Hello there BBQ nation. needing a little help. I own a Green Mtn. Davy Crockett Grill. Been having a temp. issue with it. Trying to figure out if it is the Cold, The pellets, the burner or what the heck it is. I've grilled a few times not in 20' and 30' degree weather and my temp gauge says is not even close to what the setting is.
This is what I've tried to trouble shoot with the grill.
1.) I have cleaned out the Hopper, the burner, and the bottom of the grill. I fount that there where a lot of un-burned saw dust particles in the burner.
2.) There was moisture in the hopper and Saw Dust in the bottom of the hopper.
3.) Cleaned the Temp. Sensor off and made sure the plates where not touching the sensor.
4.) Bought a Welders blanket to put over the top of the grill hoping it would keep the grill hotter.
When the grill goes through its start up cycle the temp. normally reads around 150, Its reads 30-40 now. I can crank the grill up to 400 and it will only read 280-290 degrees. So I guess I wanting to know is it a hopper issue or a sensor issue. I do get a lot of smoke and heat coming out of the hopper,thus what I think causing the moisture issue. Why is there un burnt saw dust in the fire box? Why is there saw dust in the hopper? Any help is greatly accepted. Thanks
