thanks for your feedback.looks like this cord should do the trick.this forum is great-i've learned a ton and my smoker hasn't even arrived yet.
i went and had lunch today at a great local smokehouse restaurant. i spoke to the owner and asked if i could see his smoker. he brought me to the back and there it was- a sweet commercial sized cookshack smoker.he told me he bought it a year ago when he opened up his restaurant. he couldn't say enough good things about the brand. it made me feel confident in my smokette purchase.he even gave me some of his smoking wood to start me off.can't wait to fire it up.
