flame too low

My Smoky Mountain propane smoker got to 219f before I put the turkey in @ 6AM PT; temperature dropped to 139, slowly rose to 149. How do I get it back up to >200f so the bird will be done by 2PM?

Opening the door and putting in a big, cold turkey will require some time to recover. Just a fact of the cooker. Just have patience and it will recover and cook your turkey in time.

Good luck.

Thanks, but after four hours @ <155f, I moved the bird to a small electric smoker I use @ RV resorts. Electric smoker is now north of 165f, so hope it gets to >200f for the few hours left.

Are you going by the thermometer in the smoker? They are almost always way off from the actual temp at the level of the meat.

Propane tanks have a built in safety valve... Turn off the gas to the smoker... turn off the tank.... Turn the tank on S-L-O-W-L-Y... to reset the valve... You might hear a click when the valve opens and resets... It should work correctly after that....

Not just the dial on the smoker, but also the iGrill app.
