Give me some heat!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a GrillPro vertical smoker. It has (3) vents - two at the bottom (left and right) and one at the top on the back. What is the best venting position(s) to increase the heat?

I always keep the top vent fully open to keep the smoke moving. If not, there's a chance of getting stale smoke which can lead to a bitter taste on the meat. The lower vents are used to control the heat. Fully open equals hottest or fastest burn. Fully closed equals coolest or slowest burn. It's all about oxygen supply. Good luck!

Open all the vents to increase the heat.

Keep the smoker closed as much as possible.
