+1 on the "SMF Default Theme - Curve" -- much nicer!   Thanks, LarryD!

I agree with  Dave and Dave.  It looks like a great location to store the 3D, but the clearance on top appears too narrow for my comfort to allow unrestricted smoke from the top.    I also would be concerned if you experience any combustion (the dreaded "burp") of the wood in the beginning of a smoke.

Welcome from Delaware --- enjoy the #2!   Cheers

The timing on these smokes is always a nail biter - too short or too long!   But the key is just what you said:  "They pulled beautifully and the bark was crispy."   Excellent!

Welcome from Delaware, Billy!   I am glad to see the 2D has been delivered and the seasoning has begun.  Keep us posted on your upcoming smokes and let us know if you have any questions.   Cheers

Welcome from Delaware!   I hope you love the #2 as much as I do!    As for the smoker temp, this is normal for the maiden (seasoning) smoke with no meat in the smoker.   When you add meat on your next smoke, you will likely see more realistic smoking temps.   

As for foiling, I don't think you needed to do that on the first smoke that is designed to season the smoker.   When you add meat, you will definitely want to foil the smoker box and floor of the smoker (don't forget to punch a hole in the foil for drainage) to ease in the clean up process.

Enjoy the #2, and let us know if you have more questions.   Cheers

Nice setup, Jake!  The only problem I see with your photos is the lack of smoke.... Cheers!

Hi Dave,

No, I haven't had any issues this week when I log in to the forum.  Maybe Ben will have some guidance.

Maybe it is corrected now, but I have not had any issues this weekend connecting to the forum.   I am on a PC.
