 I am sure Steve will get back to you.  I know he was away on smoker business and returned last week so he is probably catching up on messages.  He is very good about returning calls and emails.

Don't know.  I have seen some photos of fowl where the person maxed out the temp and the skin looked crispy and was reported as such.   I will do some prowling around and PMing to see if any want to post their results here.

No promises though!  But here is one link, from this site under chicken.

Welcome and enjoy the adventure.

Get a small torpedo level and make sure that the unit is level side to side, front to back.  A litt slope to the front is ok.
If you foiled the bottom, ensure the foil is flat and smooth and that you have punched thru to the hole.

I don't think you need an additional hole. Besides that, it will alter the airflow and may cause your wood to be consumed quicker.

Hope that helps!

Looks good!

You cannot go wrong with any  of the Smokin-it models. It all depends upon your needs now and the future. You can always smoke less in a large unit, but not more in a smaller unit.

What type of tree do you use? / Re: Favorite Wood
« on: March 11, 2013, 12:22:21 AM »
Some of the natural wood I have used has been sort of barky and it takes some time to remove.  Also, I have heart wood as well as the clearer outer wood which I prefer. The dense stuff works great in my stick burner (and the fireplace) but the closed environment of the electric smoker begs for clean wood. So, I am in agreement with you.

By the way Wolf, your arm has healed up ok, hasn't it?

Hope all is well.

Thanks!  That cooking/smoking chart is terrific.  It should be of use even to those with years of experience.  Again thanks for the link.

The Smokin-it, like other high quality electric smokers, is pretty much air tight (90% or better?) save for the typical smoke vent and opposing grease hole so it retains a certain amount of moisture that the meat gives up during smoking.  The additional moisture may affect the bark.  You can use one since Steve offers a liquid pan on his site. And there are a couple of youtube videos showing folks using small aluminum trays on either side of the element to keep things moist and smokey.  Maybe even add beer or cider rather than plain water.  So give it a shot and see how you like it.

Steve will, from time to time, toss in something for free as a promotion.  Many companies do that. Sometimes.  Not all the time.
