Unsavory flavor?

its an aldi but basically same as masterbuilt with a window i burned it in for 2 hours on high then chips for an hour
No idea then other then overloading the chip tray. I only add chips every 30-40 mins when I use chips.

I'd blame the seasonings, before I would blame the Smoke.
If it was too much smoke it would have been too thick to see through, and the outside of the food would be bitter, not pungent.

BTW: Smoking for many hours is fine, as long as it's light smoke. However Heavy Smoke can be bad, even if it's only for a short time.

Was it your first smoke after seasoning the smoker? If so, turn it on high for a few more hours while adding wood chips.

Then when you're done with that, chuck the chips and figure out how to run an amnps with your model :-)
