    I bought a Stok Tower charcoal grill last week from Home Depot.  The grill is very nice, the only problem I have right now is that I'm not able to keep the temperature low (225-250).  Anyone using the same grill?

    Yeah, I have one for a few years now. I like the heavy duty aspect of the grids and the therm, while not 100% accurate, is pretty close. Truthfully, I use it mostly for grilling steaks or burgers not low & slow cooking BUT I did invest in the charcoal holders from Weber used for indirect cooking. I think 15 bucks for 2 of them in the package. I've made some chicken that way, filling the holders about half way using a chimney starter. I used 2 at once and it seemed to be to hot, so switched to using only one and it worked better. I suppose one could put a chunk of wood on top but I doubt it would last long. There would be room for an AMNS if using the Weber inserts. Hope this helped...

    My guess right now is that the grill is not 100% sealed and there's an airflow coming from the bottom vent.

    I bought this online at Target... I love my tower grill, I use hardwood charcoal... Easier to light & longer grill time, I have high hopes for the smoker/infuser! Wish me luck!!
