This is very helpful to know. Thank you.I use an extension cord on mine but it is only a 6 foot cord. I believe 25 feet or over are too long (I called Pit Boss one time and asked then I let one run for about a half hour using a 50 foot cord. No problems, but I did not want to risk using a long one and it cut out in the middle of a cook).
Ours shuts off because of the poor hopper design. We have to try and pile Pellets over the feed area because the hopper needed to be designed with a steep grade at the bottom to assist in feeding Pellets. I had heard that pitboss was really good about replacing faulty components but I'm finding this morning that maybe I won't even be able to contact them. We have had our grill for 4 years and it's caught fire a few times as a result from it shutting off. I think we will look for a different brand for replacement. We Cook brisket often and it's been too many times where we cant depend on the grill to stay on all night.This is very helpful to know. Thank you.
