You guys have no idea how much you helped this new Pit Boss owner! I was losing my mind trying to figure out what's wrong until I went through a few threads and someone posted a picture of their fire box being overflown with pellets and someone said to switch the auger and the fan cords and VOILA it worked. It holds a temp perfectly now. I'm dirty as hell just finished doing it and setting my grill to 200 and it worked like new. No more huge clouds of smoke, no more heavy soot build up and no more stress. Thanks again!
