Well I had to install a valve after my regulator to get my temps down inside smoker. 250 before, 135 now. My question is how many chips should I put in the bowl type pan that this brinkmann smoker has and will they smoke at 135 or will I have to crank it up to get them smoking then turn them down? Also should I put any water in the water pan? This is a great site, I have been doing alot of reading the past couple of days.
