Good afternoon: So I picked up my brinkmann split door on Saturday, put it together and started a fire today at lunch to cure it. The only "mod" I did was purchase the wok pan from home depot. Anyways, full chimney of charcoal and it burned at 375 for about 45 mins. Now I've been just feeding it small amounts of charcoal to maintain the heat for the desired 3 hours. So now the temp has dropped down to 300 for about the last 1.5 hours. I guess my question is how do I get the temp lower? I can't smoke this high can I? my only thought is to put less charcoal it in, but then I'll need to feed it like every 30 - 45 mins to maintain temp. I did the cure with all the vents closed and no water. I used Cowboy lump for my fuel, the only other stuff they sold was mesquite flavored briquetts.
