    OK Joe Highland-Cannot get temp up

    So I fill up the basket with charcoal briquettes, let them burn for a while and then add wood. I can see part of my mistake may be that I don’t use enough wood.

    Automatic Temp Control

    I currently use a Char Broil Oklahoma Joe Offset Smoker. I had the dampest time with temperature control in my first season using it last year.
