How to check belt drive tension

A quick and dirty check:

In the middle of the belt run (half way between the two pulleys), it should deflect about 1/2" with 10 lbs of pressure.

How to measure the 10 lbs?
You could use one of these:

Or, if you're too cheap for that, use a fish scale from a sporting goods store that sells fishing equipment.
To test it's accuracy weigh a new 10 lb bag of sugar, and mark the scale where it registers.

I got the xtra wide propane smoker and when I seasoned it before using it my wood chips caught fire , i had soaked them for 1/2 hour . When i went to smoke some fish I soaked my wood chips for 5 hours and...

Hopefully, it's just a case of the burner turned to high. For most smoking applications is low and slow. By low, I mean no more than 200 to 250 degrees. And by slow (depending on what you're smoking primarily meats) 3 to 5 hours or more. Fish shouldn't take more than an hour and a half.

Check out the Masterbuilt website home page and you'll probably find the manual you need or you can contact them directly.
