I bought a Pit Boss 1100 to replace my Traeger Tailgater, the 1100 is sturdy and well built but im concerned about the searing grate. The middle searing plate get to hot to put anything on for any period of time due to the fire pot being directly below it, I have read threads regarding adding a heat defuser to remedy the issue. Has any one had similar issues and if so what was the solution. I've read that adding a heat defuser throws off the temp gauge as well. Im on the fence about returning the grill because of this. Any members have the 1100 and if so what is your satisfaction with it.
