    Ok. So after reading countless articles of what each others smokers are doing. I decided to test my temps in the unit I have. I work around machines that are the exact same but not all are created equal. Not all heaters work the same way. They might manufactured the same way but Electronics no they might be the same react differently. So I am now testing what my temps are at the different positions all the racks and front to back and center. I will publish my findings when I am done. But because of work I can only do so much. I will be done tomorrow with my findings. At the latest it might be Sunday when I show what my unit does.

    testing to see where Probe Actuals
    are. Did not adjust actuals below.
    Just wanted to see where each probe
    measured.

    Chip Tray not in unit during testing
    since I will be using my AMPS unit.
    Top Vent on smoker open half way as
    I also have a fan that pulls the smoke coming
    out of the unit to outside my screened in porch
    where I do my Smoking. 3"in exhaust pipe
    on vent and aimed at fan.
    Water Pan left in unit.
    No metal plate added at heater area to direct
    heat flow towards center
    All temp readings taken at lowest point before increasing in temp.
    And highest point taken before temps start to drop again.

    Already made a mistake. Smoker set to 220. Would come turn back off when hitting 220 about a minute later. Sorry. Trying to be correct in all of this
