Smoker running too hot
« on: June 05, 2021, 06:18:17 PM »
Hi. We just today received our Model 2 smoker and are seasoning it, according to the instructions that were included. We foiled and put 2 pieces of wood and set it for 250 degrees. I have a probe inside to monitor the interior temp and a remote to see what the probe is reading. The temperature raised to 378 degrees right away. It lowers a bit, to 280 then increases again! Should we set the temperature dial for 200 to get 250? It just seems incredibly hot, too hot for a smoker!
