    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    Definitely agree that it is a very well built cabinet (although I do wish the pellet clean out was on the bottom more. a lot of pellets get left in there if you use it). Ultimately though, if pitboss gets the controller issues figured out this is going to be a VERY hard to beat vertical smoker...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    The whole set it and forget it was the big reason why I wanted this one and ultimately ended up returning it. That was one of the big pushes to vertical from all my research. I don't mind adding water occasionally or some other small start up procedures that you do and then you are done until...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    There is a MP/Prime button on the controller, you can press it to prime. This is stated in the manual. Same process to prime the auger for the first time.

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    My suggestion, until Pitboss gets the controller issues worked out (for any of the pro series), this item is a no go for me personally. I'd return it (as I did) and look for something else. I went to a camp chef smoke pro sg with wifi. 10 different smoke settings, 5 degree temp increments all...

    Deciding which grill to buy

    Camp chef smokepro sg 24. I got mine at CAL ranch store for $550. 10 different smoke settings, 5 degree temp changes throughout the entire range (160-500), Bluetooth and wifi that work. Firmware updates via app, no need to send in. Same controller used across the entire brand. Still has the...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    Hopefully it all works out for you all. I tried start up so many times with so many temps (including high, 450, 350, etc) and then some more based on tech support suggestions. I wasted way too many pellets trying to get that thing to work. I was very hopeful and still think besides the...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    Apparently lowes deleted my bad review of this smoker updating my first review (I am Jacob). Shows only 1 review now on my end: https://www.lowes.com/pd/Pit-Boss-Pit-Boss-Pro-Series-4-Series-Vertical-Smoker/5001563923 But I posted a 1 star review saying don't buy yet due to temperature issues...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    Good to know mine wasn't the only two with this issue and not just my local ones, although NM is semi close still, but I doubt they would be from the same shipment. I really did have such high hopes for this, but to heat up to 305 after 67 minutes is ridiculous. It seems like pitboss rushed all...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    Here was the engineering departments response about the issue. This doesn't fix the issue. Even pre-heating it at 350 still takes an hour. I have already done basically 3 burn offs trying to figure this issue out. This isn't the "set it and forget" smoker either. If I have to do this much work...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    It definitely checked all of my boxes from a technical stand point and from a looks standpoint. It really does look really nice and well built. I was really hoping to use it as a smoker and as an outdoor oven since it got up to 450. Hopefully tech support will email me telling this will fix it...

    Pit Boss Pro Series 4 V2 PBV4PS2

    Hey all Purchased a pitboss pro series 4 v2 with wifi, bluetooth, and pid control. I was so excited for this because I was waiting for the brunswick forever to be available. Well, I exchanged the first one because I thought it was defective only to have the same issue with the second. It...
