently spot-on results from routine family meals to high pressure holiday and party events. This includes Traeger 3-2-1 ribs, seafood, and numerous summer veggies that might be the most incredible foods I’ve ever cooked. I have also used this simple grill as a supplemental oven for every holiday due to its amazing consistency and results; We depend on it unconditionally. Today I received my new Ironwood 650, purchased for me by my wife for my birthday, that raises the bar even higher. After I synced the grill with my Traeger app and used the probe to cook filet mignon to wood-fired perfection, I now understand the potential that lies ahead for me and my family. Bottom line: Thank you Traeger for helping me become an unbridled, confident griller with noboundaries to what I’m able to cook to perfection. Sign me up to be a Traeger evangelist. Boom!

    App could be so much better. Instead on going to the next step and timer immediately. Have a button to continue. Long smokes have multiple steps and preparation in-between all the smoking. Good info on the app. Do not like the fact I get communication errors between app and grill randomly. All settings meet recommendations. Some smokes no communication errors and others nothing but them.
  • Excellent App! Nov 26, 2020

    The Traeger app works very well. It is very easy to use and provides the right amount of information in a simple yet effective manner. I initially I was a bit of trouble connecting it to the wifi but it was not the app or the wifire’s fault. I had my 2.4 and 5 GHz wifi on and on top of that I had my cellphone’s VPN turn on. I paused the 5 GHz band in my router and turned off the VPN in my phone and the wifire connected to my wireless network quickly. After it connected I turned on the 5 GHz band and it works perfectly. No issues at all. This 5 GHz issue is not exclusive of the wifire. I have also encountered it when connecting other 2.4 GHz only devices to my network. This app would be better if it had an iPad version so I could make full use of the iPad screen when reading recipes. Additionally it would be super useful if once you load a recipe to the app, it would automatically track the times and set the temperatures according to the recipe.

    I have just received and assembled the smoker. There are some things I would have wanted better upon opening. The box was a little worn for wear but my kids very much enjoy the box cabin! I think there should have been nylon tape to hold the lid closed. Wife tipped to far and dinged the hood from falling open. Somethin not favorable. Also underneath the front shelf the stainless discoloration from the weld could have been touched up with some scotch bright. Also the ground edges around the front of that shelf could be a bit smoother. Just a very small detail that I think would take this smoker to the next level of luxury. The good about this smoker is the easy setup. The WiFi signal was easy to configure. A feature I’m looking forward to use. I will update this review after some time to give a full detail of my opinion. It is a very nice smoker and I look forward to many cooks for friends, family, co-workers, and hopefully do some charity work for hungry people.

    Great app, but for the love of all things holy, please allow customization of the alert tones and volume. It's annoying as F to be eating your delicious food cooked on the Traeger and have the ear splitting nerve wracking alarm go off telling you the cool down cycle is complete.
  • I love my Traeger, but the wife hates it Apr 26, 2021

    By Koo1aidCody
    *STORY TIME* Let me tell you something, I’m no pro at grilling whatsoever. I just moved into a new neighborhood with my wife and 3 kids. Local hardware store happens to be a Traeger dealer, so I said to myself “you know what? Why not?”, so I grabbed this pro series 780. Now, I grew up on nothing but charcoal, and for special occasions the propane grill got busted out. This smoker absolutely blows any other grill I’ve personally owned out of the water. My wife hates this thing because I’m finding things that she makes,(which is phenomenal, for anyone who’s curious), and trying a shot with the Traeger. And somehow, someway, it makes it better. I’ve even had the neighbor ask me what I’m making because the aroma this unit puts out Is mesmerizing. If you want to amp up what you’re already good at, or what your significant other is good at making, do yourself a favor and buy yourself one of these grills, you won’t regret it 🤙🏻🤙🏻🤙🏻

    Works great but could be better. Would be nice if they had a widget so you can glance at your phone and see grill temp, cook time and probe temp so you don't have to open the app to check on it.

    I have two Traeger machines and enjoy them very much, aside from some recurring frustrations with how they perform. ! I’m a creative back yard cook and like to draw inspiration from the recipes on Traeger’s App but it is definitely frustrating to do a search. If the search criteria I input isn’t very specific, I get anything but what I’m looking for. I also don’t like how you can’t go back to the exact spot you came from when using the App for my iMac, I get stuck having to scroll from the beginning and just don’t understand why the developers would set it up this way. This is not a new problem, so I really wonder if anyone at Traeger is really paying attention?! Despite my frustrations, I do continue to use the app and my machines. I guess I’ve come to understand the limitations of the Apps and go in knowing I may not always find what I’m looking for. I’m currently looking at a different version of these machines but I’d probably still always refer back to Traeger because most all of the recipes they offer us users are pretty darn awesome!

