    Picked up the Weston 48" smoker so I can do snack sticks and other stuff. Decided to break it in today. I had bought the Bayou Classic M5HPR-1 10 PSI Hose, Regulator, Valve Assembly to help control the heat since the reviews said it doesn't like to get up to heat especially on colder days. Well right off the rip the new hose caught on fire at the crimp so had to make a quick change over to the hose that came with it. Now I can't get it to 225. Sitting around 200-210
    now not wanting to go higher.
