Smoking steelhead salmon- fire problems
I came back from Eggtoberfest excited to start a bunch of new cooks- today I planned three (smoked fish, then crank up the heat and cook stuffed meatballs and lamb chops). I am starting with a smoked steelhead and I cleaned out my egg first to be sure I could have good air flow, loaded it up with various sizes of lump in layers alternating with soaked alder chips, and lit it with fire starters. My problem is that I am trying to get to a dome temp of just under 200 and no matter what I do it seems I can only find two temps: 250 and "fire out"
I know my gasket is essentially blown and I am guessing that is the problem- any ideas? Thanks!!
