Bought a new smoker last week, and was looking forward to using it to smoke our turkey on Thursday. Unfortunately, there seems to be something wrong with it. It's supposed to draw 15 amps, but, every time I plug it in, it throws the 20-amp breaker (I've tried it on 2 separate, dedicated 20-amp outlets, and it does the same thing on both).


Manufacturer is supposed to be sending a new element/control module, but it won't be here for a few weeks. Currently in the process of seeing if we can fix it well enough to use it safely on Thursday. Otherwise, I'm going to have to either roast the turkey or figure out how to smoke it on my grill.
