I have attempted at least three long cooks on thick pork butts and brisket. My Smokefire runs great for the first say 8 hour’s at 250 which usually gets the cuts to around 165 just in time to wrap the meat. Then after that it’s all down hill. It drops really quick. Last night I monitored it very closely and when it dropped under 200 I would turn it up past 450 and when it would come back up to 250 I would throttle it back. I start with a clean cooker each time. Sometimes it will maintain but most times it flames out. I have installed the welded chute and it didn’t help. I’m awaiting a rev F auger motor and a glow plug. If that doesn’t help the only thing not replaced is the control panel. When it runs correctly it’s great. I would not recommend a over night cook if you can’t monitor it closely.What's the longest continuous run you've done on your SmokeFire?
Wow. Now that’s a long cook. How many pounds of pellets did you burn through?This last weekend I did a low and slow on two pork butts back to back to check the functionality of my SmokeFire. It ran for 30 plus hours at 225 without a break or any issues. That does not mean that I have not had other issues (most of those were self inflicted).
