Q. I've smoked Steelhead in the past with my Big Chef. Took 8-12 hours. Just bought a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker and everything I see suggest smoking for only 4 hours. Also I've read smoke at 170 and also seen smoke at 225. So, why the BIG difference in time and why the discrepancy in temperature. Any help would truly be appreciated.
