No particular reason. I'm not sure how much more smoky they would have tasted with one more load of chips. Three hours of smoke left them plenty smoky, definitely not "mild".

I checked out the MES using my new Maverick 732. I set the smoker at 150°, 225°, and 275°. The Maverick read about 10° higher than the smoker readout, so it's not as far off as I suspected. I had also suspected the actual temp was lower than the readout on the smoker, but it turns out it's higher. Just proves, at least to me, how valuable a good thermometer like the Maverick is.

Yes---A good Therm is a Huge Help, and being off of each other by 10° is very Good!!!
