According to what I understand Bradley told them this is normal![:(!] Just use the heat from the burner, I was told, to keep the heat about 100 to 125. I then asked how was I to make jerky in the smoker?[:p] She agreed that not being able to use the smoker for a 50+ degree spread was not acceptable.I related the trouble that other members of the forum have had and mentioned the circuit board that others posted about. It will be monday before I hear from them...[:(]Where there's smoke....there's meat!tIMINATOR!!HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS YOU HAD FROM A BUSTED HEATING TUBE TO A BAD HEAT CONTROL. CALLED BS ON THURSDAY AND ON FRIDAY HAD A NEW HEAT CONTROL. I PUT IT IN YESTERDAY AND IT SEEM TO BE THE CURE. I AM BEGINING TO QUESTION THE QUALITY OF THE B SMOKER. WHEN REPLACING THE CIRCUIT BOARD/HEATER CONTROL BE CAREFUL. THERE ARE THREE SCREWS ON TOPA AND THREE ON THE BOTTOM.THEN ONCE THE COVER IS OFF THERE ARE 6 REALLY SMALL SCREWS IN THE CIRCUIT BOARD. I WOULD SUGGEST USING A MANGNETIC SCREW DRIVER WHEN REPLACING BECAUSE THERE IS NOT MUCH ROOM FOR BIG FINGERS. WHEN REPALCING THE COVER ON THE BOTTOM YOU HAVE TO WORK AROUND THE RUBBER FOOT. MAGNETIC SCREW DRIVER IS A MOST HERE SO YOU DON'T DROP THE SCREW AND CAN'T FIND IT (HAPPEN TO ME). GOOD LUCK!I AM DOING A PORK BUTT TOMORROW AND HOPE MY CONTROL BOARD WORKS !BIGREDBigRED
