Heres a quick way to get an idea on the heat distribution in your smoker.

Fire up your smoker and get it to 250-275. Get a can or two of pop-n-fresh biscuits and place them in different locations at different levels throughout your smoke chamber. Leave the door closed and check back in 25-20 minutes. The doneness of the different biscuits will give you an idea of where your smoker's hot and cold spots are.

Saw this online, never heard of this before but think it is a great idea
It is Cheech! Before ya throw them in smoke a fatty or two then you can have sausage biscuits while you contemplate the heat distribution of your smoker.
How can you be sure Cheech? The cans keep blowing apart :x :shock: :twisted:

J/K Cheech - good thing to do, plus food to boot
Maybe even sprinkle some cheese on it and also take the idea of wrapping the fatties with bacon and you have a reason for the paramedics to show up is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
