  Wow, my SB day is half wrecked... I smoked a big pork shoulder last night, 3rd time ever using my new smoker.. first 2 times were the best pork ribs ever!!! I tasted a little piece I threw on top of the pork after 7hrs of cooking, it was so bitter I still have an after taste after 4hrs.. Looking at the smoker, I noticed the paint all peeled up around the door seal, lots of moisture inside. After finding this thread... no doubt I have the black rain  on it. Looking at the vent, the paint is all lifted...  All in all, I imagine the pork goes in the trash and the smoker is ruined.. hope a call to Bradley takes care of my dilemma. Any help is appreciated.

Did you have the top vent wide open?

sorry for the slow response, it was slightly open, but looks like not enough. I called Bradley, they are amazing to deal with. A big thumbs up for them. I can see I need to take a few more precautions. I hope this situation is not going to happen again.
