Unplug it, throughly dry it (use a hair dryer if needed) and try again.

Oh... you can water your smoker... but trust me... it won't grow.















I hope it's okay.

Depending on how the local company generates electricity, the MES may on a fundamental level actually be "Coal fired". Glad your smoker is OK Derek!

Oh thanks bro, I'm glad it's ok too.

The smoker quickly got back up too 200*f,

But as of now I'm getting a BGE I've finally decided what model to get WOOHOO!

No more wishy washy for me made up my mind, And my folks decided to loan me the extra $500 dollars to get the small green egg, so I can take it in my car to comps.
