Sounds like the kinda luck I have. At least you have options.I am doing a Prime Rib, I will be cooking it on my Yoder not my Pit Boss as I am back to the original controller due to the Rec-Tec controller was damage by myself as I was moving my flat trailer and I swung it into the grill right at the hopper. Notice that the corner of the trailer smashed the LCD screen and it does not work anymore.
I am going to buy a SmokeDaddy controller without the WiFi after the holidays since I have never tried his before so this is a good excuse to get one now.
They send two meat probes with the unit. The first one I used but the dust on my second cook. Now I noticed my second one is off by 20 degrees. I also use an external handheld meat probe to check against the factory probe. Now I’m pissed. Temp hasn’t held worth a shit all night. Had it set for 250 but it never got over 210. Looks like Pit Boss is getting a displeased customer email this morning.Got my Christmas bird on around 6:20 EST, a 15 pounder. Took 1/2 hour from startup to get to 250. 11 degrees here in Indiana with a -3 wind chill so not too bad for a big Lockhart!. Chugging along at between 240-250.
SmokeIT app appears to be working well now. Seems they added a few things since I used it last. The "Tools" icon lets you turn on notifications, a timer can be set, and target temps can be set for each of the 4 meat probe sensors. Now if they could allow a minimum temp to be set in case of a mechanical/electrical failure, that would help a lot!
Merry Christmas All!
Guess I’ll eat some crow.... turned out with maybe too big of a smoke ring lol...Surely it’s smoking. But if you are use to smoking on a stick burner, it’s definitely not the same. Your not going to get that heavy smoke. It’s very faint, at least in mine it is. From time to time I’ll see a heavy puff of smoke but not very often. Hope it turns out for you. It’s 4:30 am now, mine has been on for about 8 hours. Turned the temperature to 350 and about to wrap it. Forgot to post a pre cooked photo. Before I trimmed it. Got it seasoned.
