Be careful not to overheat it - I killed my Precision by using the
partially covering it with a box method, which worked great for those
winter roasts, until one day when I wasn't looking and the box fell
over, completely covering the unit. It got hot enough to slightly melt
the base and my thermometer 'crystal', and fried the circuit board.
Repair bill: $44 + shipping (could've been worse I geuss, the Hearthware
people were very nice, considering I certainly voided the warranty). I'm
making do with the Poopery meanwhile.
Next time I'll make a smaller cardboard chute that just recirculates
part of the air, without covering the whole top. Plus I'll need to fix
the thermometer; I showed Tom, it still works but the problem is the
plastic lens was the only thing holding down the numbered face beneath
the dial pointer (kind of a design weakness IMHO), so I'll have to
calibrate it with boiling water and peg the face down with a screw or
