Here in Southern Connecticut the temp. is a balmy 27F. My Brinkmann is not coming up to temperature, (its running at 145F). The Smoker has been running for 1½ hours and I filled the water pan full with boiling water at the start. Ive added a temperature probe to the Brinkmann.
Has anyone tried to wrap a B. Smoker with a hot water heater wrap?
My theory is that the wrap would insulate the smoker and raise the internal temperature. My fear is from fire and perhaps upsetting the balance of the Brinkmanns temperature control, IE the smoker might run too hot
PS If the meat, (Boneless Chuck 2.39LBS), doesnt get fully cooked in six hours Ill finish it off in the oven.
For smoke Im using apricot wood.
