I have the Masterbuilt XL smoker and have major troubles getting the temps down to 120F for smoking Jerky
I am using a cast iron fry pan for the wood tray and hickory chucks for wood
My problem seems to be two fold
First to get the temp down to 120 I need to leave the door ajar about 3 inches; which seems to defeat the purpose of smoking
Second when I get the temp that low the wood does not smoke until it gets to above 250F
Would adding additional vents help to lower the temps; if so located at top or bottom of unit?
Open to other suggestions for the no smoke at low temps
