Replace it with something that won’t catch on fire, like a smokehouse!
Don't trust me to know anything about wiring. And ALWAYS call the CG before leaving the dock
Ex-tero feedback again Howard?
Didn't you learn your lesson?
Just to put this one to bed, I still stand by my original comments. With purely resistive loads like a heating element in a Big Chief, when you have a bad connection in the circuit causing higher resistance the total amp draw will not increase and may actually drop a bit. Your breakers will not keep the thing from going up in smoke. Now where you have a load that is inductive like motors, a bad connection causing voltage drop will definetely cause the circuit to draw higher amperage. I think this is what Bud is talking about as house loads are a mix of these different type of loads and a loose connection in a breaker panel can cause higher amp draw and hopefully pop a breaker. Also if you have parallel conductors in a circuit and a bad connection on one, the other conductors amperage will increase. I know this bores most of you to tears, but bottom line is keep those electric smokers away from combustibel materials.
Fuck Electricity, I'm gonna break out my Kerosene Radio and listen to some tunes!
That's why I use my smoker outside. Plus wife complains about the smoke.
