    I just used mine today for the first time. Exact same smoker. Put a pork belly in with a salt and pepper rub for about 6 hours. Had some troubles getting the desired amount of smoke, but there are a few different things I'm going to try next time. Ended up still tasting great though!

    Many thanks. On the HD site, another person was complaining about having problems getting enough smoke.
    I have a great smoker but am tired of monitoring temps albeit, the meats and more come out great every time.

    Again, thanks. And a big shout out to Jeff for having the forums.

    Most of the guys with your smoker also get an Amazen tray to compliment the smoke.
    It uses pellets or sawdust & will give a nice thin smoke for up to 10 hours with out refilling it.

    The only issue is you won't be able to get smoke when cold smoking with out a ..
