My grill is an old firemagic grill that has been rigged to work. It has a adjustable propane regulator and needle valves on the burners. It will throw 1 ft flames or turn down low.
The problem I have is when I only have one burner on it still gets very hot. 350* at the lowest. This is according to the thermometer in the lid. I bought thermometer on amazon. I've never checked if it's correct.
How do I get the temperature down?
How do I do the water pan?
Would the water pan help?
The grill is 6 burners. Two per each valve. It doesn't have a burner plate to disperse the heat.
Can I use old cookie sheets to be a burner plate?
I plan on using an old metal pot with dried mesquite chunks in it covered in foil for smoke.
Will that work and be fine for smoke?
My plan was to use the right burner. With the smoker pot over it then the burner plate next to it in the middle to disperse the heat some and then put a pan of water on the left side and cook the chicken on the left side.
Should that work?
What temperature should I cook the chicken at?
I'm sure you can see. I'm new to this.
