Ok, I smoked 3 six# butts yesterday at 225 for six hours and internal temp stayed at 154 for 2 hours. I had all 3 on the middle rack of my FEC100. I was also smoking some buns so I turned the temp up to 350. The internal temp rose to 190 but I also had smoke coming out of the pellet hopper. The pellets in the bottom of the hopper were hot and smoking. I don't think that is supposed to happen. What did I do wrong???
Is the interal temp supposed to "hang" for several hours?
