Yep, they sure do look done to me too. I'm not sure if you're expecting them to turn to dust, but they typically don't.

Want to make sure I'm getting my moneys worth here. LOL

These were hickory pucks.

I'm with CRG and Kevin.  Those are toast.

When a puck doesn't burn all the way through it still has a lot of tan on it. 

The cause be a faulty generator heater (no burn) or the heat plate needs to be cleaned (partially burned and still tan).

Good luck and keep it smoking,

All pucks look like that after being burned.  If it was half burned, or only the bottom was burned....that would indicate a problem. 

In this case, your fine.  It's working as designed.
