One thing I haven't figured out, the bark on my meat isn't quite what it was on my offset. It doesn't get hard and crusty, but stays soft and moist. I have also noticed when I pull the lid to turn the meat that there is quite a bit of condensate on the bottom of the lid. Anybody else have similar things?
Yep...had her loaded to the gills with 5 dozen chicken thighs on two racks last week and it was runnin down all sides!
