I'm new to the Smoking meat world and in need of some help.
I recently purchased a little Gasmate Smoker & Grill from BBQ's Galore,(https://www.barbequesgalore.com.au/gasmate-smoker-grill
) just to see if i could get into smoking meat, the issue is have is that i can't get my smoker to go over 100 Degrees when i have the Water pan in see below:
Coals (Heat beads) - Red hot > started through Chimney
Water Pan - Have tried with a cup of water and filling the pan up (tried hot/cold water)
All Vents Open
Thermometer (built into the smoker) shows between 80-100 degrees,
As soon as i take the water pan out, i can get it to rise to 150 degrees, Surely i'm doing something wrong?
do i need to modify my smoker to get more air?
Thanks for the help in advance
