     Hi, just got a maserbuilt extra wide gas smoker. Should I be smoking at 225 or 250. seems to be alot of debate. When I start the smoker I get good smoke for a while then the smoke gets very light evan though the chunks are still good. Is this normal. I also get condensation leaking ouy of the door. Is this normal.

      Thanks, nordo0

      Thanks for everyones input. First real smoke this weekend turned out great.

      I had so much room in my masterbuilt XL I got carried away.

    1 slab of pork ribs, 1 slab of beef ribs, 1 pork loin, 1 2 lb salmon filet and a 7 lb chicken.

       A little tricky with so many different foods that require different treatment in the smoker but all turned out great.

        My company was more the pleased and unbuckling there belt by nights end. sorry no pictures, I have to figure that one out.
