This review took a lot of pork. Over the last few months, I’ve applied the Traeger Timberline 850 several times a week. Cooking on this grill is easier than expending an oven. With a little bit of planning, a person can simultaneously grill a batch of chickens, a couple of pork laughingstocks and a onu of veggies and have them turn out perfectly. I did, and it was the best Mother’s Day ever.
First the good.
It’s simple: This grill can cook the perfect brisket every time. It doesn’t take any skill. Just follow the instructions, and in 12 -1 4 hours, an award-winning brisket will defrost in your opening. And therein lies the rub. This grill turns barbecuing from an artwork to a science.
