Made the jump from Weber Smokey Mountain smoker to Pit Boss. So far I am unimpressed. Nothing but issues particularly with temperature. Slow to get to temperature on start up, temperature in the barrel clearly not was hot as it indicates during cooking and the hottest I could get it was an indicated 375 when set at 400. It's like the auger has one speed. Anyway, I hope the company makes this right but from the forums I doubt it.
