Wow! i had no idea that cooking in the sun could be so much hotter than cooking in the shade!! Grill was almost 100* hotter in the sun!
I know how the cool temps of winter affect the timing but i didnt think about the summer sun at all!

Michael: I'm up in Canada and with things cooling off in the fall I've noticed that my Apex is cooking at a lower temp (350-400) and it's taking much longer to get the wood chips smoking in the tray. For winter I'll probably have to put a wood chip tray right on the grill. A little extra cooking isn't a big deal to me. But, yes, sun vs shade and weather seem to definately affect cooking time.
