When I start my Pitboss, it wants to start at 350 degrees and I have to turn it down to 180 for smoke mode. I heard that the default start up temp setting is 180 degrees. My Pitboss works just fine other than that. Do I need to reset something?

No sir.. on your model the controller algorithm is programmed to do an automatic preheat to 350°.

As is sometimes said, RTFM. My manual duscribes how to change the start temperature from the default 350°F to whatever you want. If your controller has this capability, I can't say. My 6 series vertical Lowes model has the ability.

Try downloading your manual and word searching for the key words if reading the print version isn't finding it.

I don't know how you know what model one has. I don't get the model to show up anywhere. On my 850 I always shut it down atc180 and it starts the same. I was thinking it starts wherever you shut it down at.
