I have been smoking a pork butt today. After 3 hours on the smoke setting I went up to 225 and left it there. It kept cooking there for another 5.5 hours and I was in the middle of the stall when the grill temp suddenly came plummeting down. When I took the guts out to try to figure out what was going on the firebox was completely filled with pellets.
Was this just bad luck? https://scrabblewordfinder.vip/ https://www.applock.ooo/ https://www.7zip.vip/

Same thing happened to me last week. I ended up needing to replace the hot rod. Picked one up at the store and only took about 15 minutes to replace. Here’s a link to the video I watched to help me replace it.

Welcome to the forum @joeyhilson22 - What model grill is it? How old?
