I just got my SMO25 and am attempting to cook a pork butt. Seasoned it two days ago for 6 hrs. with 2 pieces of the hickory that came with it. Well, this morning tossed in my 6lb pork along with 2 pieces of the hickory. Plugged in the meat probe and it registered 92 then 195 and finally HI without it even being inserted in the meat. It does this no matter what I do. Any suggestions?
Also, when I seasoned it almost no smoke out of the vent at all. Today with meat in it, it's coming out the dang door there is so much. I assume I shouldn't be getting that much smoke. Maybe it has to do with the door being open a number of times while I tried to fix the probe. Any help is appreciated.
