I did the bread test today on my Camp Chef PG36 pellet pooper. I had the thermal blanket on it, it was about 35f today. Drip tray is foil covered, so obviously the louvers on the left half were covered. The slide and grill thing covered the fire pot, I wanted to do this set up like when I'm cooking on it. 300f, about 30 minutes to get results. Bread on the table just as it was on the grill. I suspected the left rear was the hot spot, when it's full of pork butts I have to rotate out the left lower butt. So there it is, saving fellow PG36 owners from buying a loaf of cheap white bread.
