    I wanted to try the mayo corn we discussed on another thread.  I also tried using creamy italian dressing as well.  So I went to Wally World and picked up six ears of corn for this experiment.  I wanted to do 3 of each.  I will just say that I didn't care for any of it and maybe I did something wrong.

    Sorry for the bad pics, I used my video camera for pictures.

    Starting out, I soaked the ears in water for a little bit to loosen up the husks.


    Then after peeling the husks back and removing the silks, I smothered them in Mayo and Italian.  Then off to the smoker.


    I ran the smoker at between 200-220 for just under 2 hours.


    After pulling husks back I noticed that there was still quite a bit of mayo and italian still on there.  The tops of the corn that were a little exposed didn't have anything left, but the bottoms were still soaked in the dressings.


    That part had me concerned.  I was thinking all the dressing would have baked off.  Anyway, I tried the corn and didn't care for either one.  I am thinking I did something wrong.  

    But regardless, I learned stuff on this smoke so I guess it was worth it.  I learned my dial thermometer is 25 degrees high.  I learned that when I get the smoker up to the correct temp, my smoke set up puts out way to much smoke.  So those things made this smoke successful.

    Sorry about your corn experiment gone awry, but you should be able to adjust your thermometer on the Smoke Vault if that's the one that is off.
