    Default Sucessful chargriller mods

    Hi again guys,

    I found out something today. Learning about a new toy is kinda like having a new woman in your life. You have to know and investigate everything before you can say that you understand it. Mods aren't the only answer. I found out that a lot of my problem was having the correct settings on your intake vent but more important was the controlling of the cooking heat across the grate. I held this trial run to 230* to 240* for app three hr, buy closing down the exhaust app. 1/3. Worked for me. These are the final results re: the mods, I hope, and the next pics wil be some cooks. E.T. Sorry this is so long.

    Wire mesh around grate was the only gavalnized item.

    Grate inserted. 3 1/2" bottom clearance.

    Ash catcher.

    Increased space entering cook chamber.

    Another angle.

    Baffle in smoker. Not totally attached yet

    Another angle.

    Lengthwise and using inverted drip pan to divert smoke to the exhaust end.

    FIRE in the HOLE. Time to light up.

    Let there be smoke.

    Just closed firebox door and opened vent. Surprise, it works. Chicken thighs tomorrow.
