that is true and I'm thinking that these guys are shooting for a "range" vs a "temp" throughout thier cook. I also wonder if these guys are in a climate that has less severe swings throughout the year (unlike mine).

I'm sure it can, if you adjust the intake accordingly. I've only used it twice and it held a consistent temp VERY well but I closed the intake by about 1/2 the factory setting to get 275 (again, cold, dry air here in Boston today). It held 275 throughout my rib cook but when I removed the meat, it ran empty at 325 (no adjustment to the intake).

Ok, eliminating the draft issue is a great thing and I also like the look.
