Picked up a used SM260. The unit was filthy when I got it. Cleaned up, new seal, 2 new fire box’s, 6 new racks and a fresh season. Ran 2 packer briskets, and 8 pork shoulders. I put 11.5 oz. of hickory in 1 wood box. (I hadn’t ordered the second one at the time.)
The product came out….meh. No smoke ring on the beef, and a little on the pork. Smoke flavor was quite light to not at all. I ran the unit at 225 until the meat was done. Took a tick over 12 hours. What am I missing/doing wrong?
It’s worth mentioning, we run a barbecue food truck and catering business, and our primary smoker is a 250gallon stick burner.
