Nice job Ken. Sometimes a rub can either make or break a nicely done chunk of meat.

Basics for a Beginner / Re: Foiling the roof of the smoker?

No foiling of the smoker top/ceiling.  The foiling of the bottom and the word box lid is to make clean-up from drippings easier.

The Auber stickys have a lot of good info from folks who have done an install of the stand alone Auber.   This link should get you started although there are many more.

I do not know if Steve is going to offer an upgrade kit for the analog controlled smokers. He will, in time, offer the upgraded controller for the D models since it will be largely unplug the old and plug in the new.   Tony (DivotMaker) likely has more info on this than I do since he gets to field test and help in development.

You might have to do some experimenting on your own.  Just don't crowd the product and maintain good air flow.

I too have been waiting, wanting to upgrade my existing controller.  Steve said he was working on the written instructions for the controller. Makes perfect sense to me.

Great idea for when you really load up the smoker with meat.

Welcome Billy from SE Arizona. Enjoy the smoker.  I was at Costco this past weekend and whole packer prime brisket was going for $3.49 per lb.  Hard to beat that price!  Enjoy your model 3!

Ed- If you want the ribs to get some smoke, a chunk or two of your favorite wood in heavy foil with a few holes piercing the foil, placed over one of the grill burners. Then it is pretty much how you want to finish off:  in an oven, indirect on the grill, wrapped, etc.

Be patient.  One cannot rush a good thing!

I checked another site and several people there use it and report a sweet smell. Also, the recommendation to use it and smoke something cheap to see how you like it.
