I have a vertical gas smoker which has only one vent near the top on the back side. With the gas set to low and the vent wide open I can not keep it at 225 wile cooking two hole chickens. I tried adding cold water to the water pan, closing the propane bottle to reduce the flame and cracking the door. None has worked with any consistency for me. Can I just cut a whole in the top and attach a pipe with some type of cover to allow the extra heat to get out? If so how would you do it.
