I built a reverse flow smoker and my problem is that I can't get the temps up past 200. I don't know if my vent holes are too small for air to the fire or that the opening in the reverse flow plate is too big (I read that in this forum) or if I am not using enough chimneys (2) or what. I don't have access to fruit wood so I am trying to find some hard woods or avocado. Again, thanks for all the help and postings. Oh yeah, my first attempt was properly moved to the Roll Call section. I should have thought of that. Enjoy the long weekend!!!
