SCOUT STARTUP TIPS TO AVOID OVERHEATING

  1. Upon startup, set the controller temperature to SMOKE, leaving the lid open until the temperature on the smoke peaks.
    • Peak means it slows down and stalls on a temperature and stays there; however, this temperature will vary based on the outside temperature.
  2. Once the temperature peaks, shut the lid and leave on SMOKE for an additional 10 minutes.  The temperature will typically overshoot to approximately 200°F (remember, overshooting is normal) and then correct itself back down to approximately 160°F. This fluctuation may repeat, but it should settle after one or two fluctuations..
    • If the temperature stays calm after 10 minutes:
      1. Increase the controller to the desired temperature and allow it to preheat completely. 
    • If the grill overshoots above 200°F:
      1. Open the lid again to let out some heat until the temperature drops to 150°F.
      2. Shut the lid.
      3. Observe if the temperature regulates.
    • If the temperature doesn't regulate, see AC Grill Running too Hot to troubleshoot further.
