As usual, I'm days late and dollars short. That was an awesome smoker. It's alot like what I'm looking for in my new smoker. I have to say that it's a beauty. Too bad it had to go back. I saw that you said you were going to have to do biscuit testing. How does that work? I haven't heard of it, yet I can see something like that identifying the hotter spots in a smoker. Sorry this is so late after all the messages, but I just sat down to read the WHOLE string.
