What temperatures do you get with a wood smoker? I think I might have some openings in between the planks that lets the smoke get out. I am getting a maximum of 185F. The smoker is made out of thick pine planks with an 1500wat electric dual burner. I put a cast iron pan with the wood chips in them.
I am smoking sole filet right now, I've cured them and they've been in the smoker for more than an hour, holding steady at 165F no matter what I do!
