I suspect the temps at grate level are lower than what you're seeing. Try smoking at 275 next time, much shorter cook with nicer results, and the neighborhood smells better (meaning they can smell the meat cooking, not smoking).

I also have agrate level thermo (also brand new) that states 225 degree temps too.

I would check those thermos. Boil some water and put them in the water while it is boiling. It should read 212ish based on your elevation...

If your grate thermo is reading 225, than you need to ramp up the heat.... 275. Low and slow is not the holy grail. Specially when you're pressed for time ;)

How often are you peeking, spritzing, etc? When you're lookin', you're not cookin'.

What thermo model(s) are you using? I've read here recently that the older ET-73's will freeze at a given temp if they are moved too far from the transmitter - just thinkin' out loud.

Dave, I see that you're right down the road from me. It's been cold and pretty breezy at my house today. Is your smoker out in the wind?

I used to have a brinkmans propane smoker that wouldn't (couldn't) get meat to a finished temperature when it was in any sort of cold breeze. The wind would strip the heat off the smoker box faster than the burner could replace it. It would get in the range of mid 140s to mid 150s, but no further.

Can you place your smoker in a protected location? Just a thought.
Good luck.
