I got my SM020 (smokette essential) yesterday and seasoned it today. There are two concerns: the first I found answers for on seaching the forum. The door leaks some smoke at the top of the door -- no big deal and I will give it some time. The second is that the electrical connector was not fully inserted through the hole so that the cabinet top interferes engaging the connector from the contoller. I had to pull the female connector trough and wedge it in position to plug in the male connecto from the controller. Now the female connector is under tension, so I'm concerned about longevity of the joint. Should I be concered?
It sure did smell good in the back yard. Pork butt tomorrw.
