This is my second batch since switching from my old master built gas smoker to my new camp chef pellet electric thingee?
First batch came out really good but the smoker gave me some problems,ie. it shut itself off half way through the smoke and I had to bring the temps back up.  This thing is controlled for smoke and temp via blue tooth from my phone. Iím smoking up two nice fish that probably weigh in around 20-25 lbs combined.  Brined in 1lb canning salt and 4 lbs of brown sugar for 18hrs.

 Looking good David. 4 to 1 is the same ratio I go by. Learning how new smoker works can cause grief, but seems like you have it handled !!

Alder wood pellets.  This new smoker is scary!  Itís got to many bells and whistles, the reviews on it seemed pretty solid and it has some great features, primarily itís much easier to clean than a traeger.  It has a hopper dump to empty the storage bin, a burner chute to quickly dump the contents of the burner, but it also has some bugs in the electronics. Itís Wi-Fi and Bluetooth operated but apparently only when it wants to.  It can actually cause explosions in the burner which I have heard will blow the lid open.  So I go slowly and cautiously.

Sorry about the delayed response Dave,  been gone awhile.  Quick question,  what temperature can you maintain on the smoke cycle.?   Did you get enough smoke before over cooking the pieces?
  The fan might help?  Most smokers are more vertical.  Iíve used pellets in my modified big chief and they work fine,  pellet bbqs rock for chicken, ribs, butts, etc.   thanks for sharing your pictures.

I have the WiFi Traeger and it does a gret job. I have the newer one with "super smoke" which will smoke at 170 rock steady for over 12 hours. I only do whole salmon, and it came out great last year.