  • Unfortunately, you’re losing my support Mar 11, 2020

    By reddaddude
    My Traeger with wifire worked flawlessly for months. Suddenly in February, the wifire can’t pick up WiFi signal. Every phone, computer, iPad, and smart tv in this house has no issues. Neither does my Ring alarm, cameras and door bells. But suddenly wi fire went to hell. The app locks up and I’m sick and tired of retrying over and over again to connect. Especially when it was so easy and flawless for months. Your reviews are building about this problem and you even call out “having provisioning problems” on your website...so it must be a serious problem. The solutions, unfortunately, go toward telling your customers to fix their WiFi. Well, I set my router ON my grill. Can’t get any closer than that! Still no luck. I bought this model BECAUSE OF Wi Fire. I want it fixed and tell whatever engineer messed this up to be exited quickly.
  • Very helpful, easy, and vast with recipes. Apr 12, 2021

    By Dlux_x
    I downloaded the Traeger app at first just to see what they have on there, not necessarily for their recipes, and now after using it for a while I love it. The simplicity and ease to find a delicious recipe is one tap away which is so helpful when throwing a party and you want to impress your guests. You can’t open this app and not find what you’re looking for. They exceed all expectations for a bbq app. I’ve used this app for so many recipes now for when I have parties and I just want to try something new and may I say Traeger does not disappoint, along with their smoker. You gotta be a super picky eater if you have trouble looking the perfect recipe cause every recipe I’ve used has been finger lickin’ good. The videos they have are very helpful as well to learn or see other methods on how other people cook. Traeger has done an amazing job with the app.

    Just ok. Should at least have the features of a $50 No name wifi thermometer. But there's no ability to graph or see earlier data. Basically you're blind to the past and $1000 smoker controller is about the same as taking instant readings with dollar store meat thermometer. Apparently according to google search they do datalog but don't share it with the consumer.
  • Terrible wifire performance, worthless tech support, horrible customer service May 22, 2020

    By Parkcitybrad
    The short version is this: this has truly been one of the worst customer experiences of my life. I was very excited to get my new Traeger 575. I specifically chose this model because of the wifire functionality. Unfortunately it has been INCREDIBLY disappointing. I been working for WEEKS to get it to connect to the app. I went through all of their online troubleshooting guides, factory resets, etc. Nothing. I called customer service only to wait on hold for over 2 hrs. The rep was very friendly and walked me through his troubleshooting process. Nothing. He told me he was going to escalate this to their IT team and I should expect a call in 3-5 business days. It’s been over 2 weeks. Nothing. I called back in and waited another 2 hrs, spoke to another friendly rep, repeated the same steps. Nothing. I called Ace hardware to initiate a return. Because I ordered it online from Ace it actually drop ships from Traeger. The Ace guy called the regional manager for Traeger and explained my situation. The Traeger guy told me that I can’t return it just because I don’t like it, and suggested I call tech support again. Don’t like it?! It doesn’t work!! This has truly been one of the most disappointing customer service experiences of my life. I’ve listed it for sale on Craigslist and will replace it with a Rec Tec.

    I should have paid attention to the ratings. I assumed it was people who didn't know what they are doing. But, the technology really, truly is terrible. The app is fine. The customer service reps are great. But the technology is pure, hot summer, dumpster trash. I was told to disable my network security in order to connect. That's right. RIsk my home internet safety AND MY JOB, (work from home at times) to connect the grill. I gave two stars because customer service reps are great.

    I bought a Traeger for the custom cook ability via wifi. Now they removed the feature from the application? I could have gotten a much cheaper grill from a different company if I wanted to babysit it all day and night.
  • Do not buy a Traeger! Aug 16, 2020

    By BKangas
    I hope this review saves someone time and money. Buy a Green Mountain Grill, you get more for your money and the WiFi actually works! I have a Pro 575 with “WiFire”. The grill by itself work fine, but the additional $$$ for the WiFire (which never works) is a complete waste. I believed Traeger’s advertising about the WiFire capabilities and was I miss led. The WiFire has been nothing but disappointments since the day I assembled the grill. Traeger customer care has not been helpful. I have over 30 emails back and forth trying to figure out the issues, they say “oh, you just need to update your app/grill”, “your signal strength is to low”, or “can you move the grill closer to your router?” The app/grill is up to date and the grill is less that 10’ from my router and is separated by a window! The customer care rep that I last spoke to on the phone didn’t even know what their app or grill menu looked like or the options for either of them!! How can you help someone with a product you don’t know anything about? If you want to pay to much for a pellet grill buy a Traeger, if you want to pay even more for a WiFi pellet grill (that doesn’t work) buy a Traeger. But if you want to save money, get more, and have a WiFi grill that works, don’t buy a Traeger.

