I'm new to smoking and I fired up my new Smoke Hollow Pro 44 this weekend to "break it in". Manual said to bring it up to 300 deg. for and hour, so I loaded up the chip pans and water pan- I could only get it up to about 240 with both burners on high? I want to see what happen if I only had one burner going so I tried that and it climped to 260?
It was only 38 deg. in the garage (door open) with a pretty good wind.
1 With those conditions is that about as hot as it will get?
2 Was it starving for air and thats why it climbed when I turned the one burner off?
