Just started using my PG 1000 and it won't hold temps, last night no wind and I started up at 225 and as soon as at it got over 200 I set it to 170 and came back after putting my steak on in 15 min it was down to 122, I bumped up to 225 and when I came back it was at 333 degrees??????

Was it empty? Some PIDs don't do well with no load to work with.
My PG 1000 ran like that the first couple of times I used it and then settled down, or I settled down I don't know which. I am really starting to like it now that I have been using it for a year or so.
I've thought about a PG, but that seems like a long learning curve. I'm not young anymore!
Jay: I just turned 70. The learning curve really isn't that bad.
Gotcha beat by a couple of years. Maybe I'll start looking into it seriously.
I've got ya both beat by a couple of years.
I just switched back to using a smo45 after having a PG 1000 for 6 or 7 years.
As idahomike said the learning curve is not too bad plus there is a lot of information available here and at the CookShack web site.
