Hello Just got the smoker so we tried some smoking. This Daniel Boone model has a temp range of 150 to 550 Deg F. The new Prime direct drive motors keep the set temp plus or minus only 2-3 degrees! We used apple wood pellets to smoke the Bratwurst in a disposable aluminum pan with butter, onions, brown sugar and Sam Summer Ale. I flipped the brats after 1.5 hours for even cooking. The WiFi phone app that shows the temp with the built in timers for the 3 hours made it easy to track.
