Just picked up a new burner to replace the one in the Wookie that burned out.

Last one was a dual burner 700 and 1000 watts

This one is 1100 watts and has an adjustable knob for the output.

The whole thing was $8.99!!! I could not believe it

Cajun have you tried out the new burner yet?

I just installed mine in the Wookie and it is running a bit low.

I really do not understand what happened because this one is 1100 Watts and the other was a dual with one side 1000W and the other side 700Watts
it worked just fine with the one side.

Not sure what the deal is. The down side is that I have 60 pounds of salami that need to be smoked tomorrow.

I may have to finish it in the oven gasp

Ufortunately I have to agree. But then again, this is my 1st electric smoker, so I really wasn't sure what to expect. Anyway, I have deceided to keep this smoker as a "cold smoker" for sausage and such.

Well thought I'd try things again. Today it is 65-69* outside. Using only the 800 watt burner' I have had my "fridge Smoker up to 255*. I am going to assume that the outside temps had something to do with my lower temps earlier this year when the outside temps were alot lower.
