I hate to tell you this but you should learn your fire without a temp controller first. Learn fire and how to control it manually and the best ways to get good smoke. Using a controller is putting the cart in front of the horse. I have two controllers and don't use them unless i'm doing an all nighter (i need sleep) You'll turn out better Q and learn more this way....TRUST me.
Practice, start with a small hot fire which will give you the best smoke and experiment with how your temps go.
