Default Country Smoker Digital Controller Question

Hey All,

What's the difference between the "Cook" and "Smoke" settings on Danson's digital controller? I don't see it in the manual.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Bret

"cook" uses the thermostat, and the temperature you set is what you will cook at. "smoke" does not use the thermostat, it is just a timed feed, that usually cooks at about 170. On a bigger unit, 160.

I cook on them a couple hundred times a year, so no worries. If there is a way to break it, or adjust it, I've done it twice LOL

Dropped it off my ramp... check Replaced paddle wheels, replaced motors.... check, check.... Had pellets swell into block of sawdust during a torrential downpour at a contest with the hopper in.... :)

But that country smoker had gotten me alot of calls in chicken.

Get in the fray!! Make sure you let folks know you are a first time competitor, and ask lots of questions.

Lord knows you can find everything you need around here to prepare yourself.

I'm getting close. Right now I'm working on getting some equipment so I can pull off a competition - an EZ-Up, pans for dishwashing, etc. I'm going to try and do a practice cook in a week or two just for giggles. I'm also hoping to judge a comp this year. I need to look into that, though.
