Reply to "My new 025"

Not giving up on my PB. Following this one through for a learning experience if nothing else. I'll finish in the oven if I have to.

I set my Mav therm alarms at 200 and 275 to manually turn the smoker on and off. Once the PB hit 130 my alarms didn't get tripped anymore and now 3-1/2 hrs in we're stable close to my setting of 225. I am currently putting all meat in at 40deg straight from the fridge for consistency until I get things figured out.

I assumed that the smoker would use the temp value that the display reads to determine when to turn the heating element on / off. Seems like there are two probes. One for the display and one for the heating element and they might not read the same. Especially when there is a 6 lb 40deg hunk of meat in it. It's probably functioning normally.

Btw, it's 25deg and snowing like hell here.
