This is my 3rd PBV4PS2 (2 were defective)
I did primed the auger with a 50/50 mix of PB Competition Blend and PB Charcoal
Set initial temp at 350 for 45 min after reaching temp
Dropped temp to 250 for 20 min then normal cool down.

I had previously talked to PB support about taking the flame dampener out for cleaning.
They were OK with it but put it back in before using.

Am I glad I did ! ! !

The ash is everywhere, and would be on the meat, if it were in their

It doesn't say anything in the manual about taking the 4 screws out and removing it for cleaning.
Apparently PB service isn't aware of it

Is this amount of ash normal???? SEE PICTURES

Yeah, looks normal to me. Mine does about the same but the heat deflector and water pan will block it. I usually clean it before the next use (and not after using in case some of it is hot).
