    Default Char-Griller Duo with SFB

    Here is the best of three worlds - gas grill, charcoal grill, offset smoker -
    the Char-Griller Duo with Side Fire Box - about $300 if you look around.

    Looks like a sweet unit, Mike! Thanks for givin' us a peek!

    I'm curious about the smoker side. I know a lot of folks have modified their CGs with baffles, chimney extensions, and the like. Do you have any mods like that? Have you seen a need to?

    I have extended the stack down to grill level with flex aluminum dryer duct and a hose clamp. I raised the charcoal firepan as high as it would go to sorta act as a "tuning plate' and help spread the heat & smoke around.
    I also built an expanded metal basket to go in the firebox to put charcoal in. Allows airflow under the charcoal.
    I've seen some deflectors added above the opening between the firebox and smoker, but I have not done that.

    When you raised the firepan, did you also turn it upside down? I've heard it acts like a built-in baffle, so that also helps with temps.

    On mine, I had the charcoal pan upside down and it worked well. I have since put in a baffle and some tuning plates but have yet to fire it off and tune it. I'll try to get some pics of what I've done soon.

    Saw one of those at the local Lowe's... Neat concept.

    Here is my baby!
    The first pic was this past summer, right after I put it together. (yes, I did it by myself in about two hours!)
    Second pic was one of my first cooks on it. A couple of butts, low and slow for about 6-8 hrs I think.
    Third pic is how it has looked most of the winter!
    I need to order a cover for it, but money has been tight lately. I really love my duo! I also still have my CG Pro as well.
