    I turn it on high for about 60 seconds, then down to where I know 225 is. In less than 15 min, I'm setting at 225 with a nice TBS.

    I am slipless; but since you mentioned it, I do have to say, in the Iowa gathering pictures I did notice you have panty line. Have you ever considered wearing No-Nonsense liners !!!

    well today tried to get temps dailed in for smoke tomarrow. I can get my temps around 225 to 250 easy with the added valve mod but when I get to the 225 range my wood stops smoking or just have to look real hard to see it any ideas? This smoking thing is getting frustating.

    ?????? not being a smart *** here, but you DO know what wood smoke smells like, correct?

    you have the gourmet right?......you using a chip pan?, chips, chunks?

    or maybe the wood is just used up........and you need to add more.........you do realize, you have to add wood as the smoke goes along don't you?????

    Mods are fine tune valve added, cut 1" off wood pan stand legs, using 8x8 cake pan for wood. Should I use chips or chunks. Chips I think would smoke easier correct.

    i only use chunks, tho sometimes, if they get to large, i split em up some.......chips burn up to fast for me............

    I use both, ifin all I got is chips, then chips it is, ifin I got both, I'll mix some chips in with the chunks, chunks will burn longer then chips, but chips will get goin quicker. That smoke towards the end is gonna be nigh onta invisible, ifin ya open the door, yall will see just a hint a the smoke. Besure ta shake yer pan ever now an again ta keep the wood in good contact with the pan.
