Smoking on Oklahoma joe offset smoker. I thought it would be reversed and the grill grate temp would be higher. Paola's are burning steady and oak logs are producing a nice little flame.
I really hope it's cooking 230-240 and not 400.
Don't hope find out. You need to do a boiling water and a ice water test and find out if your thermometer is correct.