    Edit: yes the app is handy but it should have been updated by now. I feel that I should be able to see my past cooks and all the data from the cook. Example: I smoke some ribs, and the data I get back is I smoke them for 6 hours, at 1209pm the lid was opened and temp dropped to 160. It then came back up and wasn't opened for another two hours. That data traeger has when you call.This app is very handy. It allows you to control your grill from anywhere and there are many recipes that's work well.
  • Calamitous WIFIRE setup process Mar 9, 2020

    By Milanracer190
    I work in software for an IoT company. It’s immediately clear to me that this company, despite making an outstanding grill, made some poor engineering decisions with their WIFIRE module and system. Building firmware, mobile, and backend services is hard, so I feel for ‘em, but man, this was a frustrating user experience. It took at least fifteen tries to get the grill set up over Wi-Fi, the last attempt only successful using a different phone running a different OS... The app frequently claimed the grill could not be found, despite the grill initiating its configuration and setup process. Mind you, the grill and phone were on the same networks the whole time. The grill then repeatedly failed to complete the “Downloading Files” step and remained in what appeared to be a zombie state such that the app couldn’t find the grill. Fortunately, it got far enough in the last attempt to allow my other phone to complete the setup, at which point the grill appeared in this app. To the program manager, or beancounter that reads this... hire a software architect or a few more devs to build you more robust firmware, cloud services, and mobile apps. They aren’t cheap, but support incidents aren’t either!

    The new WiFire app doesn't have custom cooks "within" the app, this was very useful. No need to Learn From the Pros: Detailed videos featuring recipes and tips & tricks-keep those on the website, not the app. • Over 1500 Recipes: Access amazing wood-fired recipes that cover everything from BBQ to baked goods,make the recipes modifiable (temps,timers,probe).useless recipe when we can't customize it.
  • Does not work as advertised Jul 22, 2020

    By Mad in tn
    Terrible product and support. They don’t stand behind the product. I bought the grill specifically for the WiFi feature and the grill does not work as advertised. The WiFi does not work. They treat me as though I am the problem and they don’t seem to stand behind the product or warranty. I called tech support several times. I was cut off several times. They had me do the same trouble shooting steps over and over and over with the same results of the WiFi not working. I can delete the app and reload it just so many times before it becomes a statement of insanity. I did everything they told me yet it won’t work and they refuse to replace the interface. Then I was told that it will be an undefined period of time before any updates are available since the software version I have is old. This tells me that the WiFi never worked since the old software is the problem??? I could have saved the extra money I spent with a smoker that’s manual since that’s how I’m having to use this smoker. I’m fact I was told to just use it manually by tech support. It was a constant effort of deflection by tech support as though it wasn’t the grills failure. I hope I can get my money back from the store.

    Works occasionally. I constantly have to uninstall and reinstall my grill because it always says it's offline. There should be an option to refresh the status of your grill. It's really frustrating when the grill is 15 feet away from the router.

    I have owned a basic Traeger grill purchased impulsively on HSN for over a year ago with surprisingly amazing results time after time. This includes an unprecedented confidence developed after consistently spot-on results from routine family meals to high pressure holiday and party events. This includes Traeger 3-2-1 ribs, seafood, and numerous summer veggies that might be the most incredible foods I’ve ever cooked.

Today I received my new Ironwood 650, purchased for me by my wife for my birthday, that raises the bar even higher. After I synced the grill with my Traeger app and used the probe to cook filet mignon to wood-fired perfection, I now understand the potential that lies ahead for me and my family.

  • Works like a champ! Feb 16, 2020

    By TheSockit
    After a lot of research , I purchased the pro-780 this week. There were other grills that had same or better build quality at a lower price, but what won me over was the reputation and devout following that Treager has. The reviews speak for themselves. I am blown away by how great this grill works, “ set it and forget it” is legit! I had some minor hiccups with the WiFiire app initially, and had to remove & reinstall the app because it wasn’t connecting to my WiFi, but after I reinstalled the app it has been working perfectly, no issues at all. I am able to dial up my grill settings when I’m out and about. I can make adjustments on the fly, and I get notifications when my grill hits its desired temps. This is a total game changer coming from a Big Green Egg. I am so happy with my purchase. Thanks for putting out a good product Traeger.

