Does anyone have any trouble with their smoker leaving a "burnt plastic/rubber" taste on their food ?I've had this happen twice now.

No its about a yr old I seasoned it.,last time it happened was a while ago,did ribs a week ago and they were great I didn't touch the vent,could it be the apple/pecan wood mix?I have 2 pork butts to do tonight,i'm gonna try leaving the vent open with just apple.

strange....i doubt it could be the combo of wood. have you used the same wood? how old is the wood? i use that combo of wood all the time and never get the taste you described. anymore details on that vent? hows ur airflow situation?
Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner,I think I figured it out,it appears that the "ceramic" coating as its called is burning off of the water pan.I removed the water pan completely and replaced it with a foil pan,no taste,no problem.So just beware of your if you have one of these smokers!I will be calling the company as this smoker is less than a year old.
