OKay I did my first smoke with my BCE. The only MODS so far is to add a grate in the fire pit thingy. And to add a much improved thermo. Anyway I smoked a whole chic.. came out great however the temp stayed close to 300 the whole time. In fact it stayed that way for close to five hours before it began to drop off. Though this worked out okayish for chicken, it wouldnt for anything else. So I am wondering what I can do to better control the temp. I'm guessing that making a sliding cover for the hole that is on the bottom might work. Also how about a top vent, as well as better sealing the top around the sides. Any thought would be appriciated.
