When I was done smoking,played around with the vents some, the smoker was holding temps with the vents both open and closed, didn't seem to matter to the smoker, if they were open or closed. I'm puzzled.
Hi All I guess I'll just have to give it another try, and see "IF" I can control the temps...Not much left to try, but this time start with fewer coals, and see what happens. Would like to stay in the 250-275 range, if possible.
You're probably the only one with that set up, so its hard for us to give you advice. you're probably going to just have to keep experimenting. There was a guy here that had one of those that did good long smokes with it, but he no longer posts here. He didn't do to many mods. He used a hunk of rope that looked like a neck tie around the lid and base.
Hi All You what is soooo puzzling about this conversion, the same company Master Forge had charcoal smoker.same design as the Electric one.I really thought this conversion would be a NO brainier. I do have some smoke coming out of the lid,if I seal that off,then where does the smoke go?
