As you've prob heard, don't trust the stock therm. There usually way off. Mine was off by over 100*.
I also had a difficult time obtaining a low temp. When on low, the cabinet temp was well over 300* . A needle valve solved that issue. I can now hold 170* for summer sausage.
Take lots of pics. We like qview.
I have a igrill2 and a therapen so temp checking won't be a problem.
I actually bought the needle valve and have assembly to do the mod. One of the reasons I picked this smoker was for doing sausage. It has plenty of room to hang the links.
