I have had my MES on now for over 3 hours. I have had the temp up to 207 degrees but it is now back down to 179 and holding. The Butt temp is climbing but not that much. I can't even open teh box to spray with apple juice or check the Brisket I have in there as well. It is in the Teens in temp here in NJ and windy. I have made a wind screen and put the smoker next to the shed, Does anybody know of any other idea to get the temps on the smoker UP? I am thinking of going to Home Depot to get an insulating blanket but the wife is concerned of fire....HELP!
