I have a 30" masterbuilt electric smoker, smoked awesome ever time I used it. go to use it to smoke something and no smoke just chars the wood. Don't think its the heating element because it gets up to temp and seems like no issues. So I cut away the metal piece under the fire box to see if that helps, help a little saw some smoke then nothing. let it run for half hour with no smoke. the vent was open to keep it heating. what do u guys think? I was going to put the 1200 watt element in there and try sawdust.
