Pre-Pairing Checklist

  • Download the Traeger app
    • TXM probes will not pair with the MEATER app
  • Turn on the grill
    • TXM probes are compatible only with our touchscreen models (Ironwood, Ironwood XL, Timberline, and Timberline XL)
  • Connect AAA battery to charging dock
  • Allow probes to charge for at least 4 hours
  • Grill does not need to be connected to WiFi to pair TXM probe (they connect via Bluetooth)

How to Pair Your TXM Wireless Probes

To pair your TXM Bluetooth wireless meat probe, follow these steps:

  1. If this is your first time using your TXM, connect the battery by removing the battery cover on the back of the charging case. Pull the tab protecting the battery to allow the battery to make contact.
  2. Allow the probe to charge for 4 hours. The green light on the dock indicates available battery life.
  3. Remove one of the probes from the charging dock to turn it on.
    • Only remove probes from the charging dock one at a time when pairing. If you remove both at the same time, the grill will detect multiple Bluetooth signals and produce an error saying, Error Multiple Probes Detected.

  4. Turn on the grill and make sure the probe is near the grill. A popup should appear on the display of the controller that says, Traeger Wireless Probe Detected. Would you like to pair the probe to your grill? Select, Yes, Pair This Device.
  5. Select a probe number to identify which probe you are pairing.

    • Your probe will come with numbered, metal clips. Attach the numbered clip associated with the numbered probe you selected on the display.
  6. Probe pairing should be successful. You may either go to the probe or pair another device.
    • Return the paired probe back to the charging dock before attempting to pair an additional TXM probe. 

ERROR: Multiple Probes Detected

If you get an error saying, Error Multiple Probes Detected, the grill has found multiple Bluetooth devices that it recognizes as Traeger X MEATER Bluetooth wireless probes. Return any TXM probes back to the charging dock and try again removing only one probe during each pairing attempt.
