Here is a chart for the new d2 controllers. Notice it indicates temp control "average" variation +/- 5 degrees. Then note the fine print at the bottom of the chart. Cheers

Interesting, good catch. I don't understand how the super smoke mode works?

I wish the 575 had the super smoke option. They should add it, thats a lot of money for a grill.

you have the link to that picture, curious about the timberline as well. I believe its the same as on the ironwood. I might be wrong thou.

When you select super smoke you have to be between 165 and 220f. The lower the better for smoke. The controller know what temp ur at based on the RTD feedback temp and it will vary (lower) the fan speed to allow the pellets to smolder longer rather than burn them up fast allowing the smoke to stay in the chamber longer. Not only will the fan speed lower to prevent the pellets to burn fast (less oxygen and allow a slower burn) but it slows the exhausting of the conventional smoke to exhaust allowing more smoke to be in the chamber longer. I don't know for sure but that would be my best assumption. Just my $0.02

I wasn't aware that the Timberline d2 controller has a built in wi-fi extender. That's a nice feature!

Here's the full size comparison image:
