I purchased a cover to protect it from the elements and always used it, and it was on a covered porch outside.
Despite that care, it stopped heating, I called customer support who was really nice and they recommended a new heating element. I purchased it and put it on. During the replacement I found out just how bad their craftsmanship is. There was a pop rivet inside the sealed cover to the power terminals - lord knows how that didn’t cause a short circuit and start a fire. Also, many screws were missing, and the star washer for the ground terminal was missing.
After replacing the heating element the unit still didn’t heat, the controller shows it’s trying to heat, the power light is on, and the heat light is on so the controller is working. Time to go back to the drawing board and call the ever so friendly support staff again, they say to replace the spade terminals if I didn’t. I told them they looked fine but I changed them anyway. Still didn’t work. Now they say there is nothing I can do, it’s something in the body, and I’ll have to replace the entire body, they concede that will cost more than a new unit. I asked if I could remove the back and access the wiring and get parts if I find something wrong. They said no.
This was upsetting since I only smoked a dozen times. I don’t have money to spare. So I took off the pop rivets off the sealed back plate to see if I could determine what the issue was. I found it right away. The entire back is packed in insulation but a small box can be removed that uncovers the terminals to the thermostat the controller senses with. One terminal looks burned or chared (smoked) and is dangling, the other looks terrible as well. I don’t know how they got this way since this area is completely sealed. It just got cooked because it’s directly attached to the back wall of the smoke box. Poor design and I bet a lot of people have this problem when their smoker isn’t “fixed” by swapping the heating element.
The heating element could have simply been tested with a digital multimeter to ascertain it was still functional. FYI it should be around 17-18 ohms. If it’s an open circuit it’s bad.
The packaging this came it was top notch, all of the racks were taped up very nicely to prevent any wiggle or damage to the internal heating element. I actually read the instructions which I’m glad I did it because there is a “seasoning” process which should be done to burn off any traces of machine oil and prepare the smoker for its maiden voyage.
The first attempt to use this was 4 boneless chicken breasts. Needless to say it was a fail and pretty bad, but I honestly think this is because smokers are really designed for bone in meat. The chicken we purchased had zero fat on it so it got dried up and I got a little discouraged. I did a substantial amount of reading on endless blogs out there and decided to give it another go around yesterday which was Easter 2016.
Now, I do a lot of grilling in the summer time at least 3 or 4 nights a week so I know my way around a BBQ using natural gas. One Item that has always been a little daunting is ribs, I have never made ribs before as I’ve just always thought it to be a harder item to prepare and cook and cook them right.
So in my efforts to step up on my man game a bit, I decided that yesterday I would venture into making ribs on the smoker. Now, you can read all the recipes in the world out there and they will all tell you different things and methods so just find one and go for it. I ended up modifying the one I found online so to each their own.
The end result IMHO was that of a competition worthy result, maybe not first place but at least in the top 5. I’m now even more eager to give this another go and it brightened my spirits up a bit knowing that it actually is possible.
I will say that cleaning this is not the most fun part at all, but if you take care of this product it will withstand lots and lots of cooked meals. You cannot use any abrasive chemicals or rough sponge so my recommendation is to grab yourself a few beers, grab some tunes and a roll of paper town with some water and clean away. I also recommend wearing gloves while cleaning as it will get quite messy, take your time and it will be well worth the time spent to keep it clean.
Only minor complaints I have which are nitpicky is the controller for the temp and time. It does not feel super stable and is only held on by two screws in the back of the plastic board and held center by a screw on the top of the unit. It does not sit flush but then again you don’t mess with it while cooking so it is only a minor one.
The other complaint I have is I’m a tall guy and this thing sits pretty low to the ground; I will build my own stand for this over the summer to raise this up a bit without compromising the center of gravity. Overall I couldn’t be happier with this item and again, cleaning should prolong the life of the unit.
