I’m going to use smokboost today. New York strip steaks. So how do I use that and set temp to 220 degree? THEN, how do I get out of that so I can set temp to 550 so I can sear the steaks? TKS in advance.

Like someone said months ago, this just isn’t for you.

If you want 220 then you don't use SmokeBoost. You just set the temp.
As for setting the temps (for that and later).. That one is on you to work out.

IMHO SmokeBoost is a crapshoot and not worth the time. The temp it gives is dependant on the ambient temp.
If you have any problems (which there is a good chance you will), it will lead you back on a path you were on a while back and we all don't want that.

But I agree with what has been said above, if you are asking how to change the temp still then this might not be for you.

TKS for just a whole lot of nothing when a guy asks for help.

I canceled smoke boost, set temp to 595 and seared both steaks. One at medium rare, other medium. Four minutes each side. PERFECT!!!
Grilled small piece of corn for six minutes. Sweet, juicy and tender.

You were asking how to change the temp and how to turn on SmokeBoost.
Read the manual or watch a youtube video.
Given your history here, where were you expecting?
