Congrats Russ👍 Traeger on cheers 🥃
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

Turn that traeger up. It will grill. Get it to 600 and it will sear burgers or a steak.
. Mine has never got above 390😢

There are thermostat set  settings behind the thermostat.
You may want to research what I am referring too. 
Traeger does a poor job communicating info on setting up for ambient temps for different regions.

Lining the bottom with fireplace brick is a good full mod.  Light weight and adds multiple heating benefits.

This is the P setting for the smoke setting.   Doesn't increase your high end temp only ther temp in the smoke setting.   Max is about 220 from what I have seen on forums.

You folks in Western Wa need to pay attention to your humidity.  Us in a more arid climate not so much.  Even the slightest bit of humidity in the pellets has a drastic affect on the temperature.  So does a poor grade of pellet.

Leaving the pellets in your pellet box on the side of the Traeger in your humid climate will not work well.

From the Traeger Website:

What is the P-setting?

The P-setting can be used to affect all the temperatures of the grill except the “high” setting. If you set your grill to 225 degrees, the internal temperature probe tells the controller to run the auger until the desired temperature (225 in this case) is reached. Once the desired temperature is reached, the grill defaults back to its P-setting logic until it hits two degrees below the desired temp (223 degrees in this example). At this point, the internal thermometer (RTD) kicks back in to gear and the cycle continues. In essence, P-settings directly affect your grill on the “smoke” setting, and indirectly effect your grill on all others up to “high”.

So a higher p setting in smoke is going to give you a higher overall temp in regular settings?

My Camp chef will smoke 150-160 degrees or high smoke is 175-190 degree.  Also it will reach 500 degree and cook steak well.  Love it.  Low smoke setting makes great jerky and fish smokes well as well.

Harbor freight welding blanket works as an insulated blanket. Way cheaper too.

So ribs go on today for the first time.   Got company up from California.  Girls went to the airport to pick up wife's mom.   So ther were hungry.   Bag some cheap Redbaron pizza.  Fired up Traeger and through them on.   Wow made those pizzas taste pretty darn good.
