How hot is too hot?
Yes, this was my first time starting a pole so I was not to sure how to start it. Thanks for answering.I answered the question you asked in your post for the poll. I didn't see that there were two different questions until after I voted.
I think 229 is too hot but 230 is even more. The optimum operating temp is usually around 190-195 if you can keep it there. I'm happy if mine stays between 180-210 on those hot July days.
