Temp Won't Go Up

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


I am a first time user (after seasoning of course) and I notice that my MB Cookmaster won't go higher than 150*. At first, I was using an extension cord, but subsequently read not to use an extension cord. I moved unit closer to the outlet, but the smoker still won't go over 150. I have the dial cranked up to High and it's been there for over 3 hours.  Could there be a problem with the thermometer? I have minimal smoke coming out from the door seem (which I know is normal). I took a peak an hour ago and the pork is cooking nicely. I just don't want to over cook it if the thermometer is bad.....

We had that problem the first time we used our smoker. We contacted the company, and they were wonderful. They sent us a new element and a new cord immediately. You can email them and explain what your problem is. They are very good people to deal with. Good luck:)

Put an oven thermometer in the unit for now, if you have one..... Stock therms are "usually" junk.... use a candy thermometer..... anything... Dave

Yup what Dave said  Thumbs Up  Most of us monitor our smoker temp with a remote thermometer. I use a Maverick ET-732 & it works great - You can track smoker temp & meat temp at the same time with it...
