    Help! I've got a SFB my dad made. I'm having trouble keeping a uniform heat when I smoke.. It's hot on the box side when my therno is just right. I only have the one thermo. Is there any way to make the heat more uniform? I like smoking meaty goodness, but right now it's such a hassle. I do ok when I put the meat on the end opposite the FB. Too close and the meat burns.
     
  2. I'm not sure what type of smoker you got, but I tell you a few things that helped me.

    1. A baffle from www.kickassbbqsouth.com
    2. New thermometers at grate level
    3. Charcoal basket from http://yokeup.net/XXLBaskets.html

    My side opposite fire box is about 5 degrees hotter than fire box side.
