Stoker wifi fan running times on LBGE
After much research and heart ache went with the stoker. Price was great and the expansion capabilities are what sold me. Solid unit with 5cfm fan that works as it advertises but I have some issues that I wonder is anyone here has experienced.
The unit seems to get the temp and hold the temp very well within specifications but my fan seems to run alot more that I would have thought it should once it gets there in order to maintain.
For instance, the weekend cooked baby backs at 275. I always set the hi temp target plus 10 and the low -10. (Not sure this is correct) I know it was cool - high around 53 and breezy, but fan was running every minute or so for two seconds it seemed like if not longer. Moved the pit probe around a little but still seemed to be running a while. The result seems to be cooking everything faster than you would except almost like a convection oven. Anyone else have this issue or know what I am doing wrong? I have the daisy wheel on and adjusted to not have any back pressure when the fan is running, ie little rattling of door. It usually means the holes on wheel fully open. Cooking indirect with plate setter. Legs up. Just foil on top to make clean up easy. Maybe I need water pan?
Tried another set and lowered the temp to 255 and still got almost the same result. Was shooting for 2 hours on smoke, 1 hour wrapped, and whatever they needed after that back on smoke. However after the wrap they were fall apart done.I checked the probes with the boiling water test and all was good. What am I missing.
