Stoker - power cycling on and off continuously! Any suggestions?
My Stoker keeps powering on and off. This started with my last cook and I thought it might have been the cold ambient temp. Sure, it's cold today but not that cold. 33. Any ideas?

Many thanks

I've used my stoker in much colder temps than that with no power issues. I'd give Rocks a call.

Thanks Bonewagon. Well, it's a bit colder than what I said earlier. It's around 20 and a driving snowstorm :wacko:. I put a small heating blanket in with the stoker/router and it seems to be working better. I will get in touch with Rock's to report my issue and see if they have any ideas.

This is wierd. It USED to have this problem but Rock fixed it a long time ago. I remember him saying it was the probe connectors which had electronics in them and they had to be warmed too but that was like 2007. See video here.

Thanks Donnie, I remembered seeing that video before Popdaddy's passing but couldn't remember where! Thanks for posting. I will Rock's a call to see what my options are. Or move to a warmer climate!

Either way, I have a 13lb brisket in there now that will cook if I have to rub sticks together.
