    Hi everything that i smoke in my masterbuilt pro gas smoker cooks way too fast! I can't get the temp below 250 and I read recipes that say it should take 3 hours and so on but my ribs were burnt in less than 2! I have a thermometer that hangs inside on the rack so I get a truer temp and i use a probe to check internal temp, however the meat still reaches it's cooked temp to fast! If i left things on as long as a recipe says to everything would be burnt! Need help i am new to this smoker thing!

    take the thermometer that hangs inside and put it in a pot of hot water when the water comes to a boil the thermo should read right around 212 degrees.  you have something that is not on temp.

    You may need to do a needle valve modification. Gas smokers are notorious for running higher temps. Use the search feature here and type in "needle valve". There's a ton of threads that will point you in the right direction.
