Low temp

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have the Smoke Hollow 4 in 1, I completed all the mods that I read online. I'm using hickory wood chunks and charcoal. I can't seem to keep the temp up to 225. I have the damper on the firebox door cracked at about half and inch. If I open it anymore the wood flames up. How do I get the temp higher.

Let the wood flame

Let it flame for how long though?  Isn't that putting some not so nice things into the meat?

mine flames up almost the whole time and my meat turns out good, I just move my meat to the opposite side of the firebox..im fairly new to smoking so I don't know if this is the correct way, but that's how I do it

If you are not using a basket put the chunks next to the charcoal so the heat will smolder the chunks and open the damper

Build a big fire in the FB.... let it burn down to coals.... add small chunks during the smoke....   smoke basically on charcoal embers.....
