    does anybody own one of these? i do and i cannot get the temps to stay anywhere plus i have to have it really really hot to get any smoke to start. especially in the summer...might as well not even think about smokin then. just wonderin if anybody else has had this problem.

    Are you using the water pan? That helps stabilize temps. I always throw in a handful of chips along with a chunk. The chips start smoldering quicker.

    yes i am using the water pan....i just can't get it to work right when the temps are higher. it works pretty good when its like -10 or so. i'm gonna need to figure this one out i'm going to be movin into an apartment soon and it would be perfect for the balcony or garage. and i will nlot give up on smokin meat when i move...
