Hi,
When I set my Pit Boss to smoke mode (p4) the temperature never goes below 300*. All of the other temperature settings work perfectly. Anyone have any idea what is going on with it?

The P4 setting should never ever go above 300. So there is a issue with your controller and for adjusting the P setting is not going to help as the P4 should keep you well below 300.

I would open a case with Pit Boss/

Thanks, Dave! I was thinking that the temperature was way too high. I will look at opening a case or buying a controller

If you have the budget for $200 I recommend buying a Svannah Stoker controller it is worth it. I have no idea why Pit Boss does not offer a PID controller for Pro Series, Austin, Navigator, and Sportsman grills.

I think I'll be going with a Heater Meter. It will be in a while, after I've figured out some of these things.
