Have Masterbuilt cured

  1. and am ready to smoke. Apparently the thermometer probe wires (have the 732) come up and out the air vent at the top of the electric smoker- correct? Also I would like to ask how high does the temp need to be to create smoke ( will it smoke at 225?). Thanks

    I just close the door onto the probe cable and yes it will smoke at 225F.

    You can do either thru the Door or the Top Vent. The MES will start smoking around 180*F sometimes lower. At 225*F you will be getting great smoke. Remember to add only a SMALL handfull of chips maybe 10-12 or you may end up with your smoker Huffing and Puffing flame out of the chip loader, some guys have had the loader shoot out a couple of feet!...JJ
