Okay so got up early this morning got the birds ready etc...however...for some reason I cannot get the electric smoker above 170 degrees this morning? Is it safe to cook at this temp? Maybe I should remove the water pan? Any ideas. I don't won't to ruin all the meat that I was planning on cooking. This only is the 2nd time of used my Brinkmann Electric Smoker.

**Update** Removing Water Pan got temp up to 225 degrees and holding. Will smoke now. :-)

Did you preheat the smoker?
A pan of cool water and refrigerated chicken would be a pretty good
thermal load to overcome
Next time add very hot water to the pan and let the bird just start to warm up out of the fridge and see if things improve.
Glad to see your temps got up :lol:
