Hello everyone, My name is Jewell and I am somewhat new to the forum. I have been very impressed with the information, resources and input from forum members regarding the great hobby of smoking. Not being a pro... I have much to learn and look forward to continuing my research while trying to improve my skill level. Right now I use a Outdoor Seasons Hiland HIL3041-SMK BBQ Smoker With Side Firebox Grill and have a few questions. Most pressing, how can you maintain a consistent 250 degree temperature with a smoker that has no temperature gauge? Very frustrating at times... Thanks again to everyone for making this forum such a great source of information. I am very excited to be a member.
