During a pastrami smoke this morning, went out and found the smoker temperature going down. Took the meat out and got into the oven, have to finish it like this I guess. Well since I have done a lot of reading on this site and there are many posts on this issue I knew where to start. Fortunately this is a newer MES and it has the access panel on the rear, removed and found the issue right away. Will have to pick up a stainless steel connector and a piece of wire as there is not enough extra wire to reconnect.
