Can’t seem to get above 190. Weber charcoal mountain smoker. All vents now fully open. yes, used water..but this hasn’t happened before. Sing lump charcoal. Ps: it’s windy out there
The turkey is a heat sink. The water is a heat sink. Don't know how big a WSM you have, but a couple gallons of water and a 14 lb turkey equals almost a 31 lb heat sink. Stop using the water pan with poultry, ESPECIALLY in the wind.
My SWM hated with and rain or snow. have you sealed the door and mid sections? leaking air can cause issues with temp control. gasket kits are cheap and easy.
