Redzed, I will have to preheat longer and yes I set to the high wattage but turned down for the smoking. I only had a few hours to fool around w/ it so I did the ABTs (atomic buffalo turds) .

I'm going to need more tips on this smoker,it has finally arrived and I'm having troubles getting it past 150 to smoke some ABTs. Seems like it would take hours to reach 225 ?
