I'm slow cooking a 9lb picnic on my Oaklahoma Joe Offset Smoker and I can't seem to maintain that 225 temp after about 3 1/2 hours.
I am only using charcoal for fuel. I started out with 2 chimney fulls of charoal which lastest about 2 1/2-3hr, but now after adding another my temt is staying at 180-170 degrees.
I cleaned out the old ash under the fireboxe basket and gave it a little shake to get more out, so I should be good right?
What do you think....add another batch of charcoal?
I'm fighting a slight breeze too!
