Hello everyone. Just purchased a JB this past weekend and will be seasoning with a pound of bacon tomorrow morning and smoking some spares in the afternoon. A couple questions: 1. How are JB owners positioning the heat shields? The manual says that the JB only has one shield but mine came with both. Did a test with my dual probe Mavrick during the 400 degree burn. Left side was right at 400 but right side was consistently 50 higher. Did a second test tonight at 180 and moving the right shield about 1.5 inches from the center one and temps were 15 higher on right side. Thoughts? 2. This will be my first cook using a pellet grill. Thought I would start at 180 for 2 hours and then up to 250 after that. I usually do the 3-2-1 method but not sure how that correlates with pellet smoking. Any help would be appreciate and I'll post some Q-vue tomorrow.
