I mean that figuratively and literally. Today I planned to do my first meatloaf on my smoker. I got it all mixed up, got some ABTs ready and I was also going to smoke some corn on the cob. I went outside to my electric smoker, turn it on, set the time and temp. When it had climbed up to 200, I decided to put the loaf on. About that time my nice sunny day started to get dark and windy. Here comes the rain. I went back in side and about an hour I decided to go back outside to check on the smoker. I look at the temp and what do I seeâ€¦. 97 degrees!!!! WTF! Needless to say, this is not good. So I fiddle with it for a few minutes. The little light says it is heating, but Iâ€™ll be darn if it is because I can put my hand on the element. Now what? Well, I transfer the loaf over to my grill. So, it is there and the ABTs are going there as well and the corn eventually. I hope it turns out okay. Just wasnâ€™t my day to do some smoking I guess! Looks like I now have an excuse for that new smoker I have had my eye on!
