    My 3 year old #2 is not working properly. It seems the temp will go up and down at will. Even wen the indicator light is on the temp keeps going down. Then all of a sudden it will go super high? Temp controller? Element? Or should I just replace both as long as I have it apart???

    If you have it all apart, and since the controller and element are not that expensive, I would replace both. If you have not taken it apart yet, try cleaning the box probe of residue and see if that helps.  You might also find some info at the Smokin-it site.

    I went ahead and ordered both. I will clean the probe first, and see what happens. Thanks!

    These smokers are pretty much bullet proof but sometimes a part does need replacement. Good luck.
