Problem with smoker mod
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
Looks like the exhaust on the propane unit is closed.... open it... also that exhaust looks a little small to allow good air flow.... make it larger in diameter... also, in the door of the SFB, add an air intake in the end door above the intake that is there... place it about right directly across from the connecting stack to the smoker.... That will allow you to move the heat from the SFB to the smoker...... Nice mod by the way... It will work when you get it figured out......
I took your advice and drilled 4- 1/2" holes to the side of the firebox at the level of the exhaust on the opposite side to improve draft. It was the best I could do since it was already smoking for the day. The results were immediate. I now have the lower inlet below the grate almost closed and the cabinet temp is holding at 232. If I open the inlet full the temp goes to at least 275. I stopped it there. Thanks for the advice.
Hey Flyn..... Glad you found a way to mod it with little effort and got GREAT results..... maybe the exhaust stack is OK.... You be the judge and wait for further mods...
What is the FB temp now ?? It should have cooled down considerably and I'll bet you are using less wood too.....
