I have a Charbroil H20 Smoker and getting the temp up to 325F is quite difficult (maybe impossible. I can maintain 225F-235F pretty good, but have trouble getting it over 250F. I bought the smoker for $5 at a flea market as a beginner smoker. I did some modifications, but that was be able to lift the unit off the charcoal so i can for with the heat and not have to take it apart.
Do you think it would be fine to place it on the smoker at 225F until the internal temp is like 165ish, then foil until it hits my temp? When I foil, if it a good ideas to add some sort of mop in the foil?
