How's it going people, so I'm from queens, New York USA. I recently received a master built sportsman elite 30" propane smoker. Its nice single door design with two racks. small guy really but will do for now.
The other night I smoke a brisket for about 14 hrs came out really good but definitely wasn't done right.
Under wrong instruction I had it between 250, and 300, I was burning threw wood chips like crazy pretty much every 30 minutes, I didn't use the wood tray that came with the kit cause I was told that a cast iron skillet works better. I filled the water tray about 4 times, I also used dry wood chips.
The brisket came out very good, the bark was deffinitly blacker then I wanted it to be lol, but for the most part it wasn't dry.
I noticed like 3 or 4 hours in that the door does not have a great seal, at all but with a little tape I sealed it lol. definitely need to fix this problem was thinking about high temp gasket shit u can use on engines. and I really don't like the thermometer that come on the front seen a lot of people say that they are off, by like 60 degrees, I think that's crazy but they might be off by a little.
so just incase anyone really reads this, ill try anything that is recommended to me to see if it works so definitely shoot some ideas my way.
