help with offset smoker

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone i am fairly new to this forum. I have been using a Master Built electric smoker for a couple years and have had good success with it. So I took the Plunge and bought  a Char Griller Duo smoker and added the smoker box to it. I have used it a couple times and had decent luck with it. But this past weekend i had a slab of baby backs and tried to use the bigger smoker to try and see if i could make it work. Well after about an hour i said screw it and put them in my master built and gave up on the offset. 


No matter what i did i could not get the Temp up over 200. I tried less air flow, more air flow, some dry wood and soaked woods. I used logs and chucks, charcoal starter on the bottom. But I had plenty of very think dark smoke and couldn't get the temps up. I need some help.....

Hello.  What we need is pictures of your entire process from the point you build a fire.  That's about the only way to answer your questions.  I do hope you were not relying on the factory therms in your lid.  They are usually way off.  Keep Smokin!

Hard to get a handle on exactly what you were doing with your fire, were you using charcoal for heat? If so, how much did you use to start? did you use lump charcoal or briquettes?

The link below is how I start my fire and cook with wood splits-
