Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker and Grill. It is too hot. Should my first try at a solution be making sure the water pan is full and not having too much wood in the bottom? If that doesn’t work, what should my second try be? Less wood? Fewer rocks? Offset the bottom chamber on the firebox so heat (and smoke) leaks out before it moves up to the meat? Keep the side access door open (this allows you to put in more wood and refill the water pan while smoking)? Offset the top lid so heat (and smoke) leaks out?
