Man of Mastery LLC has chosen Traeger Wood-Fired Grills as the official grill brand of the Man of Mastery community.

Every man needs a strong backyard grill game, right?!

Father’s Day is coming up and my son has really been wanting to pry me away from that old, broken down gas grill. We went looking for a best-in-class backyard grill, not only for me but to be able to recommend to the Man of Mastery community. I’m excited to announce that we’ve entered into a partner affiliation with Traeger Wood-Fired Grills, effectively immediately, and have chosen to order the Ironwood 885!

Traeger invented the original wood-fired grill over 30 years ago in Mt. Angel, Oregon and continues to lead the industry as the world’s #1 selling wood-fired grill.


Admittedly, the best thing about a gas grill is the speed and convenience, but temperature is hard to dial in with accuracy and consistency, whether it’s high temp searing or a low-and-slow cook. Half the time I’d end up using the gas stove and a cast iron skillet instead. And, for smoking ribs or pork shoulder there’s a completely separate electric smoker taking up space on the patio (gathering dust)!

As far as taste…well, at least it’s meat and not a manufactured unbelievable burger. But in truth, buddies who cook over coal or natural wood have always had a huge edge.

I felt stuck, wanting convenience and not wanting to add yet another piece of equipment (charcoal grill) or two (how cool would a wood fired pizza oven be?!).

Traeger looks to solve everything I want in one place. They advertise that the design’s 6-in-1 versatility allows you to grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise and BBQ with dependable fire and smoke for consistent results and perfectly cooked food, every single time. I’ve ordered up this beauty – the Ironwood 885 – to find out myself!

Father’s Day 2021

For a limited time in celebration of Father’s Day 2021, Traeger is offering their $150 Ultimate Grill Bundle for FREE with the Ironwood 885 and several other models. That includes three of their rubs, two varieties of their premium wood pellets and a full-length grill cover to protect against the elements (well…basically the sun here!).

I will report back on how it goes and would love to hear from others on their grilling and smoking!
