Figured I would ask this in a new thread. I have been doing research on Mods for the SNP and find that around 80% of the mods require tools that I dont have, such as metal working machines. Is there anyone that hasnt added any Mods and gets away with great smoking results? I do plan on buying a charcoal basket and adding the Temp gauges and Temp probe for the meat since they are readily available. I just find all the other mods like the baffle, heat plates to be too much work for a guy like me, unless a company made these already, then I could simply purchase and set inside. The previous owner of the SNP I now own has mentioned to me several times that he never had problems with any of the meat he smoked. But I also dont think that he was into smoking big briskets or any big meat like I plan to do. I have yet to fire up the SNp and just try it, but I felt I would ask incase there are any people here that dont use mods and have advice. Its a different level for me and I need all the input I can get. =) Thanks..
