Most of the gas grills include a digital thermometer. So, you can easily set up the temp as your own. It is not a complicated task. If you have a digital-based thermometer, please insert it then close the gas lid. Another matter here, you need to monitor the overall temp based on your cooking range. I recommend you to keep the scale for Boston butt grill around 220°F – 250°F.

Here, you need to give sometime your grill to preheat, and you will get your desire range heat. Please remember one thing here, if you notice that- the temp is gone overshoot, then please dial it down. Otherwise, you may not get the delicious flavor from the bbq.

So, please if I am your first time, never use much wood for the grill as it can over smoked- you know, over smoked meat is just horrible! Nothing would be worse than it. So be careful.
