Due to the small volume of the Sidekick Smoker, it is mainly designed for maintaining temperatures 225°F and above.

In order to maintain lower temperatures, additional ventilation is required to allow the heat to escape better.

Also, unlike larger applications, the controller will not be able to maintain the set temperature within 5-10°.
