New guy from Sierra Vista AZ

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all.

I am so glad I found this forum.


I am an Army Vet that works at Fort Huachuca for the UAS program.

I have always love BBQ and smoked meat. About a month ago I got a charbroil 40" with a good size hot box



 I tried smoking a few things already. I recently tried smoking a 4 lb pork butt.

The biggest problem I have run into so far is maintaining temperature. What happened is, my temperature would fall, then I would add coal. The temperature would go up a bit but I could never get it back to where it was when I started. At the end of 6 hours My hot box was full of used coal but my temp stayed low. I had to finish my pork in the oven :(


Any tips would help

Thanks guys.

I've had the same issue with my offset smoker (Char-Griller Duo). I solved it by installing an oven seal around the lid and making sure all holes were plugged up. I hope this helps... good luck!
