The wifi-enabled Traeger Timberline 1300 is a seriously capable pellet fired barbecue and smoker and is one of the largest outdoor grills you can buy anywhere. With its three tier heavy duty stainless steel shelves it will easily swallow up to 60 burgers in one go and cook each one of them evenly. But it deserves much better than that, so if you prefer it can easily handle 12 chickens or 8 low and slow Briskets and just about anything else you fancy. Plus, because of its incredible Super Smoke Mode, everything you cook will be infused with that subtle wood-fired flavour that you only get from the best quality smoke. Add in speedy unshakable temperature control for intelligent hands-off cooking and It simply doesn't get any better (or bigger) than the Traeger Timberline 1300.
At The Stove Yard when we first clapped eyes on the Traeger Timberline 1300 we thought we'd be hard-pushed to sell an outdoor grill on this scale. However – surprise, surprise, since we displayed the Traeger Timberline 1300 in our County Down showroom we've found that there really are some seriously dedicated grill fans out there who wish to take their barbecuing to the max. When it comes to producing feast-like quantities of restaurant quality food with the minimum of effort they've discovered that there's really no other choice than the Timberline 1300.
With its precisely controlled, consistent and evenly spread temperatures The Traeger Timberline 1300 can barbecue, grill, sear, roast, braise or bake, and with the extra height you get when one or two of the shelves are removed, you can also cook in a large pot while continuing to grill. The huge 11kg (24lb) pellet hopper with its pellet level sensor lets you cook even slower and longer than you ever though possible without ever having to worry about running out of fuel (unlike gas). There's even a 75ºC keep warm mode to delay cooking or to keep food ready to serve when guests arrive.
Traeger's D2 Direct Drive drivetrain with the Turbo Temp function not only delivers better quality smoke with more power and flavour but importantly also ensures that the grill gets hotter faster when you need it to. For example, lost heat is quickly replenished whenever the lid is opened and closed. This also makes it exceptionally good for quickly boosting the temperature when reverse searing on the lower shelf.
Traeger have perfected exactly how to infuse your food with the correct amount of deliciously delicate smoky wood-fired flavours (there's six to choose from including apple, cherry and maple) by creating a continuous flow of the subtle blue smoke at the precise temperature tailored to deliver all of the the desired taste without the bitterness sometimes associated with wood smoke and that can sometimes ruin food. This is all down to the Timberline 1300's patented Super Smoke Mode which brings home-smoking to a whole other level. At the press of a button its variable speed fan and Traeger's Downdraft Exhaust System will produce a vortex of heat and smoke under the barrel-shaped lid to uniformly bathe each of the three grill areas in finely tuned smoke before exiting at the rear of the grill (unlike on the PRO series there's no chimney on the Timberline). You can press the Super Smoke button at any time during cooking as long as the grill temperature is between approximately 75ºC and 107ºC.
Family and friends barbecues can be fun, but not so much if you're the poor old renominated cook. This can often be a full-time job baby-sitting the barbecue until everyone's been fed. They also get to miss out on most of the fun and the craic. Not any more, all thanks to Traeger's sophisticated user-friendly WiFire connectivity and their unique Traeger App with Traeger’s GrillGuide which allows you to put your cooking on auto-pilot while you get on doing other things.
Simply choose the recipe you want from the App and download it to your grill and the Traeger D2 Controller will automatically do the rest to deliver the precise consistent temperature needed to make mouth-watering dishes every time. Since the grill uses convection heat to cook any potential nasty fat flare-ups that can ruin your food are eliminated. Safety is also further enhanced by the fat being continuously drained away to a concealed vessel for later safe and easy disposal. This also make cleaning up after you've cooked incredibly easy too.

The Traeger Timberline 1300 features three tiers of 863mm (34") long heavy duty adjustable and removable stainless steel racks to provide you with a whopping 9.3 square feet of grilling space. Remember with Traeger's combination of D2 Direct Drive, TurboTemp and and Tru Convection System you get precise fast and even temperature wherever you place your food whether its 12 whole chickens of 14 racks of ribs. The Timberline's dual position lower shelf can be also used in the bottom position for fast and easy searing. Shelves can be removed to accommodate larger food like turkey or cook-in-the-pot dishes for example.
With the Timberline 1300 you also get a good sized left hand side stainless steel shelf with three handy utensil hooks as well as a matching stainless steel front 'bumper' shelf as standard. There's also a handsome bamboo cutting board with magnetic base for attaching to the lid of the large 11kg pellet hopper for extra prep' space. This will stay in place if you have to open the hopper lid for refilling. Incidentally, the hopper has a pellet level sensor warning so you'll have plenty of notice to remove any food or tools from the cutting board to allow you to do this.
The large barrel-shaped grill is securely attached to four 75mm (3") diameter heavy duty powder coated tubular steel legs, splayed saw bench style for rock-solid stability and to evenly distribute the top heavy weight. On the right hand side there is a pair of large 175mm (7") diameter rubber wheels and on the other side a pair of smaller 75mm (3") lockable and steerable rubber wheels to make rolling and positioning the Timberline's 17 stone (108kg) much easier than you could ever imagine. There's a handy hook at the rear to keep the power cable safely out of the way and an optional all-weather cover for total protection if decide to leave the grill outdoors.
Traeger Timberlines are regularly described as being built like tanks and that's probably not too far off the mark when the construction quality is considered and especially compared to other makes – but for one exception: Traegers are so much better looking. Every aspect of the Traeger Timberline 1300's build quality is first class and its superior components are made to last as long as possible. Detail is everything and there isn't a sharp edge anywhere on any of their premium steel bodywork.
Double insulated powder coated steel walls, as well as on the well-balanced lid with its all round air-tight seal, ensure superior heat retention and less time taken to reach the desired temperatures – even on the bitterest days. This also means less fuel is used. Comprehensive stainless steel inner lining and stainless steel drip tray make for durable easy to clean surfaces. The hard-wearing variable speed fan, with the industry's first brushless motor, along with the resilient one-piece auger and the quality metal control knobs are just some of the premium features that truly make the difference when it comes to owning a Traeger Timberline.
NB When all-weather cooking outdoors you must ensure that the safe operation of the grill and its power cable cannot be compromised by rain or snow.
