hi! guy and gals of SMF. I have a char broil offset smoker that you buy from walmart. well i have done some mods i have gotten for here and other websites. i have lowered my stack to the grill, i have had a firebox built and i closed off half of the air damper for the firebox, and also i closed down the opening between the fire chamber and the smoking chamber. next i buying a heat plate to go in the bottom of the smoking chamber when i get paid next to even out my temps. the problem i'm having right now is getting my temp. to get above 200 deg. in the smoking chamber without using a fan. this will be my second year using this smoker. last year i had to use a box fan to keep the temp between 225 and 250. anyone got any ideas??????
