    Here is my second attempt. First time tying the smokenator. A little worried because I have to leave for three hours, but will ask my roomie to refil the water pan.

    I used a rub of onion and garlic powder, chili powder, steak magic (montreal something?) black pepper, red pepper, ginger powder, brown and white sugar and ole bay seasoning.

    put rub on it and it's ready for the fridge

    I get some of those costco plastic meat bags because they are sturdy and use like a shake n bake to get my rub on. lol

    letting it sit out to get to room temp after sitting in the fridge two days.

    got everything going, waiting for the dome to heat up so I can add the meat. Oh quick question...why do I have to bring the dome to 250 or so? I'm just going to open it when I put the meat on won't it lose temp anyway?
  2. Looks good so far.

    The reason you preheat the smoker is to get the TBS going as well as to kill everything that has been growing in it since the last smoke.

    Happy smoken.

    oh i see thanks.
    here are more pics. This smokenator is nice! My roomie forgot to add water, so temp was 300 when I got home. Praying it'll be fine

    The meat temp is stuck at 165 for awhile now.

    Temp is going down. it was 177 now it's 174? Is that normal?
