Traeger Timberline 1300 Wi-Fi Wood Pellet Grill Overview

Step up significantly your grill game with the Traeger Timberline 1300. Grill as much food as you want, while enjoying the versatility this pellet grill provides. It features 1300 square inches of cooking area, which is located over three tiers of dual-position cooking grids built from stainless steel.

The bottom cooking grate can be either raised for grilling or be lowered for searing your perfect juicy steaks.

You can cook up to 38 burgers, 54 hot dogs, 6 chickens or 9 rib racks much faster with smokier flavor than ever due to both systems – the TRU Convection system and Traeger Downdraft Exhaust system. The fresh blue smoke circulates fully within the grill, using a built-in induction fan.

Maintaining heat is not an issue thanks to the airtight lid gasket and the double-walled 304 stainless steel interior that create unbeatable temperature control, ranging from 165 to 500 degrees F.

The innovative Timberline D2 Controller gives you full command with its navigation dial and dedicated buttons. It allows you to create custom cook cycles and quick access to many useful functions like Super Smoke Mode or Keep Warm Mode. You can easily amp up the flavor with just the push of a button.

The controller works in tandem with the brand-new D2 Direct Drive. The Traeger D2 Direct Drive definitely takes grilling to a whole other level due to its dynamic drivetrain, which delivers more flavor and more power than we have ever witnessed before. Within the D2 Direct Drive, you can find an industry-first brushless motor, which powers the single-piece auger, indicating its longevity.

An intense wood-fired flavor is ensured thanks to the variable speed fan that always keeps your flame at the optimal intensity and produces all the needed amount of smoke.

Due to the Turbotemp feature, the Traeger Timberline 1300 ignites and heats up quicker than ever.

You can change temperature with ease, set desired timers and access thousands of recipes using the Traeger app with the WiFIRE controller, which is available for both Android and iOS devices. The controller is compatible with Google Home and Amazon Alexa enabled devices. The WiFIRE controller helps you monitor and control all your grilling temperatures, monitor the internal temperature of your food and even create alerts using voice commands.

The included meat probe stores above the control panel, where you have quick and easy access to them. You can easily connect them to a desired dedicated control panel port for accurate monitoring.

Storage is not an issue as well thanks to the stainless steel side shelf, which comes with BBQ tool hooks. Above the pellet hopper, you will find an amazing bamboo cutting board and a full-length stainless steel front shelf.

The extra-large capacity pellet hopper, which holds up to 24 pounds of hardwood pellets, will keep your fire burning. The integrated pellet sensor within the hopper allows you to monitor the track of fuel levels by using the Traeger app. It even alerts you when the hopper begins to run low.

With the hopper clean-out door, you can quickly empty contents for cleaning and swapping out flavors with ease. Another feature that makes cleaning as easier as possible is the concealed grease pan, which slides out.

The Traeger Timberline 1300 has all-terrain wheels and heavy-duty locking casters for maximum portability.