    I also had a problem with my Traeger when it updated while I was cooking I called and the person that I talked to that I had a program he knew nothing about. I thought he did not know what he was doing after he made attempts to correct the problem he advise me I don’t know what I was doing so I sent him a screenshot and he referred me to management after waiting 3 or 4 days I called and a lady answered the phone I explained my problem and she looked at The program and told me I’m going to fix your bbq so you can get back to enjoying your self. I felt she would take care of this problem and she did and I’m extremely happy she did and outstanding job please thank her for me again and every day for a month because she definitely is the best one I ever talk to. Again thank you so much. Mirl

    Great app No one is making the investment in content and support better then Traeger. This app is great even if you don't have a Traeger! The recipes and videos are helpful for any BBQ. Now... If you do have a Traeger it's even better. Bring able to control and view your cook temp from anywhere is amazing. If you're away and hot your temp you can switch to "keep warm" and be at by the time you get back... From say work! Keto up the great work Traeger!!!
  • If you can’t connect to the Wi-Fi read this Sep 24, 2020

    By Lovemytrips
    I was totally frustrated trying to connect my Wi-Fi to my grill nothing seem to work and it was like all the other reviews saying that it doesn’t work... my local grill shop walked me through it and I hooked it up on the very first try after starting over and it works perfect!! The biggest thing you need to remember is that your grill only works on the 2.4 ghz!!! If you have the 5.0 as your Wi-Fi network it will not work. Remove the grill from the Wi-Fi and start over if it is not working. Make sure your network is 2.4 and follow the directions. After hours of frustration thinking that it isn’t gonna work, it connected on the first attempt once I was on the 2.4 and not the 5.0. Hope this helps!!

    Works great but could be better. Would be nice if they had a widget so you can glance at your phone and see grill temp, cook time and probe temp so you don't have to open the app to check on it.
  • New App look, feedback Feb 22, 2021

    By Reme18MZ
    This latest app has one annoying feature. The grill page has the "Remove Grill" button at the bottom of the screen. This should be a rarely used item and be buried in settings! On an iPhone one often touches the bottom of the screen and the last thing needed is to accidentally delete the grill from the app! It already almost happened, please fix this! Edit, the app was updated to load faster, it does, however it still has the "Remove Grill" button at the bottom of the screen, this is Not Good! Edit, Apple Watch Support added, Great! But! Traeger needs to add complication support for the richer watch faces like Modular Infograph! This would be way better, allowing great grilling faces with timers, weather, and external thermometers like Fireboard, all on one face.
  • WiFi frustration Jul 18, 2020

    By arizona grillin
    I’ve had my grill since Father’s Day and have not been able to connect to WiFi until today. I called customer service and they said that it was my internet and that it must have been sending out a signal other than 2.4ghz. I bought an extender thinking that would help and it did not. I even connected my laptop to the router to see that I was indeed using 2.4ghz. Today I finally tried to use an old iPhone6 that my son currently uses to play games. It is linked to my new phone(iPhone 11) through the cloud. Using my iPhone 6 I was finally able to connect the grill to my WiFi. I’m not sure why it works with 6 and not the 11. The app itself is great for recipes and other ideas. Just need to work on the WiFi issues. Thanks.
  • Worth the purchase May 24, 2020

    By Rickardo R.
    I had a green egg and then after 2 years, my wife convinced me to buy a Traeger. Initially, I thought “pellet” grilling was for sissies and the taste of the smoke would be of lower quality. BUT I WAS WRONG! The only thing that I do not like about my Traeger is the hinge on the door. I purchased a thermal covering for the winter so I can get to my higher temperatures due to the cold but it adds more weight to the door. By design, the door hinge is not strong enough to hold the door open over time. My Traeger is only two years old and the hinge has already broken on my door. It is under warranty and I need to replace it because it. And yes, I sold my Green Egg less mess, less fuss, and less temperature fluctuations! I rate the Traeger 4 Stars. Once the hinge design is corrected, I would give it 5 stars!
  • New user remarks Aug 19, 2020

    By Brian_indy
    I’ve been using this app for 3 weeks including 2 cooks. I like the remote capability. The fact that I can work (virtually due to covid) and have some amazing food cooking at the same time is pretty awesome. That said, I think the app has a ton of room for improvement. The biggest in my opinion is that it has no memory, I can’t graph my cooks to see how quickly things are cooking and how steady the inside temp is. A close second is that I can’t have more than one food probe so I can’t really monitor more than one rack of ribs or whatever. This is a pretty big miss in my opinion. I realize that this would be a hardware enhancement but I honestly think traeger could release a WiFi capable probe system that could be paired with the app as well.
  • Updates for App Ideas Jun 24, 2020

