I have a YS-1500 and I’m seeking information on long cook times. The control board temps are running very close to the set temps.

Cooked 2 briskets at 235* (1-15# and 1-10#). The larger one cooked on the bottom rack and the smaller cooked on the top rack. Took 21 hours to complete cook.

Last night smoked 2 8-9# pork tenderloins, cut in half. All 4 cooked on the bottom rack at 235*. The sliding plate was open approximately 2”.
Cook took 9 1/2 hours.

I have replaced the thermocouple with the last 6-8 months. Anxious for any recommendations or like situations anyone has experienced.

How often are you opening the door?

Are you spraying/spritzing/mopping liquid on the meat?

Assuming you meant 8-9 pound pork loins and not the much smaller tenderloins.
