Default Traeger flavor issue (Was: Traeger Grill Temperature Problem)

IIRC, Traegers can go quite high, using either the middle or high
setting on the 3-way switch.
From Traeger's site:
SETTING TEMP AUGER TIMING PELLET CONSUMPTION
High 425 - 450 F Always On 2 lbs/hr
Medium 300 - 325 F On 2 Min, Off 2 1 lb/hr
Smoke 180 - 220 F On 1 Min, Off 3 1/2 lb/hr

Be interesting to see how chicken came out at either of the higher
temps.


OK, that on/off cycle may contribute to the "lumber" smell. It may not get
hot enough for a clean burn of the pellets. Just like using wood that
smolders.
