Hi all, I recently got a Pit Boss 700fb to primarily use for smoking food. I also recently upgraded to the PelletPro PID controller after experiencing crazy temp swings when doing a brisket with the stock controller. For more about that story see here. Anyway, after installing the new controller, I have been very happy with the temp control (no more crazy temp swings!), but during my last cook, I noticed that the temp on the grates was about 30 degrees higher than my set temp of 225. I have a grate attachment to get the temperature at that grate. So my question to all my fellow brothers (and sisters) of the smoke...Have any of you with a pellet smoker monitored your grate temp vs your set temp? My set temp is very consistent with my dome temp. And it makes sense that the grate temp would be higher as the source of heat is directly underneath it. To combat this, I simply lowered my set temp 30 degrees (to 195), to get to my desired 225. But something interesting happened and I experienced burn back which I wonder if it was caused because my temp was so low and the pellets were getting fed TOO slow. So, coming back to my main questions. 1) If you have a pellet grill/smoker, have you monitored your grate temp vs your set temp? 2) If so, what (if any) was the difference in temps? 3) What kind of Pellet grill/smoker do you have? 4) Have you ever experience burn back? Thanks for reading my thread and I hope to hear from some of you with your thoughts! Cheers!
