Well I did the first butts on my new smoker I built and they are very disappointing! They sat in the rub and injection for two days before I was able to smoke them so I thought they would have lots of flavor but they don't and they have Zero to little or no smoke ring. I want to run this by you guys and see what you think. I don't have a seal around my door so most of my smoke is escaping out of the door so I am thinking that is why my meat isn't getting any smoke flavor. I have smoked twice on this new smoker and both times they meat has little to no smoke flavor. Also as I brought up in a different thread I have my air intake in the bottom right of my smoker and the air exit is in the top rear of my smoker. Do you guys see any issues with this? I know normally you will have the intake in the bottom right and the exit in the top left but I couldn't because of my grate brackets so I just put them in the top back. I would think that the air should come in the bottom then rise up and exit out the back just fine and flavor my meat nicely. This is where I think the leaky door is screwing me. Also I have my wood chip pan to close to the propane flame so they are burning up really fast I think this is also contributing to my lack of smoke in my meat. Sorry this got kind of long but I wanted to run this by you guys and see what you think.
