I put another thermometer in the fire box and it was reading around 400 degrees F.
I did not do a pit calculator
so i hope its not too small.
i tried to open the door of the firebox to let in more oxygen but it seemed to let the heat right out of the door so i couldnt really tell a difference as far as the temp in the tank goes. i think i will need some more holes lower on the firebox to let in air.
I will have to get exact measurements when I get home from work
do you think that the low air temps has a lot to do with it? like i said it was only around 30 degrees F yesterday and windy. i did pull it into the garage to block most of the wind
Thanks for the replies everyone
