OK, so would appreciate some more help from the experts here - to add to the knowledge I have gained over the past few months. Want to smoke sausage on my 14" WSM using charcoal - I've been jury-rigging an electric hot plate in order to maintain the lower (130F - 170F) temperatures, and adding smoke using the AMAZN smoke tube. This works, but...... Typical outdoor temperatures lately are 45 - 65 degrees F, with negligible wind. I have tried using a modified minion method, but have been unable to maintain 130F - temp usually climbs rather quickly, and am unable to control it. Any suggestions?
