    Default cg outlaw mods

    I found this pdf somewhere on the internet. I think I am gonna try to do them all and some fiberglass gasket. All except the fire box. I am curious what everyone thinks of these?

    That's really nice but also a lot of work. I have cooked a lot a really good Q on a my CG with much simpler mods. I did the flexible hose on the stack. Getting the exhaust down near grate level really makes a difference. Instead of installing rails & tuning plates, I used the cooking grates that came with the firebox & the charcoal tray. I put the grates across the bottom of the cooking chamber then flipped over charcoal tray & set it on top. The curve of the tray matched with the curve of the firebox opening. By adjusting the gap between the tray & firebox opening, I could get temps within 5-10* across the cooking chamber.

    Those hood therms are nice, but I never look at them. I use remote probe therms because I want to know the temp in the middle of the cooking grate not the edge. I like his firebox grate. I used a shaker basket I found in the bbq dept of a big box store. It fit in the firebox & kept the charcoal raised enough for good air flow.

    BTW, for just a little more that what you will spend on those mods you could probably do mine & build a UDS. then you got two fine cooking machines. Since I got my UDS, I have only fired up the CG a couple of times.

    I would agree with southga .. bring the exhaust down snd flip the charcoal pan etc. I also agree on the drum. I usually only use my sfb on my duo to smoke cheese. But if you are hard set on going with the mods they will definitely work.
