I must apologize, Stacy. I had brain fog yesterday re: LHT. I typically use 10, not 30. As for a low temperature smoke, anywhere from 200-275 degrees, I'm happy with a 10/30 setting. But others may have success with different settings, depending on variables. Mine is an older PG1000 and I understand some changes have been made since mine came out of the factory, so take my advice with a grain of salt. Best thing is not to get frustrated. Once you get yours dialed in, you're going to love it.
