Took meat out of smoker when it got to 128.  I allowed it to rest ~30 minutes then threw it on a smoking hot grill for a reverse sear. 

 

dvuong, where you said the temp wouldn't get above 185* .... do you know what your shelf temp was?

 

The reason I ask is because that is the way my Gen 2.0 did at times in that I could have the controller set at 215* and the controller would read 185* - 195* and never get any higher, but my shelf thermometer would read 225* - 235*, so I learned to always use a shelf thermometer and set the controller for 25* - 30* lower than I wanted the shelf temp to be

I don't pay attention to what the controller temp says, other than what I set it at.  The shelf temp wouldn't get over 185*.  Towards the end of the smoke, it was dropping down to 175-180*.

Did you try to raise the controller set temperature in order to increase the shelf temperature?

Yep. I originally set to 200, then raised to 210.  There was no rise in temp.  I guess I could have kept raising, but that kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it?  That would mean that's almost 40 degrees difference.