    By Tipsycappo
    I’m new to Traeger in the past few months and have been loving trying the recipes on this app. I do have an idea or two for an update though. Can you make it possible so we can arrange our saved recipes by either food types or ingredients, I forget that I have some great recipes saved because I can’t find them. Another idea is to be able to combine recipes to make our own custom meal plan ideas. Make so we can grab 3 or 4 different recipes and group them together so it will show all the ingredients and steps together. ( May just be me but find it hard backing in and out of different recipes while cooking). Just some ideas. Otherwise no problems from me with the app
  • Updated app won’t launch Jan 17, 2020

    By J3sterHead
    Updated: The app works again without another update; after some random amount of time, the app finally launches and the grill is up to date. This is a five star app, but marking it 4 star for an upgrade process which shows no user feedback or info. The pre-release email said that it would update.. it didn’t say “you’ll lose the ability to control your grill for some seemingly random amount of time.” Previously: The last Traeger update, on iPhone 11 Pro, running latest iOS fails to launch. It gets to the Traeger splash screen and freezes. I’ve tried being on WiFi, and not, to see if it mattered if the grill was in range. No difference either way.
  • <add ignite option > Mar 27, 2020

    By _j_mac_
    I got the silverton model with the wirefire I am diggin’ how I can check or adjust the temp while at the store or in the front of the house. Hey developers, I was trying to send you a recommendation, but can’t find one -please give us the ability to send you a quick recommendation! Secondly, what if we had the option to remotely “ignite” the traeger instead of having to press the ignite button on my silverton. I can imagine now, I prep the meat, text my kid to take the meat out of the fridge to get it to room temperature. I get on my app and upload the profile for the meat and recipe of choice (while still at work” . Come home and bam, smoked meat is done did! Are you catching what I’m throwing?
  • Great grill...terrible app...still!! May 30, 2020

    By traeger use
    We had a difficult time getting the grill to connect, but once it did, it worked fine. For four grilling sessions. Back to being unavailable...disappointed one of the grill’s selling points is the wifire system. Then the update took away the grill connection altogether! We have been trying to reconnect using an iPhone and Android...neither will finish the connection process. Very disappointing to waste hours trying everything to get it to connect. Even put the grill within 10 feet of the WiFi extender. This is just sad!!! Please spend some of my purchase price to hire some who knows something about app development!
  • Like the new look Apr 14, 2020

    By GreybeardCT
    I haven’t used the app yet “in action” but overall I’m liking the new look. I appreciate the recipe preferences settings, we have no allergies but do try to cook low sodium. The recipes browsing was easy but many of the pictures didn’t come through. I’m hoping they will fill in eventually, cooking/eating is a visual experience. We will try it with the actual grill sometime this week, looking forward to reporting on that. Next, how about supporting the larger iPad screen? You could do so much with it.
  • May 1, 2021

    By JJ Reis
    App could be so much better. Instead on going to the next step and timer immediately. Have a button to continue. Long smokes have multiple steps and preparation in-between all the smoking. Good info on the app. Do not like the fact I get communication errors between app and grill randomly. All settings meet recommendations. Some smokes no communication errors and others nothing but them.
  • Apr 23, 2021

    By Jeff Scott
    Great app, but for the love of all things holy, please allow customization of the alert tones and volume. It's annoying as F to be eating your delicious food cooked on the Traeger and have the ear splitting nerve wracking alarm go off telling you the cool down cycle is complete.
  • Needs Work Feb 2, 2020

    By 4LoJeepTexasUSA
    I have two Traeger machines and enjoy them very much, aside from some recurring frustrations with how they perform. ! I’m a creative back yard cook and like to draw inspiration from the recipes on Traeger’s App but it is definitely frustrating to do a search. If the search criteria I input isn’t very specific, I get anything but what I’m looking for. I also don’t like how you can’t go back to the exact spot you came from when using the App for my iMac, I get stuck having to scroll from the beginning and just don’t understand why the developers would set it up this way. This is not a new problem, so I really wonder if anyone at Traeger is really paying attention?! Despite my frustrations, I do continue to use the app and my machines. I guess I’ve come to understand the limitations of the Apps and go in knowing I may not always find what I’m looking for. I’m currently looking at a different version of these machines but I’d probably still always refer back to Traeger because most all of the recipes they offer us users are pretty darn awesome!
  • Mar 27, 2021

    By Jamie Jacobson
    The app seems like it wants to be helpful but it has some issues. First if I accidentally hit begin there's no way to cancel it to restart, i have to shut down the entire grill!!! Second It skips steps for a few recipes I have tried. And third There is no way to edit notifications I get one for every thing it does OK seems nice but can I change the sound it makes because the one that they have on their is awful and it needs a kinda snooze feature if you missed the first one when food ready.
  • Useful for controlling my Traeger but could be improved Sep 15, 2019

