    In for the LONG haul with pics

    You are totally correct on that, But it takes a BUNCH to feed 10 people and have some left overs, That's why i smoked 2 18# turkeys to take. The 16# will feed 4.

    Need to cook 30 slabs by tuesday 1030 a.m.

    Only suggestion I have is use rib racks, or multiple layers of grates. One other thought do them in batches and reheat in oven.

    Never, EVER, grab the wrong end of an Amazen smoke tube!

    I know EXACTLY what your saying. I had the imprint of my smoke tube on the palm of my hand and fingers.  Took it out of the smoker using an oven mitt set it on the grill, took mitt off to open the pellets container to refill it and then grabbed the tube.

    732 issue

    I'm with the others, I'd be contacting them again. I got good customer service from them. I lost my bracket for the smoker temp, I told them I had lost it and wanted to get it replaced. The gal took all my info and said she would get back to me as there wasn't a price listed for it. About a week...

    gas burner losing flame over time

    Try running the burner out of the smoker. If it burns fine then its most likley an oxygen issue which I too am betting on. Another thought is try running it with the door wide open.
