The 1250 has a shutdown mode. I used that and have no problems.
The 700 has a shutdown mode also. But sometimes with a combination of brand of pellets and length of high heat time , you have the potential for smoldering. Maybe the new controller on the 1250 is a different shutdown pattern, but it's just something to be aware of
This isn't something that happens all the time if I misled anyone.

I am a new user so thanks for the heads up. I will keep an eye out in the future.

Hey just wanted to let everyone know that after about 20 uses I no longer have this issue. The grill turns off fine and I have not had smoke or anything in the hopper after shutdown. If I have it turned up past 350 I just turn it down to 275 and once it's there I shutdown and it's works great. With the app it's easy and the app reminds me to turn it off when it tell me the grill has reached 275
