Cajun Injector XL ... "NO SMOKE" what to do......

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everybody, this is my first post here. Have been lurking for a while. I recently bought my first smoker and have a question.

I bought a Cajun Injector XL with the double glass doors. I seasoned it as per the directions last night by coating the inside in vege oil and letting it run 2 hours.

Tonight I thought I would give it a dry run so I put about 1/2 cup of pecan wood chips in the tray after bringing the temp up to 225. It has been running at temp for 2 hours and isn't really making any smoke at all. I can smell the wood but can't see any smoke. I looked down the wood shoot to the tray and even the thin wood chips don't appear to be burning. I really don't know what to think. Any thoughts?

baclay, evening and welcome to the forum....        Check the chip tray...   see where and how it is sitting on or near the the heating element....  It may just need a little adjusting....  On my MES, the chip tray sits about 1/32" above the element...

Well, after calling and discussing this with the tech department I am not impressed. After reading the "troubleshooting" portion of the owners manual to me verbatim, they told me to return it. I just got my money back and went to Bass Pro and bought a 40" MES. I hope to have more luck with it.
