Okay, odd question.  I have a model SM025. I've had it for 10 years.  Probably my best outdoor kitchen appliance, have smoked hundreds and hundreds of times, all kinds.   The other day I was outside cleaning my kitchen area and I noticed the cover over my unit was quite warm, warmer than a black cover should be (it's a heavy cover).  I took the cover off and to my amazement, the smoker was on! I usually unplug it but sometimes I guess not.  I can't imagine accidentally turning it on while putting the cover over it after the last time I used it and turned it off.  Anyhow, I have no idea how long it was turned on, a couple of days I suppose.  The lengthy heat under the cover melted a portion of the controller top!  Except for cosmetics, the controller and performance don't seem to be affected.  A bit of Gorilla tape hides things.  Odd experience.  Thank goodness for Cookshack's robust build.  One day I might replace the controller.   So just wondering if this ever happened to anyone or if it was self-inflected.  I will definitely unplug from here on out.
