I have a Masterbuilt 20051311 recently purchased here in Thailand. With the unit I bought boxes of wood chips/blocks imported from the USA [expensive!!!]. The problem is I cannot get the wood to smoke. If I have it at a high temperature 400F - no problem but as most smoking is done at around 220F [or fish at 160F] the wood just chars a little producing almost no smoke. I have tried setting the wood on fire [in the frying pan] on my .stove top but as soon as I put it back into the smoker it goes out. I have also tried using a base of charcoal but again with the same result. I keep the vent fully open.
What am I doing wrong???
Any suggestions / solutions much appreciated.
