Pork / Re: first smoke.... bb ribs

An hour and a half of smoke should be plenty. In fact, depending upon lighting, there may have been nearly invisible smoke after you stopped seeing any. Relax and enjoy the drink. Temp swing seems normal. The initial fire-up can go high then it settles down. You can peek at the  4 - 4 1/2 hour mark since you are using 235 degrees.

Model 2 & 2D - The Middle Kid / Re: Knob Problems
« on: Today at 05:02:18 PM »
Not familiar with the analog controller but if you can rotate it to its farthest position consistent with the smoker's highest temperature, that should allow you to reposition the knob  and insert a home made shim along the flat to secure the knob/lessen/eliminate the play. You can then order a new knob.  If there is play in the shaft of the controller, you will need a new controller. You might still be covered under the warranty.

Beef / Re: Smoked Prime Ribeye Steak with Bone

Greg - I have never smoked a prime ribeye before but I have grilled quite a few.  COSTCO is my go to source for prime and the steaks always turn out special. Good luck!

I would check the element for cracks and the fire it up for just a couple of minutes without the wood box and see if it has a relatively uniform color or glow when hot and no dead areas. If all is well give Steve a call or shoot him an email.

Auber PID Tips and Tricks / Re: Extension cord on Auber
« on: July 16, 2018, 11:11:17 PM »
I don't believe using the extension cord will have an adverse effect on the Auber.  As for auto-tuning, do you suspect that it is needed? In other words, is you smoker running hotter or cooler than the set temp?

Best of luck.
