Hello everyone! Glad to be a part of this group, a lot of good information here! Hopefully I can get some insight on my issue. I just purchased my first Pit Boss grill, I bought the Laredo 1000. I fired it up for the first time over the weekend and at first everything went well. Then about 8 hours in to smoking a shoulder it stopped and shot me an ERR MESSAGE and the igniter icon started flashing. I shut it down, refired it and was good for another hour or so… then it did it again. This time I took the bottom grates and lower covers off and did a quick clean out around the igniter. Fired it up again and it lasted about another hour and stopped again. I had to do this quite a few times until the shoulder reached optimal temp and was finally finished. Needless to say, this was a huge pain in the ass. It seems that the igniter would shut down when there got to be some ash build up from the pellets and I would have to go in and clean out around it. Is anyone else having this issue? I am using Pit Boss pellets.
