Closing Flue Damper?
Seems like I read somewhere that closing the flue damper is not a good idea. I'm sure it was in a smoking how-to book. I have trouble keeping the temp hot enough for poultry on my offset and was wondering about this. I've always kept it open but am wondering if that's part of the problem. I'll be smoking another turkey this coming week for the crew at work for a belated Thanksgiving potluck and will have a chance to try running with the damper closed.
