The Green Mountain Grills are one of the few pellet grills that actually operate on the temps set on the thermostat. The other grills have settings for on/off auger times, but they are only approximates. Set the temp at 200 and have to adjust on.off times for the auger via "p" settings stinks. I have a GMG and set the temp anywhere from 150 to 500 and the grate temp stays constant. It is a few degrees above the thermostat , but steady from start to finish, no big sways of spikes. Just took 1st place ribs and butt, 3rd place brisket, with my GMG and cookinpellets.com 100% hickory pellets. Some pellet poopera are bad designs, but so are some stick pits. Don't sell them sort and if yours isn't working right, get the mfg to fix it!
