    Hi guys,

    As you can guess I am new to smoking and finding keeping my temperature up a bit of a problem. I have a foxhunter vertical smoker and I am struggling to get it to settle over 175...... Any tips or tricks? I am from the uk so the outside temperate is far from ideal but really couldn't wait to try out my new smoker. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciate. 😊

    Welcome to the site Jak.  I'm not familiar with your smoker but did find a link to Foxhunter at Amazon.

    Does this look like your smoker?



    If so;  I don't see anything inherently wrong with it.  Was it windy while you were having trouble with your temperatures?

    I assume that your charcoal was good quality and dry?

    Hi Jak just looked at the link to your smoker.

    On the bottom half, is there any control air vents similar to the ones n the lid?

    I think the fire is starved of Oxygen.
