    Unfortunately a friend has my painter’s lights but I have a 10M candle power flash light set up so I can read all the thermos.

    I have them smoking at around 230 -250 depending on which thermo I am reading. What is a good internal temp to pull them?

    Everyone loves them only problem is I wasn’t paying attention when I was shopping and grabbed low fat cheese and it didn’t melt right.
     
  14. Low fat...no problem now each slice is only 7000 calories instead of 8000 calories. [​IMG]

    ...Did you get a good smoked flavor? What did you burn for wood? How is the temperature control working out for you? Enjoy:)

    Wasn’t that great of a smoke flavor really mellow where as I like it to be some what strong, two factors lead to it. I used maple bacon which kind of overpowered the smoke flavor and I using a weak birch wood because my apple isn’t seasoned up yet. The temp control was very good considering the conditions, around 15* and some pretty nasty wind gusts. Meat came off the smoker kind of late because I was playing with the vents to see just how the heat would respond. Also I wasn’t too impressed with the store bought sausage. Next time we make up some for the restaurant I am going to bag some before we put in the seasonings and make my own batch of breakfast sausage up.

    I don’t know if it was because of the cold or one of the oven thermos I got is miscalibrated but I had them set up maybe about 3” away from the meat on each side and the one closest to the fire box was very much hotter than the one further away. I had thought at first it was just because closer to the box would mean hotter but then I noticed the tel-tru mounted in the unit read the same temp as the thermo near the fire box.

    No more bacon on mine, I want everything to taste like smoke, not just the bacon. Someone out there did it right ,Can't remember who it was but they fried the bacon first then put it in the fatty, looked great, there is Qview on them somewhere, gonna have to try it like that. Although there is no such thing as a bad fatty. Urs look delicious!!!
