    temperature control issues

    Hi all,

    Wondering someone might be abke to throw in some insight.

    So i have built a range od smokers as some of you may knoW. Im having some temperature issues which i am sure are down to inexperiance.

    So heres the issue. If i use bigger logs. I get some great heat. Well to much really. So i close up the firbox inlet letting in only about half the amount of air. It does well like that but them the coals go down so much its like barely having a fire at all but them they seem to Fall through the fire rack its like a very small amounr amount of coals to maintain a 225 degree heat.

    I then started using really small chunks This method worked great but had to put small chunks on like every 20 min. It was a ting fire that gave me the best heat.

    I have now tried bigger pieces again so i dont have to be there every minute but the temp os way to high and now have to wait till its died right down again.

    I cant seem to keep a super consistent temp without monitoring it constatntly.

    I use a rwverse flow 21 inch smoker. Any ideas.

    Thanks sam

    I would try having a fire pit with coals burning that you can shovel in to your pit. This way you're not starting a big fire every time you put logs in. Best of luck.
