Very little smoke, no flavor.
When I go to purge, a little smoke comes out of the valve. If I had a leak, wouldn't it come out someplace else?
This is getting frustrating...
No not necessarily, if you had a leak while smoking you would be sucking in too much air mixed with the smoke and it would be thin. It has to be either a leak, or not enough heat. Try a standard bowl with 3 ashed over coals in a triangle pattern, I would even throw a windcover on just to see if you CAN get decent smoke. That combo should quickly and easily give you very thick smoke, and will get harsh very fast. But it would show you need more heat...........