    By JuanRangelTx
    During my first overnight cook I somehow managed to hit the “keep warm” setting while keeping an eye on temps and never noticed it, this almost cost me my game day meal for the family. I thought the smoker was smoking but for at least 5 hours the grill was just keeping the meat warm. I think the keep it warm setting should be moved to the temperature scroll or at the very least require confirmation before setting the grill to warm. One other thing that I find disappointing is not having the ability to track the temperature through the cook. I use a cheap Bluetooth monitor and the app allows me to see the temperature and gives me a graph for the past several hours allowing me to know what the temps have been using a simple line graph. I thought for sure this app would do that, but unfortunately I will need to use another app + thermometer to track temps throughout the cook. So far these are the two features I feel that the app is missing.
  • Apr 10, 2021

    By Gerry Jackson
    Not bad to track temps. But.... Need to fix the timer and pellet level. The timer just doesn't work. The pellet level jumps all over, 80%, then 40%....not accurate at all. Good list of recipes.
  • New app less reliable May 7, 2020

    By J777civfun
    I love my Traeger grill and am on my second grill. I brought my first, smaller, to my in-laws (yes, I love them). Recently, I’ve used the new version of the app to monitor the grill. It “sticks” with old information in terms of the probe temp and the grill temp. This is bad. I have to go out to check the actual information. Restarting the app reconnects and gets you the current temp, but for long smokes I don’t want to have to restart the app. I use a separate blue tooth monitor as well but I like the WiFi access to get better distance support. Also, while I love the recipes and videos, they get in the way of grilling. Get me back to the simpler, quick way to access and control my grill. I find this version more in the way than the older version. Keep it simple please.
  • Love the Smoker not the App Nov 25, 2020

    By Cotter's iTunes
    The smoker is amazing and everything I’ve cooked has been awesome. The App though, ugh. The amount of complex recipes are insane. I like to try everything. I’ll cook the complex but when I’m trying something for the first time, I want it simple. When I first bought my smoker, I had a 10lb pork shoulder and I just wanted simple directions of temperature and time. Nope. Had to chose rubs and flavors and number of people to feed. It be much better if I could just say I have this big a piece of meat, offer me directions. Maybe even saying simple to the complex. Also, when you do follow their recipes, build in more cook time. I had a recipe that called for 12 hours. I had to cook for 20. I learned that isn’t surprising but all of their recipes seem to be on the low end of the spectrum.
  • Not very accessible! Feb 12, 2021

    By N4ofl
    This app does not play nice with apples voiceover. It is a real challenge to use this app. When using voiceover it is very confusing and we miss a lot of the information that would be helpful. As far as the Wi-Fi goes I did get it to work but I think part of that is only because I am an IT person and knew what to look for. You must have a 2.4 G connection in order for the Wi-Fi function to work. It will not work on 5G. The customer service people are not IT people a lot of the information they gave me which is flat wrong. They do however try to help. Paragraph I am hoping that someone will fix the accessibility issues with this app and make it much more voice over friendly so everyone can use it.
  • Good app, needs improvement Aug 6, 2020

    By ewfunnell
    I recently bought a Traeger 575 and I love it! I use the app almost every time I cook because I’m a novice and use the app to learn. I have a recipe that I use to app to run load the 575, but recently is does not load anymore. Also, often times recipes require you to remove the meat, do more prep to it and put it back at for a certain amount of time. But, when running cooking cycles through the Traeger app, it does not give you the ability to reset the timer. ie - first cycle finishes, timer immediately resets for the next cycle, but it takes 5-10 minutes to prep for the new cycle. There is a “reset” button, but it does not work. So, hoping these things get fixed! If they do, I’ll re-rate to 5 stars

    By Chips Family
    Just ok. Should at least have the features of a $50 No name wifi thermometer. But there's no ability to graph or see earlier data. Basically you're blind to the past and $1000 smoker controller is about the same as taking instant readings with dollar store meat thermometer. Apparently according to google search they do datalog but don't share it with the consumer.

