MES 30 TEMPS. Pro. Purchased from HD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok. So after reading countless articles of what each others smokers are doing. I decided to test my temps in the unit I have. I work around machines that are the exact same but not all are created equal. Not all heaters work the same way. They might manufactured the same way but Electronics no they might be the same react differently. So I am now testing what my temps are at the different positions all the racks and front to back and center. I will publish my findings when I am done. But because of work I can only do so much. I will be done tomorrow with my findings. At the latest it might be Sunday when I show what my unit does.

Already made a mistake. Smoker set to 220. Would come turn back off when hitting 220 about a minute later. Sorry. Trying to be correct in all of this
