Temperature swing on 2D
« on: December 07, 2019, 11:31:27 AM »
Smoked Salmon today. Set 2D at 170 degree. Saw temperature swing between 161 and 174 degrees. Iíve smoked brisket and pork butt at 225 degrees and only saw  a 2 to 3 degree swing  in the temperature on my 2D. Any thoughts on this unusual temperature swing at the 170 degree setting?

Thanks,

Bugman

I would not worry about it.  With the lack of mass, salmon versus brisket and butt, the swing will be more noticeable but still within the acceptable tolerance.  Enjoy!