    I should have paid attention to the ratings. I assumed it was people who didn't know what they are doing. But, the technology really, truly is terrible. The app is fine. The customer service reps are great. But the technology is pure, hot summer, dumpster trash. I was told to disable my network security in order to connect. That's right. RIsk my home internet safety AND MY JOB, (work from home at times) to connect the grill. I gave two stars because customer service reps are great.
  • Apr 24, 2021

    By Marcus Fernandes
    Edit: yes the app is handy but it should have been updated by now. I feel that I should be able to see my past cooks and all the data from the cook. Example: I smoke some ribs, and the data I get back is I smoke them for 6 hours, at 1209pm the lid was opened and temp dropped to 160. It then came back up and wasn't opened for another two hours. That data traeger has when you call.This app is very handy. It allows you to control your grill from anywhere and there are many recipes that's work well.
  • Calamitous WIFIRE setup process Mar 9, 2020

    By Milanracer190
    I work in software for an IoT company. It’s immediately clear to me that this company, despite making an outstanding grill, made some poor engineering decisions with their WIFIRE module and system. Building firmware, mobile, and backend services is hard, so I feel for ‘em, but man, this was a frustrating user experience. It took at least fifteen tries to get the grill set up over Wi-Fi, the last attempt only successful using a different phone running a different OS... The app frequently claimed the grill could not be found, despite the grill initiating its configuration and setup process. Mind you, the grill and phone were on the same networks the whole time. The grill then repeatedly failed to complete the “Downloading Files” step and remained in what appeared to be a zombie state such that the app couldn’t find the grill. Fortunately, it got far enough in the last attempt to allow my other phone to complete the setup, at which point the grill appeared in this app. To the program manager, or beancounter that reads this... hire a software architect or a few more devs to build you more robust firmware, cloud services, and mobile apps. They aren’t cheap, but support incidents aren’t either!

    Works occasionally. I constantly have to uninstall and reinstall my grill because it always says it's offline. There should be an option to refresh the status of your grill. It's really frustrating when the grill is 15 feet away from the router.

    Easy to use, love the recipes, love the help it provides for your grill. But the timer doesn't work. Timers have been pretty reliable on phones for the last 20 years, seems to be like this should be a simple one to take care of!

    Update: customer service was able to get me connected to the grill. Simple solution, turn off mobile data while setting up grill. Wish that would have been in setup instructions. Connection seems to he good. Setup separate 2.4GHz wifi just for grill. Named is UselessWiFi. Seasoning grill now. Like being able to adjust temp on grill and set timers while sitting on the couch. CSR said firmware would auto update, it hasn't done that yet.
  • Good performance, poor security and privacy Aug 22, 2020

    By Heinzelman
    Let the buyer beware that you will have to set up a very simple six character password for your grill which exposes your network to every Tom, Dick, and Harry that wants to hack you. My advice would be to set up a separate network on your router exclusive to the grill. The app works very well with the grill and it’s temperatures and the temperature probe. One of the worst things about this app is that it demands you to acknowledge whether you want alerts and notifications every time you use the freaking app, when I say no I mean no and if I want to reconsider it I will do it on my own. This feature alone drives me insane. The terms and conditions for this app or like many other apps and that they collect so much data about you that you know they’re selling it. I don’t understand why I need a login to use my grill. Yeah, yeah, security etc. whatever, let me hook up to my grill the way I want to instead of trying to shove worthless recipes and marketing down my throat every time I use the app.
  • Great grill bad Tech Apr 26, 2020

    By Mrsellison
    So I bought the Ironwood 650 with the WiFire. Well since day one getting the grill to connect to the WiFi and app has been a pain. I’ve deleted and reinstalled over and over again. Once I finally do get everything linked up they do another update and then I have to delete and redo all over again to get my grill to link to my WiFi and App. This newest update takes the cake as i cannot get my app to read my grill. App says grills is offline. Grill says it’s connected to WiFi, WiFi sees grill only the app doesn’t. I Deleted everything and started at square one again. 5th time and it still says my grill is offline. I bought this grill so could bbq quicker and better preheat from work and cook when I get home. Yet the tech doesn’t work like it should. Love the flavor, love the convenience of not standing over the grill, but over paid because of the tech and I’m super disappointed in what I got. This time I did not get what I paid for.
  • Wifire connectivity is spotty at best Feb 4, 2020

    By James R P
    Traeger pro had a very hard time connecting to WiFi. Turns out I had to pair it 15-20 times before it finally downloaded a firmware update from Traeger. A new update came out yesterday and suddenly my grill lost connectivity. My grill is still connected to the same WiFi but my updated app doesn’t recognize the grill on my network. The whole WiFi experience is pretty shoddy, I’ve had smokers that were 1/4 of the price that connected to WiFi much easier. They need to fix this issue, a big name like traeger shouldn’t have this many issues. Search for WiFi problems with Traeger and you’ll find thousands of people like me with zero support or help articles on their site. May end up returning this to the store. It hasn’t lived up to the hype.
  • Terrible wifire performance, worthless tech support, horrible customer service May 22, 2020

