holding steady temp

Discussion in 'Propane Smokers' started by fcb63, Jan 10, 2010.

  1. I'm finding it challenging to hold a steady temp on my sv today on my first time smoking. The temp here in ma. is around 20 right now. I guess that is the problem. I'm not sure where to set the vents. I can't close the vents completely unless I bend the tabs. Just wondering if I should try that. Any ideas?

    You don't want to close them completely anyhow - you need some airflow through the unit.

    Close the vents the most you can and tweak the burner.

    My first question is what are the winds doing? Block the wind that affects temps more than anything

    Also if your water pan gets empty this will cause the temps to rise.
