    Pit Boss 340 Temp Swings

    Hope it's not an issue to get a new board but like I said the customer service rep I talked with was really friendly and was willing to help me out with my issue which turned out to be....me The grill was fine and even as we speak I just ate another delicious meal off of it so I'd say see if...

    Pit Boss 340 Temp Swings

    I have a pro series 1100 and it has worked perfectly with no issues such as your temp fluctuations your talking about, so sounds like you might have a control board issue? Not sure if you registered your product before losing your receipt but Pit Boss customer service were helpful and friendly...

    I'm going to be finding out soon enough. Planning on buying a whole brisket and cooking it all at once for a group of friends....feel like from the advice I gave you I'm brave enough to try it! That smoke setting to 225 setting really has allowed me to cook right in the middle any of my...

    Looking at my brisket pic I did just place it in the middle. I really do think the low setting will keep meat from burning on you.

    I bought a whole brisket and cut it in half because I wanted to make two meals out of it. I think the brisket may have been roughly about 12 lbs. I set my pitboss to the smoke setting and left it there. I did adjust the p setting to 5 for a little bit just to get a little more smoke but you...

    So I've convinced myself that I don't need to remove or add anything to my Pitboss. I completed cooking a brisket that I placed over the fire pot and managed to have a very delicious and tender brisket as an end result! Not sure about everyone else but I think I'm starting to learn the...

    Hi Kevin, just a forewarning before I say anything but I have had my pit boss 1100 pro series for about 2 months total I think and new to pellet grilling...so take what I say I guess with a grain of salt.... First of all....LOVE my Pit Boss. Really can't compare it to Traegers or any other...

    I totally agree with you because today when lighting my pellet grill I paid attention to where the smoke flowed and noted that it really accumulated at the right side of the grill before rising....so I would assume the heat flow also does the same. So I'm certainly learning lots by just using...

    I agree with everything you said pressurized and have discovered the same things as well. I especially agree with learning to cook with it "stock" and not removing anything or making modifications or adding accessories. I too have had luck just cooking on the smoke to 200 to 250 range and I...

    Well...experimented today and still confused....smoked some baby back ribs on the smoke setting then 200 for most of the day and they came out awesome. I also removed the heat diffuser. The temp controls on the controller and just throwing the two meat probes and my other grill thermometer...

    Thanks for the info. Going to go experiment myself today and see what I get for temp differences with or without the diffuser on and give pit boss a call.

    Just saw your post about your Pit Boss and I think I'm experiencing the same issues with mine and just was wondering if you have been able to correct the issues with the suggestions given? Did removing the heat diffuser fix it or did purchasing a after market diffuser end up being the fix...
