On my last cook, I put on two pork butts before going to bed. When I got up the next morning, the smoker (an Amerique) was set to OFF. I immediately pusted the start button to check if the smoker had already finished the cook. The temperature probe read 147° and the cooker was at 162°. I check for me and it was clearly not cooked. I thought it was safe to restart, so I continued the cook but the pork butts turned out very dry. There was evidence of a momentary power outage in the kitchen. Clocks had to be reset, etc.
Is there any way to take care of this particular problem? Has anyone ever had similar problems? Is there any easy solution?
