    I'm just under 7700 ft and temps of 350 are no problem in my 18.5 WSM.

    I put a big terracotta saucer in my water pan and run lump.

    Yeah, here's the deal. Nothing works at high altitude without modifying it.
    I live at 8500 ft. Didn't even waste my time or money on a high priced unit.
    Found a leftover smoker at Wal-Mart for $30. Now for that price no worries about modifying it.
    I drilled a hole in the fire pan an installed an air diffuser which I attach to an air compressor.
    Regulated to about 3-4 psi I can hold 250 deg all day.
