    heat sink

    In all my years I have never heard of anyone using sand... until now. The vertical style of your smoker is designed to have water in the water pan... why not use it? You can fill it with just about any liquid.. but sand? Really?

    Injection question

    Nope... not a lot of heat... after you pull the pork and mix it up the flavor and heat spreads out and it tones it down... then you can add as much as you want to the final product

    Cheese smoking newbie. Need help.

    @StarkOdinson If you use a carboard box, use a pie tin or something to put your tube in so the smoldering ash has a place to go. I'm not sure if you had your grill on? Why would it get too hot? the pellets generate very little heat. a foil pan or two filled with ice can also keep whatever...

    Cheese smoking newbie. Need help.

    Smoking works a lot better in my opinion in a vertical direction. Do you have access to any sort of barrel or drum to let the smoke rise? If not seal one side of the grill to create a draft for the smoke to flow over the cheese. One tube should be plenty... Just don't use mesquite pellets as...

    Control board the problem or user problem?

    For around $4 you can buy an oven thermometer at Walmart.. put it on the grate where you are going to place your food. Do not put it over the burn pot for obvious reasons... Do you have a slide that covers the burn pot and of so could that be out of place?

    You're just gonna have to pay the increased price... Or go without them for cooking and wash your hands more. As a first responder I NEED them... As a cook.. I do not.

    Control board the problem or user problem?

    Wait... Explain where you're seeing these temp swings at? Are you going by the digital display or a remote probe or an oven thermometer that's on the grate?

    Vertical Smoker Recommendation (NOT PITT-BOSS)

    The only way to get rid of electronics is to go to a straight stick burner or something without pellets. If it's giving you that error as soon as it's powered up then it's likely the board is bad. It sounds like you haven't ran it long enough for the internal temp probe to be dirty. (It's...

    Vertical Smoker Recommendation (NOT PITT-BOSS)

    Actually.. I will just post a picture of how high I run mine to get the proper airflow to avoid any errors. I suggest unscrewing it until you're almost out of threads and trying it again .
