Smoker runs hot
I recently purchased a Masterbuilt 40" Electric smoker I have only used it 3 times now. The first 2 times I over cooked the meat (Ribs/Chicken) so I decided to check the internal temps compared to what I had it set on. After checking the temps I learned my smoker runs 25 degrees hottie then what I have it set on. Do you think I should get this fixed I do have warranty? My thought was to just leave it since the highest setting is 275 which would give me to ability to cook at 300.

PS: Once I learned the temp difference I smoked some chicken legs and thighs that turned out awesome.

Why recalibrate the thermo to reflect the grate temp.

As long as you know aprox. temps you should be good.

Example my stove in our house reads about 30 less than what you get at anything over 300.

I put a gauge on the rack and use it every day. No problem.
