Ironwood 885
I picked up a new Ironwood 885 recently and have cooked a brisket, burgers and St. Louis style ribs on it so far. Prior to the Ironwood I had a Pro 575 that I never had any issues with but since upgrading, my meats seem to reach temps much quicker despite using exact same process. On top of that, the final product seems to be lacking. Meat is no longer moist and tender like it used to be. Any ideas?

Do you have a thermometer to check what your temps actually are? I have the opposite problem and my box temps are 20-30* lower than what they are set at. I bought a fireboard WIFI thermometer and rely on that for my readings. I suspect that your box is running hotter than what you have it set for.
