First smoke was Sunday October 1, when we made beef short ribs on our Timberline 850.
Traeger has made a few teaks to the Timberline since they first released it in March. I’ll get into the tweaks in a future post, but the most important
one is that they have cleaned up the software so the wi-fi works better. Production bottlenecks have also been cleaned up so more grills will be available.
Now, as for the short ribs….
I loaded the Timberline 850 with Cherry pellets, set the Timberline at 225F and then let them cook for 5 hours. At the 3rd hour I wrapped each short rib in foil, a technique I have never employed with ribs. The results were excellent – incredibly moist and loaded with tons of flavor thanks to the sinfully marbled interior. These were the best beef ribs I have ever smoked.
