TJohnson.....I smoked with your hickory for 3.75 hours at:
Outside temp: 68-76 degrees
Relative Humidity: 38-45%
Smoker inside: 60-80degrees, (smoker was in the shade)
I did end up filling it with dust all the way up but not over flowing about and hour in, and about and hour left I lit the middle for a last hurrrrah of smoke :).....there towards the end it got hotter, I think partly because I lit the middle, it stayed in the low 70 on avg. Thanks for making such a great product.
