    I have a SuperPro w/ sfb.

    Mods already made:
    • Extended the stack to grate level using flex hose.
    • Lined the bottom of the grill/smoker with aluminum printing plates
    Future mods include:
    • Raising the coal grate in the sfb to allow me to remove the drawer and dump the ashes.
    • Build a coal basket
    • Possibly installing a thermometer at grate level

    What are aluminum printing plates? Got any pix, and where do you get them?

    Has anybody seen the Smokin' Outlaw model, and if so, how does it stack up performance wise?

    You would get them from a local commercial printer.

    Well the printer will be able to identify them for you but they are a dull aluminum plate that will have the image of what the plate printed etched on it. It will be a little thinner or about as thick as coil aluminum depending on the quality and run length of the plate material. Size depends on the size of the printing press it is intended for for example a 40" press which is pretty common, the plate will be about 41 X 32" ish.

    Smokin Bill knows what he's talkin about!

    I got them when I worked at the newspaper. The ones that I got were waste plates meaning they were unused because of some sort of a defect. They didn't have any chemical coating on them.

    I am guessing that our plates were about .050 thick and flexible.

    Tried to google for info, but it's hard to find.

    20 years here. I just got out a few months ago. I repaired Goss Offsets. Had 4 presses, each with 9 units of Headliners and 2 Colorliner 4 high towers.

    I started in junior high school running a press/duplicator for the school. Continued in production, camera, stripper, some bindery to help out; then went into management. I became sort of the Lee Iacocca of printing companies. Took one company from 2mm/year to 15mm in about 7 years. Presses were Heidelberg's, Crossfield Image Assembler for computer stripping, stripped on Bacher Tables.
