Is this what everyone is experiencing? I thought the idea of an insulated cabinet smoker was it was all around quicker to start, easier to maintain temps, quicker to recover temps and they cooked a bit quicker. Am I making things up? Have you tried putting your charcoal chimney in the smoker while you wait for the charcoal to ash over? Maybe that will help preheat the metal. I hope that my new smoker won't have this issue when it arrives in a couple of weeks.
