I have had an ECB for years with mixed results and as result of reading comments on this forum i bought a new bullet smoker with vents and a temp guage , its a a Pro Q , not sure that means anything to you but thats the name of the product imported into the UK.
Problem is even with all vents open i can't get it above 200 unless the water pan boils dry ! This was on a typical English summer's day 65 degrees , occasional rain and breezy !
I use Brickettes as i find lumpwwod charcoal burns hot then the temp drops of really quickly rather than giving a steady burn
Any suggestions ?
Next smokin' session is saturday week when some friends are coming around to watch the England USA game in the World Cup . By the way it's called football not soccer
