    I do not believe the stall will be helped much by the second element. At least not in my experience. Go back and read the article on stalls. I...

    One last minus..... Imagine cleaning that pan after 12 hours. Yes, I do the dishes and no, I would not want to wash it :D

    I think there'd be plusses and minuses. On the plus side, you can use a liquid bath for flavored moisture. On the minus side, it's a sealed smoker,...

    Could be the meat itself, could be the temp or time, could be too much smoke. You will get a "bark" on the outside, so some is to be expected, and...

    Thanks for the compliment, but I'm not doing anything that others have not done for me previously, and on an ongoing basis. I found ST from a post on another board by a member here, smokin-tnpete. Returning the favor is the least I can do. Finally, learning by doing is great, learning from somebody else's doing is better yet, and shortens the learning curve......
  4. Great to hear from you. Thanks for all your contributions and thanks for being a great SmokinTex customer.
    Head over to our SmokinTex Facebook page and help out that crew!
