    New smoker. Need tips.

    Got me a smoker for chrustmas. Just a nice little starter propane job. Need tips for a venison roast tomorrow. Ideal temp and time? I also need to get a wireless or wired thermometer. Some utensils and gloves. I have a little of bit of smoke coming out the sides of the door gaps, dont worry about or is there a DIY fix? Doing a break in now. Oiled all surfaces after cleaning. Doing a mesquite soaked 10 hrs. And the water from the soaking mixed with guiness. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Where Do you oil? Behind the sprocket? I do not have a manual for the saw currently. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Yes the chain is on backwards. Thanks for pointing it out. I still have some small parts to replace on it so I wont be using it till spring. Just assembled in current form to make sure the brake was the initial issue. Og brake did not stop the chain. The model number for the saw comes up as husqvarna also. I dont know if that improves the saws status. I'm just under 100$ all in. For a working saw. With plastic case, sharpening system and 3 chains. Not bad imo for a first saw that will only get used for spring deer property maintenance. I have chaps and a helmet/face shield as well since I'm a safety sally. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I want to say thanks for all the advice yall. I really appreciate it. I contacted the company I bought the brake from to see about return/exchange. After comparing the original and new brake. The new one was slightly smaller. And it rubbed in a spot on the clutch even when disengaged. They called it defective and shipped me out a new one free of charge. Just got it in the mail and it fits better. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Also is it possible to just pull the internals out of the melted brake and put them into the old one? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    So it seems the consensus is the housing for the brake is possibly too small. Or by revving it with the brake on it generated too much heat. Aka user error. I'm only I to this saw for 90$ total. I'm fine with throwing another 50 at it. If I do. Are there some internal bushings or anything I should get since I revved it a bit with the brake on? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I should add that since she started rough I let it warm up a minute and then gave some throttle with the brake on. Then disengaged the brake and she ran. Some googling tells me that revving it with the brake on can do this? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Should clarify. One pic is the old brake. One is the melted new brake. Now that I think about it.. could a bar that is too tight cause this? There was some slack in the chain but not so much I could pull the teeth out of the guide. Or did I clean the flywheel too much thereby getting rid of all lube and I should have relubed it?

  13. Bought a poulon pro 20" It was in bad shape. But started. Cleaned it all up ordered new parts and replaced them. One of which was the brake. It was broke. I got the new one on and fired it up for the first time. Took a few pulls but she started and ran and the brake worked. There was alot of smoke which I thought was odd. Filled the bar and chain reservoir before starting. This is what I got. Sprayed some chain lube on the flywheel once I got it apart again. And it was so hot it smoked. What happened here? Was the brake clamp too tight? My error or poor replacement part? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Plot advice needed.

    We have been hesitant to strip out the under growth as the deer find safety in it. Other than clearing a lane or two for the stands. And a trail going to the back of the hardwoods. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Plot advice needed.

    The timber was logged a 10 years ago. No trees good enough to log. Barely enough decent trees for tree stands. Sightlines in the hardwoods are limited to 20-30 yards due to under growth. Leaving deer many different routes through Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
