I just ordered the new Smokette Essential. (750Watt,7 Amp,120Volt single phase)
My problem is I need an extension cord 40 feet long.(Only have one outside outlet and want to put my smoker in a spot where it will be covered-under my stairwell-very rainy here!)
After reading many post regarding extension cords I went out to an electrical supplier and purchased 40 feet of commercial grade cord. It is a 12 gauge thick black neoprene covered cord. It reads on the side " 3/C 12 AWG (3.31 squared) Type SJ 60dgree C. 300Volt RoHS"
Two things: Will this cord safely power my Smokette? and Is this cord Ok to run at 40 feet long? I haven't seen any definitive answers as far as maximum length of 12 gauge cord for Smokettes are.
Any knowledgeable feedback and advice is welcome.Can't wait to start smoking-safely!!!
