I'm a newbie so bare with me please.
I got a MasterBuilt Model 20051311 for Christmas .
always wanted a smoker but never pulled the trigger. My wife did it for me this Christmas.
The Tuesday after Christmas I did some ribs and the temp was way to high and I had to tend it for 4 hours finally propped open the bottom door about a inch. the ribs came out pretty good even with the problems I had.
Now for some back ground. I run my propane from a 100 gal tank regulated to 11" to the house and a stub out behind the patio where I have my BBQ and smoker. I have run my Weber 6 burner S.S. BBQ for about 11 years straight off the stub out with no problems.
I went down to my pipe supply and got a adjustable Regulator now it wont get hot .
I have a 16 mph wind and its 42 degrees out with a wind chill of 41. I made some wind blocks out of plywood and have the wind blocked on 3 sides.
