So my best friend gave me an old Cabela's Premium Electric Smoker. Still works for sure. However after using it a handful of times now I cannot get the grill internal temp above 200F. Sits right at 200 once it gets there. I did change out the thermometer that was on the lid with a new one that I know was feeding correct temperatures. So I see all these post about cooking temps between 225-250 for most meats. I did smoke a 2 1/2 lb chuckie yesterday and it took somewhere between 6-7 hours to hit 150F internal temp on the chuckie. Delish by the way. However is it possible I could do, say a 9lb butt? I prefer steak cut so internal temp on butt does not have to hit anywheres near 200. Do you think it could be done regardless of how long? Also how long might you anticipate?
