Hi,

So I just got a Yoder 640S and was going through the burn-in procedure today. I noticed that the temps were a little erratic and I wasn't quite expecting that. So I knew it would overshoot and settle in but quite often I saw the pit dropping to like 339 degrees. That seems weird considering I thought it was supposed to maintain +/- 5 degrees (and that is what I had it set on.)

I made a rookie mistake and it ran out of pellets. I added pellets, but it was hell after that. At one point the smoker shot up to 422 degrees. I assume that is something I should expect if I make that mistake again? It makes sense, I'm just looking for some confirmation.

Thank you!

Nevermind this - I probably should have read a bit more before posting up. I see this is all to be expected. Lessons learned!
