Catch your temps on the way up. If you want to cook at 250 cap 1 at 200 cap 2 at 225 fine tune with the ball valve.

Don't go adj crazy give it time to respond between adj. ( Patience Grasshopper) average response is 15 min.

Be aware there is about a 50 degree difference between the center and the edge of the grate. Keep this in mind when dialing in the cook temp.

It will take a few runs to get the hang of it, but that is some good eats too. I promise you you won't go blind if you play with it on a regular basis but you may need new Trousers
