Hope yours works better than mine. Heats have never been close to right , have maybe been able to cook no more than a dozen times. controller has been replaced 4 times and temp probe 3 times. This grill has been a disappointment to me. Seems that when controller is changed you can cook for 4 or 5 times, then the heats are allover the place. I use my old charcoal smoker more than the Pit Boss, Sure could have bought a new charcoal smoker and a lot of charcoal. But maybe yours will give you better service.
