  • Re: Temperature Control

    Thats the part that requires some trial and error.  If you are going a low temp cook, I'd say within 5 minutes of lighting I have the top closed.  You really only need a couple of them going to get started.  Then it will very slowly heat up.  

    If I am cooking at 700 degrees, let it burn for a while open then when I close the lid the temps shoot up super fast.
  • Re: Fixing thermometer

    Take it out of the grill look on the back of the thermo, there is a hex nut that you can put a wrench on then turn the face of the thermo to recalibrate it.  Just boil some water in a pan and set the thermo to read approx 212 degrees while in the water, but careful not to touch the sides or bottom of the pan.
