    Does anyone have any trouble with their smoker leaving a "burnt plastic/rubber" taste on their food ?I've had this happen twice now.
     
  2. how long have you had the smoker? is it new? did u season it properly? do you have enough airflow?

    No its about a yr old I seasoned it.,last time it happened was a while ago,did ribs a week ago and they were great I didn't touch the vent,could it be the apple/pecan wood mix?I have 2 pork butts to do tonight,i'm gonna try leaving the vent open with just apple.
     
  4. Could you have left some of the packaging on what you cooked - unlikely I guess but possible.
     
  5. strange....i doubt it could be the combo of wood. have you used the same wood? how old is the wood? i use that combo of wood all the time and never get the taste you described. anymore details on that vent? hows ur airflow situation?

    Sorry I haven't gotten back sooner,I think I figured it out,it appears that the "ceramic" coating as its called is burning off of the water pan.I removed the water pan completely and replaced it with a foil pan,no taste,no problem.So just beware of your if you have one of these smokers!I will be calling the company as this smoker is less than a year old.
