Among many issues with this grill, my controller does not work correctly. If I set to 225 it will maintain 190 and if I set to 250 it will maintain 200. It never really attempts to reach the set temp nor does it ever get there. This is of course after pre heating the gril to 350+ and cooking in all weather conditions (wind/no wind/hot/cold). I've read that this is common problem for which pit boss will replace the controller with a newer one with newer firmware. How can I go about requesting and receiving a newer replacement controller?

Call Pit Boss support, they are very helpful.
Tell them what your problems are, and they should offer to send you out a new controller.
It sounds exactly like the problems mine had when it was new.

Can u really set it to 250? Mines either 240 or 260. I have about a 20-25 degree lower temp difference from the controller temp.
