hi. i just purchased a chargriiler TRIO a month ago and ive been having a blast trying it out. i havnt had any disasters yet but every week it just gets better n better. as we speak i have some babybacks smokin. when i bought it i didnt know JACK about what i was doin. i did alot of research on this forum as a guest and other forums to learn the basics. i did the smoker mod last week with the lowes basket. i also flipped the ash tray and did the foil trick at the ends for a baffel. sofar so good. i am still curious what the smoke stack mod is tho. what purpose does it serve?? be prepared for a lot more noob questions in the future.
