cold in New Yorkand Masterbilt

  1. does not seem to get up to temperature set. I have my turky smoking and have the smoker set at 275 degrees- it is only going up to 210-215. It is cold outside (where the smoker is) 30 degrees but I didn't think it would affect my Masterbilt this much. Are others having the same problem?  Paul

    With the mass of the turkey being cold, that temp is reflected in the smoker temp..... the temp will come up as the bird warms......

  3. Smoker must have been hotter than it read cause the 12 lb turkey was done in less than 4 hrs, Guess I'll have to use my Redi-chk next time. Thanks for the reply. Paul

    Don't rely on the masterbuilt readout.... they are usually off a good amount ..... as you figured out.
