Electric Smoker and time

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey all, I smoke at a temp of 225-245 and regardless of how long the recipes say it is always done much earlier. I have a Masterbuilt 30in Electric smoker.

 

The meat always has a pretty good smoke ring evenly distributed just wondering about the time.

 

Any ideas?

About the only thing that can cause that is the smoker is hotter than you think it is.

Are you using the gauge on the MES, because they are notorious

for being messed up.

You will generally want to use an independent thermometer

like a maverick 732 or 733.

There are many more, those are just the ones that come to mind real quick.

It really doesn't matter what the recipe says the cook time will be.

The meat is done when it's done.

Like the others said, get a good dual probe thermometer, so you can monitor the smoker temp & the meat temp.

Check out the Thermo Works Chef Alarm. Great remote probe thermometer. Very accurate.
