So about 3 weeks ago the wife said she had enough smoked meats. So I took a break and we had some grilled food etc. Went to light the smoker and I fought getting it to temp for a good hour or more. Then I realized... I didn't open the ball valve for the blower fan.... No more taking 3 week breaks from smoking.

I like having the ball valve. It allows me to shut it down and save my charcoal.

No argument from me on that. I pull my fan & damper off and screw in a plug. Shutdown on my smoker isn't as simple as just closing a ball valve, I run a HeaterMeter controller, I've got probes & such to disconnect & pull.

I run a heater meter also. I leave my pit probe in after pulling the meat and close the top damper and the valve. It probably doesn't save enough charcoal to worry about, but it makes me more comfortable when I go in for the night. Also having the valve allows me to leave the adapter for the blower attached as it is on the other side of the ball valve. Just gotta remember to open it when I start up :headwall:

As a rule, I'm not quite comfortable leaving my HM or the fan/damper assembly outside customarily. Weather conditions in the winter can get just a bit inhospitable.

Low and slow. It really does make a difference. Might not be noticeable to some, but the texter is so much different. Not rapping also makes for a noticeable difference. ImageImageImageImageImage
