Temperature control for my Oklahoma Joe Longhorn - Page 3
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
This is a video I did showing my mods to my cousin who has the same smoker and is having trouble keeping temp. This video was done before I added my home made Horizon style plate in the pics above. Now I am able to maintain temps within 2 or 3 degrees all the way across the pit. I hope this helps everyone.

Great video. I have done several of the mods. I don't have the latches, and I just bought a welding blanket, but have not attached it yet.
1. How did you get the blanket attached to the smoker box (and lid)?
2. I used RTV to attach the gasket, but it came off the smoker box after the RTV dried out from the heat. Any suggestions?
I'm going to disagree here. The charcoal helps to get a wood fire started and keep a heat sink, but, once you've got a good base of heat, chunk hardwood is your best bet for a solid fuel/heat source in an offset with the cook chamber/firebox ratio of the Brinkmann TMLE.
