    So I had lots of smoke temp issues today nothing I did could get the temp to drop below 250 and stay there for any length of time.. Was a very frustrating smoke... I ended up doing a modified 3-2-1 method and actually ended up pulling them about 1 1/2 into the wrap and putting them on the grates again and basting them with some Hickory/Burbon sauce I had squirreled away in the cupboards.

    Fresh out of the fridge for another quick shake of rub...

    Ready to rest for a bit while I finish up the sides.

    Sliced up sides are still heating

    Chicken breasts that I did up for the wife. I tossed them in at the 3 hour mark and then foiled them in the pan until the IT came up to 160.

    Temps were all over the place as stated earlier.. Wood was about 60% Alder.. 10% Hickory.. and 30% Apple

    Still looks, good. HAve you got an ideal of what caused your temp problems, wind, temps, etc..?

  3. Still great looking ribs. Was wind an issue?

    I talked talked to a couple of co-workers that have the same smoker last night and I think I have it narrowed down to the regulator that smoke hollow puts on their gas hoses being way oversized for a smoker to lawsuit proof them.. They both use the tank valve to feather the amount of propane getting to the burner.

    I was reading through the needle valve mod threads and found an adjustable regulator that I'm going to order after the first of the year and toss on there to see if that fixes the issue. As the smoker sits right now once it warms up it will be nothing more than a verticle grill.

    The needle valve does work extremely well. Good luck and keep us posted.