    By Parkcitybrad
    The short version is this: this has truly been one of the worst customer experiences of my life. I was very excited to get my new Traeger 575. I specifically chose this model because of the wifire functionality. Unfortunately it has been INCREDIBLY disappointing. I been working for WEEKS to get it to connect to the app. I went through all of their online troubleshooting guides, factory resets, etc. Nothing. I called customer service only to wait on hold for over 2 hrs. The rep was very friendly and walked me through his troubleshooting process. Nothing. He told me he was going to escalate this to their IT team and I should expect a call in 3-5 business days. It’s been over 2 weeks. Nothing. I called back in and waited another 2 hrs, spoke to another friendly rep, repeated the same steps. Nothing. I called Ace hardware to initiate a return. Because I ordered it online from Ace it actually drop ships from Traeger. The Ace guy called the regional manager for Traeger and explained my situation. The Traeger guy told me that I can’t return it just because I don’t like it, and suggested I call tech support again. Don’t like it?! It doesn’t work!! This has truly been one of the most disappointing customer service experiences of my life. I’ve listed it for sale on Craigslist and will replace it with a Rec Tec.

  • Do not buy a Traeger! Aug 16, 2020

    By BKangas
    I hope this review saves someone time and money. Buy a Green Mountain Grill, you get more for your money and the WiFi actually works! I have a Pro 575 with “WiFire”. The grill by itself work fine, but the additional $$$ for the WiFire (which never works) is a complete waste. I believed Traeger’s advertising about the WiFire capabilities and was I miss led. The WiFire has been nothing but disappointments since the day I assembled the grill. Traeger customer care has not been helpful. I have over 30 emails back and forth trying to figure out the issues, they say “oh, you just need to update your app/grill”, “your signal strength is to low”, or “can you move the grill closer to your router?” The app/grill is up to date and the grill is less that 10’ from my router and is separated by a window! The customer care rep that I last spoke to on the phone didn’t even know what their app or grill menu looked like or the options for either of them!! How can you help someone with a product you don’t know anything about? If you want to pay to much for a pellet grill buy a Traeger, if you want to pay even more for a WiFi pellet grill (that doesn’t work) buy a Traeger. But if you want to save money, get more, and have a WiFi grill that works, don’t buy a Traeger.

    The new WiFire app doesn't have custom cooks "within" the app, this was very useful. No need to Learn From the Pros: Detailed videos featuring recipes and tips & tricks-keep those on the website, not the app. • Over 1500 Recipes: Access amazing wood-fired recipes that cover everything from BBQ to baked goods,make the recipes modifiable (temps,timers,probe).useless recipe when we can't customize it.
  • Does not work as advertised Jul 22, 2020

    By Mad in tn
    Terrible product and support. They don’t stand behind the product. I bought the grill specifically for the WiFi feature and the grill does not work as advertised. The WiFi does not work. They treat me as though I am the problem and they don’t seem to stand behind the product or warranty. I called tech support several times. I was cut off several times. They had me do the same trouble shooting steps over and over and over with the same results of the WiFi not working. I can delete the app and reload it just so many times before it becomes a statement of insanity. I did everything they told me yet it won’t work and they refuse to replace the interface. Then I was told that it will be an undefined period of time before any updates are available since the software version I have is old. This tells me that the WiFi never worked since the old software is the problem??? I could have saved the extra money I spent with a smoker that’s manual since that’s how I’m having to use this smoker. I’m fact I was told to just use it manually by tech support. It was a constant effort of deflection by tech support as though it wasn’t the grills failure. I hope I can get my money back from the store.

  • What the heck did you do to the app?? Apr 20, 2020

    By Sweetshook
    You guys took a perfectly well running and full featured application and turned it into nothing more than a collection of how to videos. You’ve taken away the ability to customize your own specialty cooks from within the app. What’s more disturbing is that when I called Traeger customer service today, the girl I spoke with hadn’t a clue. She said she searched high and low for this same complaint for another customer to learn that feature had been removed. She also mentioned that she wasn’t aware that the old app gave you the ability to customize your cook settings. WOW! Talk about not knowing your products. You also jacked up the current recipes. It gives you a total prep time using the cook cycle to combine those two times and gives you nothing more than a time frame. It doesn’t specify how long at what temp. And if you have a cook where you want to smoke for two hours, then bump up the temp to finish it off, you have no way of knowing the duration of the smoke time vs the total time. I mean what a joke! And don’t get me started on the recipe changes. Ingredients for common recipes are gone. I’m perplexed to say the least. I have an 1850 dollar Timberline that I loved to use and now I’m wishing I’d kept my Big Green Egg. I was considering buying the new Timberline with the D2 and pellet sensor, but there’s no way. Your staff is clueless and you put zero thought into this garbage app.
