New 2D
« on: September 23, 2022, 05:37:36 PM »
Just got my new 2D smoker and seasoned it. Am I just not reading the instructions correctly?  Cause I'm not understanding them. Not sure I care about the preset stuff. I just want to set the smoker temp,monitor food temp and learn to set the timer for cooking the meat. What am I not understanding?  Is there a video that makes it simpler to understand?  Thanks

Welcome, I'm sure somebody will be along to help. I only have analog and haven't used the D models.

I have an older 3 D and cook only to temp or time.  No other programming or pre-sets and ramps etc. I zero out what I do not use. Also, I have the instructions at the smoker each time I use it. Sad but as with vcrs and our cable box, I do not find digital gadgets intuitive.  Wish I could help. And the instructions are not as simple as they could be.  Screen shots and arrows and text all add up to confusion on my end.

Old sarge, you got that right. Simpler instructions would be great. Guess I'll just set my temps and watch the time on my phone. Thanks

Brian - Maybe these videos will help you with the controller. The 3d link is just so you don't feel alone in needing the instructions.  Good luck!
