I think that will be a lot of salt.  I blend my salt/pepper/garlic 1/3-1/3-1/3  and add onion to your desired taste. it might be best to start with 1 cup of blended rub in case its to much and its easy to blend more if you need it.

So I have a 7 1/2 lb and a 6lb roast to do. Not sure how much seasoning I need but what I am thinking of doing for a rub is this;

1 Cup black pepper
1 Cup kosher salt
2 Tbsp onion powder
2 Tbsp garlic powder

Mix it in a plastic bag and rub on roast and wrap in cello in trig overnight.

My question is does that look like to much rub or not enough to do both roasts?

We need a little more info to be able to help. The model of your smoker and if you're using a pid to control it would help.The outlet for the cabinet on the back of the smoke gen is protected by the fuse on the back of the smoke gen so check that first.An easy test is to plug the cabinet directly into the wall socket, if it doesn't work there then either the inline fuse or the over temp sensor is bad,both are located on the back wall of the cabinet. A multi meter is a big help when trouble shooting.

I have a 6 rack digital and if you take the back off the is an inline fuse that may have blown. I think you can get them at Yard and Pool.

Ok, now this is interesting. I also cleaned the heating pad with
a brillow pad pretty well before this test. I took your advice and stopped it at
552 degrees. I had let it preheat for 20 minutes. It was still going up too, so who
knows where it would have stopped. I'm guessing my issue was mostly old, moisture
soaked bisquittes. But that's a guess. I had taken the generator apart and sometimes
just jossling things around can help...as I've read. And of course the cleaning...
But, it does sort of disprove the theory about all probe-type temperature gauges being inadequate.   ;)

My Bradley smoker quit heating. The smoke generator works. I replaced the Heat Element
Is there a fuse on the back that may need replaced? If so do I need to take the panel off? I see a fuse for the smoke generator but that is obviously separate from the smoker. Thanks.

Glad you posted this information. I am about to start my Bradley "deep" clean, that I generally do in the fall. I'll make sure to check for that problem.
I'd very much like to know what the process is for a "DEEP CLEAN" of an OBS.  I've never cleaned my OBS and its over 10 years old.  But I only did maybe 2 or 3 smokes a year.

I'll take that advice. If it hits 550, I'll stop there and call it a win. The new bisquites are on their way. So, I'll be able to run that most important test.
I'll see if I can make time for a second probe test today.
Thx
