Just in seasoning it he had it maxed at 700F and couldnt understand why he couldnt bring down the temp. The temp adjustment was already at its lowest setting.
My suggestions to him were to soak his wood chips(he was using them dry), seal up all the leaks in the doors(pictures show lots of leaks) and to shelter his smoker from wind(really windy outside & with leaks that could raise temp), make sure his water pan always had water in it or try replacing the water with sand(heard some use sand to stabalize temps instead of water).
I will say when I was there it didnt get above 350F so I'm not sure what the diff was.
Do you guys have any more suggestions or input as to what to try or do here? Please share.
What would be a good gasket sealer for the doors? Felt, silicone or something else?
