    another gremlin has appeared .... at high temps (350 and up), the thermostat maintains a very stable temp .... at low temps like 225 degrees, not so much .... the temp bounces between 220 and 300+ degrees .... was told by customer service that our grill needs a software update .... we decided to set it up to work with our MiFi instead of with our home internet provider .... that proved to be a problem because the name Verizon gave our MiFi had more dashes and symbols that than smoker is capable of handling .... once the rain lets up we will go back out to the garage and call Green Mountain in an effort to get our grills software updated

      I just ordered a three upgrade items for our Davy Crockett grill/smoker from a company named Pimp My Grill .... a plus with them is no additional sales tax or shipping charges :

      the first is a Davy Crockett / Trek GMG - Upper & Lower Sliding PMG Rack System 2 -- https://pimpmygrill.com/davy-crocket...ystem-2-racks/

      the second is theirDavy Crocket / Trek Front Shelf / Bodyguard -- https://pimpmygrill.com/davy-crocket...elf-bodyguard/

      the third is a roll of Smoker Gasket Seals Self-Adhesive High Temp Sealing -- https://pimpmygrill.com/smoker-gasket-seals-self-adhesive-high-temp-sealing-grill-gaskets-tape-15ft/

      in and info exchange with them a few minutes ago I learned that these things are in stock and should ship Monday from San Diego and take about a week to get to us .... if that proves to be correct, they will arrive about a week before we head for South Dakota for the summer ....
      other than, as mentioned earlier, upgrading the 12V wire end plugs, I don't foresee any making any other mods

        I guess I can still read a tape measure .... with us camping this coming weekend we loaded the Davy Crockett smoker grill into the camper for the first time .... this weekend's tow will serve as a test to make sure old Davy is comfortable ..

          There is not enough OCD medication in the WORLD to make me comfortable with that picture....

                when it comes to our Davy Crockett smoker/grill, its been an interesting few days .... electrical upgrades have been completed ....

                Pictures 1 - 3 show the replacement plug on the back of the grill

                Picture 4 shows the other cords .... one has a red and black gator clip on one in and a female cigarette lighter plug on the other .... the second is a long cord that has an OEM male lighter plug on one end and a replacement two prong plug on the other ....

                with these cords the grill can be run from a standard 110 outlet, an auto female lighter plug, or directly from a battery terminal connection

                Pictures 5 - 6 shows the replacement control unit .... after replacing it we were able to connect Maureen's iPhone and remotely run the grill

                    the fellow who applied the blue electrical tape is an electrical engineer .... he said he learned the technique from his father who was an airplane mechanic who served in WWII in the south Pacific .... I don't know that I could do it myself, in essence he made a heat shrink type sheath that is very strong

                        UPDATE :

                        I'm happy to report that following the replacement of the auger assembly and electronic control panel our Davy Crockett smoker/grill is proving to be an exceptional .... no big swings in temp .... compared to our former portable smoker, its operation is much quieter .... a major plus is it burns much cleaner so it needs to be cleaned much less often .... the attachments from Pimp My Grill and Green Mountain Grills all work flawlessly ....

                          since the update above on the 9th, frustration has pretty much been the norm .... Davy's performance has been maddeningly erratic .... the folks at Green Mountain Grills have been great to work with and have proven to be committed to service after the sale .... we are now on our 3rd electronic control ===> https://pellet-stove-parts-4less.com...t-grill-p-1010 .... the cost of each is around $230, the cost of a new Davy Crockett smoker/grill on Amazon is $359.... along the way I mentioned several times that I believed the Thermal Sensor (picture 1) ===> https://www.ebay.com/itm/17505786044...f6c125f162f239 needed to be considered .... apparently its a part that is very dependable so the concentrated on the electronic control .... eventually one of their folks listened and sent a replacement sensor .... it arrived today and after installed, old Davy performed as advertised .... it even brought the Pizza Oven up to over 800 degrees

                            we are currently camped in South Dakota where two days ago we smoked Baby Back ribs in our Davy Crockett Smoker/Grill for the first time .... in doing so we used our Upper & Lower Sliding PMG Rack System 2 ---> https://pimpmygrill.com/davy-crocket...ystem-2-racks/ that were purchased from Pimp My Grill .... our Smoker/Grill came with a single cooking grate .... as shown below the 2 rack system allows us to smoke 3 racks of Baby Backs and taters at the same time
