Pre-seasoning went great. I picked some hickory wood chips at JAX, I soaked them for about 15 minutes, threw them into the chip tray during the last 45min... and soon I saw what seemed like TBS to me. The wife and kids were definitely liking the smell they were smelling.
So far, so good.
BUT... after the pre-seasoning session, the middle digit display appears to have burned out already :( Good thing for the remote, which I had to resort to in order to figure what was on the display.
I guess this means a call to Masterbuilt. I think before I do that, I will validate the temp reading on the console/remote with a separate thermometer.
A shipment of 20070311 Gen 1's are suppose to arrive at MB tomorrow 6.25.15. Any news on the controller you're waiting on? I'm looking forward to the replacement smoker they'll be sending me.
