    Hi my name is matt. I recently bought a smoke hollow no.5 gas smoker, and have been having some trouble controling temp and moisture. The temp shoots up to 300*, and the water pan seems to be too far away from the heat source to properly evaporate. I was wondering if anyone can help out on some ideas to adjust the prob.

    Had same problem w/ mine when I first got. It seem ta settle down after a couple of uses though (valve working itself in I think). Water will evaporate where it is at cookin temps. Any closer and the water will boil..not lookin ta steam meat. Hope this helps... my 2cts.

    Also...Don't trust the temp gauge on the door, they are usually way off!
