    Just picked up a new burner to replace the one in the Wookie that burned out.

    Last one was a dual burner 700 and 1000 watts

    This one is 1100 watts and has an adjustable knob for the output.

    The whole thing was $8.99!!! I could not believe it

    cajun I did get it there were some issues and could not get back to you so I figured that I would mail you the burner and it would get to you faster than my pm :cry:

    Cajun have you tried out the new burner yet?

    I just installed mine in the Wookie and it is running a bit low.

    I really do not understand what happened because this one is 1100 Watts and the other was a dual with one side 1000W and the other side 700Watts
    it worked just fine with the one side.

    Not sure what the deal is. The down side is that I have 60 pounds of salami that need to be smoked tomorrow.

    I may have to finish it in the oven gasp

    Ufortunately I have to agree. But then again, this is my 1st electric smoker, so I really wasn't sure what to expect. Anyway, I have deceided to keep this smoker as a "cold smoker" for sausage and such.[​IMG]

    Well thought I'd try things again. Today it is 65-69* outside. Using only the 800 watt burner' I have had my "fridge Smoker up to 255*. I am going to assume that the outside temps had something to do with my lower temps earlier this year when the outside temps were alot lower.
