Good afternoon SMF

It’s been awhile since I’ve been on here so I hope everyone has been well. Recently axed the MES and made the move to an OK Joe. Taking her on her first ride today with some smoked leg quarters. Will follow up with some Q view in a bit! 87C0C1B4-F97D-446C-BA2F-A8E51F23C446.jpeg

It happens. I tried and add wood before opening that way it has time to catch fire and any dirty smoke gets out of chamber

Looks like you got a bite through skin. What temp did you cook at?

It was bite through!! I was worried it wouldn’t be with the 30 mins of low temps. I cooked around 300
Perfect temp for skin on chicken I think. Sometimes I start at 275 for a little extra smoke time then cruise up to 300.

Congrats on the new rig!
From the looks of the chicken, it sure didn’t take you long to figure it out.
Awesome looking chicken!

Good looking chicken!!

What are your 1st impressions of the the OK Joe?
I like it. I was never able to get my electric hot enough to give bite through skin on chicken. That was no problem with this one. However I am going to have to work on my fire control techniques and maybe look into some mods. I can’t blame the heat issue on the smoker just yet. All in all my first impression is good!
