Maybe you can fire it up tomorrow and use a external probe that isnt connected to camp chef in the meantime. Worth a shot

I bought the same smoker and it has worked perfectly. I do agree with the temp swings but I have learned to deal with them. It puts out some fantastic food. Sounds like a controller issue. I have toyed with the idea of upgrading to the Gen 2 controller but I have read you still get swings. If it isn’t broke......
