I also just set my GC to 482F and let it run, finishing in typically 15-16 
minutes just before second crack.  I generally get first crack around 11-12 

I also seem to recall a discussion on the list several years ago when the GC 
first came out (and when I bought mine) where someone claimed that GCs vary 
significantly from machine to machine in how hot they run and what the 
temperature settings get you.  Several of the comments from that time seemed 
to bear that out.
