I have the Bradley Counter-Top Convection smoker fo a couple years now and am getting some great results.
Last time I used it I was smoking 8 beef plate ribs, which need 280 degrees and a t least 6 hours. I noticed I had some unburnt pucks at the end of the smoking session.
Yesterday, I wanted to see if it was working properly, so I didn't turn the oven on, just the smoke and let it run for an hour. It was cycling pucks, but they were unburnt and there was no smoke.
The unit was warn near where the pucks are, so I expect the element isn't burnt out, just not hot enough to ignite the pucks? Is it worth taking it apart and trying to figure out what is going on? Any hot tips appreciated,
