Just purchased and attempted to do the burn in. I have two separate temp probes in addition to the one that came with the smoker. On the first run, with the smoker set to 350, the all probes event to over 400, the smoker temp probe Never went above 300. This was over an hour period.

I’ve tried a few different temps since, cleaned out the burner a few times in between. At 220, the probes were all saying ~255.

New bag of lumber Jack pellets. 57 degrees out.

Seems like the controller is reading low.

Any thoughts for me to try? Anyone else have issues with such a wide fave between temp readings (usually I see the box being higher than the meat probe)
Welcome. Pit Boss probes are known to off by 50 deg, but also the controller needs to learn after a few smokes/uses.
Always can call Pit Boss Tech support 877 303 3134 option 2, their open 7 days a week.
