Like all Traeger grills, the Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill is an incredibly well thought out piece of kit. This is an intelligent, highly user-friendly grill and smoker designed to take away all of the guesswork from outdoor cooking as well as doing away with the need to constantly babysit whatever dish you’re creating.
A SMOKER DESIGNED FOR PERFECT SMOKY FLAVORS
The Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill is first and foremost a smoker. Unlike the PRO models with their distinctive flue pipes, the Ironwood features a unique downdraught exhaust system at the rear of the grill that further enhances the vortex of indirect cooking heat and maximizes the food’s exposure to smoke that Traeger barrel grills are famous for. If you love the smoky flavors that wood-fired cooking gives food, then the Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill, with its push of a button speedy Super Smoke mode, is definitely worthy of your consideration.
The Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill Super Smoke technology delivers a consistent supply of precise heat and subtle blue smoke that’s perfect for delicately smoking meat and fish and anything else you fancy, without creating the bitterness and acrid taste that bad smoking or over smoking can cause. Smoking, especially with Traeger’s choice of six subtle hardwood flavors, will deliver an extra dimension to your outdoor cooking that you won’t get from ordinary grills.
TECHNOLOGY AND FEATURES THAT YOU ONLY GET WITH A TRAEGER
The Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill, just like every other Traeger product, has been built to last. Its robust construction and rock-solid sawhorse chassis ensure durability. The grill also features an industry-first longer-lasting brushless PRO D2 Direct Drive controller, which helps maintain consistent temperatures. The controller incorporates a variable speed fan and auger to deliver the correct amount of pellets, producing precise levels of heat and optimal smoke.
With Wifire technology, the Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill can be connected to the Traeger App, which you can download to your smartphone or smart device. This enables comprehensive remote control of every aspect of the grill’s performance. The app provides access to an extensive catalog of 1,600 recipes and allows you to set the correct cooking program for those recipes, letting your grill handle it all automatically. The app also offers grilling tips, how-to videos, and sends notifications when the grill requires cleaning or servicing. If desired, you can manually enter your own desired temperatures and timings using the easy-to-use control panel. Additionally, the grill has a pellet sensor that can alert you remotely when it’s time to refill the hopper, which is especially useful for long days of low and slow cooking.
ALL THE GRILL CAPACITY YOU COULD EVER NEED
Within the Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill are two large easy clean porcelain-coated steel grill grates. The main lower grate (762 x 482mm) can be placed in two positions, allowing for optimal searing. The smaller upper grate (762 x 266mm) can be removed to accommodate large meat joints, turkeys, or even a generous-sized hotpot. The grill also features a ‘keep warm’ function that maintains a consistent temperature of approximately 75ºC, allowing you to pause cooking or prepare food in advance. The stainless steel side shelf with utensil hooks and optional full-width drop-down front shelf enhance the grill’s convenience and practicality.
The Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill not only allows grilling and smoking but also allows you to barbecue, bake, baste, braise, and roast. It can even make great pizzas. The Turbo Temp feature ensures that your food cooks and smokes evenly, regardless of its placement on the grill grates. Additionally, it quickly brings the grill back up to temperature if you need to open the lid to check on the food or add other items like vegetables.
If you’re cooking meat, you don’t have to open the lid to check its temperature. The Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill features an integrated meat temperature probe with its own port for easy insertion. This allows you to monitor the internal temperature of your meat without any hassle.
The grill uses indirect heat for cooking and has a drip tray that channels grease and cooking juice to an external grease bucket for easy disposal. Since there is no direct access to the flame, you won’t have to worry about nasty flare-ups that can ruin your food and pose a safety risk.
With its intelligent design, precise temperature control, extensive features, and versatile cooking capabilities, the Traeger Ironwood 885 Pellet Grill is a top-of-the-line option for outdoor cooking enthusiasts. Whether you’re a seasoned pitmaster or a beginner, this grill will enhance your cooking experience and help you achieve delicious, smoky flavors with ease.
