Hmm. ok maybe it does 200,225 then 250. i only tried 250- 300+. I will give it a shot.Hmmmm. I do not know, I thought these new PID controllers would adjust by 5 degrees. You might want to give them a call and ask. My older PB grill has Smoke, 200, 225, 250 and then goes up in 50 degree increments but my vertical Pit Boss does 25.
If it does use 50 degrees that is a bit disappointing.
The 5 is actually a S for smoke. I tried and all it does is maintain a lower temp. 165 ish to 225 with no Smoke Density Control. I would like Pit Boss to explain that!!!Actually my 850 temp starts with 5 degrees. then 200. What would 5 degrees be for? I bought mine as well after reading (or being led to believe) that the PID controller was infinitely adjustable... Why on earth would we be limited to 5, 200, 225, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450 and HI with a digital controller? and no 275?!
no cover for this one yet.. I had to improvise for now.Oh yeah, and if you like the grill and decide to keep it be sure to register it at the website and they will email you a $25 coupon. I don't know if there are covers for this model or not yet but someone here bought the cover for the Austin XL and said it works perfect.
