My wonderful wife surprised me yesterday with a smoker for Christmas yesterday. (my first every) It's an electric Cajun Injector with a glass door.

I've got it running right now in the garage with ribs in it, with the garage door partially open for some ventilation.

I'm having problems with temp though... I set it for 275F. It took 1/2 an hour just to get to 150F, and now 1.5 hours in it's still only at 230F.

It is 20F outside (a little warmer in the garage). Has anyone else had problems with one of these in the cold?

The recipe I have tells me that I should start basting every half hour, after an hour cook time, for 4 hrs total. But, I'm afraid that it will take forever to recover temp if I open the door. Might just rely on the rub I put on it, and serve bbq sauce on the side at dinner.

Anyone have any experiences with this smoker?

thanks,
Cary

That's a great suggestion. I'm going to hunt down a fire blanket next week... (wife wants me to smoke some salmon next week :-)

Thanks Wally!!!

I wouldn't baste that early into a smoke. The sugar content of the baste will cause the ribs to darken up. I don't baste ribs. Rub em and smoke em. You'll know your doing it right when the bbq sauce you put out doesn't get touched.
