Hotplate smoker cabinet build not hot enough


Recommended Posts

Basically I have a small hot smoker cabinet I build based on youtube/online plans that of course all come from the states. (pic below, it has a roof now) And for the life of me I cant get it above 100c every American source I can find says it should work with the hotplate I have in there and the second one I've tried (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08NHFNM23/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) but it doesn's so I'm stumped.... I wonder if there it's a uk/eu safty thing that keeps it from overheating???? Any tips for modifications or products for a fix. All walls are at least 5 cm thick and very insulative. The air/vent holes are small and mostly covered sooo I dont think it's that. I've run it empty and so I know I"m not just overfilling it. Ummmm I think thats it. 


Thanks in advance
