It is definitely a process. It took a lot of research and conversation for me to feel comfortable with what I am doing today.
On a different note, I was thinking about your product this morning when I was watching the temps start to climb. The smoker I am working with is 28" wide, 20" deep, and 72" tall. How much heat would your product add to that environment over ambient temp?
The increase in temp is usually 12° with sawdust and up to 20° with pellets. That said, there are a few variables to consider.
1. An insulated smoker will retain more heat than an uninsulated smoker
2. Smoking with a black smoker in the sun will greatly increase the inside temps - Experienced this myself!
3. Smoking at 60° ambient temp has a lower increase in smoker temps than smoking at 90°
4. Using a jug of ice lowers the smoker temp
5. The size of the smoker will make a difference in how much is retained inside the box
