I think I am going to pull the fornt of my OBS and put the meter on the slide cntrol to see if it does cut off. Of course soon as the funds become availible ( when the wife says OK and stop nagging me jerk) I will be adding a PID.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

Had ribs for lunch today and they are just as good reheated as they were last night.


Sometimes there better.

There's a much simpler method.  Put the slider all the way to the right.  Wait 10 minutes.  Open the door and put your finger on the heating element.  A little Carolina Treet on your finger wouldn't hurt any.  ;D  If it sizzles, you're good to go!

I bet she would. Every time shesees me smoking she comes near the Bradley and sits by loke almost guarding it for me. She gets a hefty share and is a happy camper.

Just a couple of thoughts... using one of those tin foil pans (about same size as the space in bottom of the smoker) about 3/4 full of hot water helps reduce the preheat time (as opposed to bricks etc) and will give up its heat more readily than a solid mass like a brick there by improving recovery time.

Old theory indicates the moisture (vapor) from the water will also more effectively transfer heat to your meat as well.

Old theory also indicates and after much experimenting I believe it that - slabs of ribs all cook differently and that using IT on slabs results in a huge variation due to the difference in thickness / fat content etc end to end.

Finally got the discipline to let them cook until at least a 1/4 inch of bone was exposed AND the bone would break loose with a reasonable amount of twisting rotation.
