Howdy folks from way down south in Texas, i'm using a char-broil electric smoker, oh and i think it is like larry maddocks, but was wondering if someone could tell me how to check the 3 way outlets to be sure they can handle the smoker. I have had some good luck out of this one outlet and now i am having trouble getting about 205 degrees. I am not sure if it is the outlet or maybe since it is a little cooler here now just in the mid 40's that the thin metal is not holding in the hear enough. Any help from y'all would sure be appreciated. And yes i know some of you are thinking "get another smoker" well have thought that too, but the most i do is smoker for 3 to 5 people, so do not need much. Oh and suggestions on a smoker for say around this number of folks will be muchly appreciated. OH and by the way i have a 8 lbs boston butt on now and 2 fatties one with rub and other just out of the wrapper. Can't wait to hear the replys.
