PID controller looks interesting, but I cannot wait till I see more about it. Did he say the price and my Lowes say they will not have it until Spring time.
They are not in Tennessee yet and I just tried to order one from Fresno, CA. and have it sent to my Lowes here in Nashville. They will not ship store to store on this product even knowing someone in Lowes Corp could not help me.
It looks like the West Coast is going to be the ones getting them. Let us know how it goes and let us know if you are getting the sudden temp change as some people are saying. Some are claiming they set the temp at 225 and then they check the app and the temp change to 325 on it's own. It is jumping 100 degrees after 30 minutes on it own.
Also let us know how long it takes to reach temp you set it at for example if you set it to 250. How much time does it take to reach 250 as two owners are stating that it takes about 30 minutes to reach your set temp. For PID controller that is crazy it should not take that long, my Yoder if you set it to 250 it reaches 250 within 10 minutes.
I noticed during the warm up process it it must complete the process of heating up to 350 and then you can adjust it down from there.
I’m smoking a brisket over the Veterans Day holiday and will report back.
that is insane so it is telling you to warm it up to 350 and then set your temp. You are using a PID controller you do not have to warm up your grill....Pit Boss needs to learn about PID controllers.
You know the truth is, I would have been pleased with the 850. And had Lowe’s not worked with me on the 1150, I would have bought the 850. At that point, I was tired of the run a round. But to your point about the controller, I’m not a big tech guy to start with. I would have been just fine with the older style. I will never probably ever use all the features of this thing. I’m kinda ole school, like to stand around the pit, drink a beer, open the lid kinda guy. Been doing it that way for years. This is the first time I’ve ever had meat probes. I’m excited about that. So this is going to be a learning curve for me. I think I forgot to mention when I ended my story last night. The whole point of the story was to say thank you. So far the web site has been helpful and easy to navigate. And just the tips alone on where to buy items are worth it in itself. So, thanks again. Otherwise, I would have probably paid full price for a pit that I didn’t want to begin with.Hey, that's a nice pick up for 472! Keep in mind there may be issues with the temp controller when trying to maintain 225. I think someone here in another thread (several people) have pointed out that at 225 and 250 it will run at 300.
