Question about Char-Broil Charcoal Water Smoker 4654301
Having difficulty maintaining heat in the ideal range on the gauge and cooking food up to temperature. we have to finish things in the oven. Gauge stays in the warm range. We do know that the gauge does work because we lit behind it with a lighter and it moves fine up to hot range. once the charcoal is in white ash range, we add more charcoal like it says in the instruction manual and open little door. We can see the flame but the gauge never gets up to ideal range. please help
I have the charcoal brinkman smoke n grill, had the same problem until i found brinkmansmokermods.com
the grill they are working on is a little different from mine but i used the same idea and added 4 holes in the bottom of the charcoal bowl with a 9/16 bit. This will fix your temp problems but will give you another one......the charcoal ash falls on the ground. To fix this i went to Lowes and bought a 24" water heater pan to sit the grill in to catch all of the ash.
Also I found the weber charcoal grate at my Ace Hardware here in Cypress Tx.

Forget the charcoal and place an electric hot plate in bottom. the cord will fit through air holes. put the soaked wood chips in a castiron skillet, then place the hot water pan above it
