    So when it starts to get cold...I don't keep any pellets in the hopper. That fixes the issue. It has to do something with the weight of the pellets on the auger when it's cold.

    I start the Traeger up with about 2" of pellets I the hopper....once it gets going I fill it halfway and monitor. No longer having any issues.
    Yes, exactly. It is only a cold weather problem for me.

    Interesting. I almost always scoop all the pellets out of the hopper after a cook, so that if I want to use different pellets on a subsequent cook, it's easy, and I don't have to remember what's already in there. I basically don't have anything in the hopper - just what's already in the auger - when I start up the smoker.

    I cooked a couple of pork shoulders Saturday night, and the smoker didn't squeal when I started it up this time. So it comes and goes.
