I just tried seasoning my newly delivered Gen 1 today. I plugged it into the outlet and powered on. Within just a couple of minutes of setting the smoker to heat to 275 the controller went dead. I guess it tripped the GFCI. I plugged directly into the outlet without an ext. cord.
My previous Gen 2 smoker never tripped the GFCI. Is there something wrong with this unit?
I've tried plugging it into a second outlet and it lasted a little longer this time but shut off again. Time to call Amazon for a return?
