Did you check EVERYTHING?

Id clean it inside and out, top to bottom, and perform a visual inspection. Id check for damage or anything out of the ordinary. Is air leaking somewhere? Did it rust through anywhere? Also, try a different thermometer to make sure that isnt an issue or check the existing one (ice water, boiling water if it has that range) adjusted for altitude.

Try a load of charcoal to rule out the wood.

Only things I can think of.
