This is my first post although I have been hanging around for a bit reading the posts.
I am having problem with my new propane smoker. I cannot control the heat properly, it gets way to hot. It seems that the burner is way to big for the smoker. I have used an electric smoker for years with no problem and thought the propane would be be more versitile as far as heat goes.
As far as smoking goes it is almost impossible to get any because even though I use soaked small chunked wood on top of the brickettes the wood is gone in no time (way to hot) I have to keep the burner almost shut off to keep the temp about 300F. I am going to try and fit a steel tray over the brickettes to hold the chips to see if I can prolong the smoke.
I have checked around and cannot find any info on these smokers from other people if they have had these problems. it was not a real cheap smoker, but that dosen't mean anything anymore.
Anybody using one of these that can pass on some help, I would like to try some more expensive cuts but am a little leary at this point
A little windy post but I think I coverd my problem
