You are correct on the height. I had a mess of chicken to cook and needed space. Also, since there is no heat under zone 4, you have to...

Joem, Nice idea!! Since FEC grate is 17x23, that left you with only about 2-1/2" high space under it if bent to 18" long grate. With the...

Thanks CAL2 and yes I've noticed that the higher I raise the set point the LHt and HHt setting do indeed change. I have a few pounds of...

I run mine on 15, 75. I heard that the newer PG500 adjust their selves for higher heat cooking? Something about two separate settings?

Olysmokes/Padrefan98 I put a SS FEC 100 grate in a vise and bent it on both sides to make an 18 inch grate. It sits on top of the...

Hi Padrefan98, I am just about the opposite of you. Since I got my PG500 I hardly use my FEC100 any more, except for long smokes or...

Hi JWWALKE, I am in the southwest and ran my smoker at 25LHT and 100HHT and only had to change that when I wanted hotter grill cooks.

I have had my PG500 for 3-1/2 years now and live in the Pacific Northwest where temps are somewhat mild. I would continue to play with...

Instead of coating the inside with oil, I'd clean out, refoil, and cook a couple of pork butts to help season it (bacon on zone 4 @ 300...

After 18 hrs total run time, I had a tremendous amount of ash in the burner side and the ash tray (not the pellet pot). Maybe I need to...

Thanks Percy. I thought the same about it going off and then on, but after I wrapped my brisket in clean foil. I returned to the smoker...

I’ve heard on the PG500 on start up blows a lot of ash. It might have happened because it went off and on. I hope someone that has owned...
