I read a lot of the posts on modding the Char-Grill Smoking Pro, but got a little confused on some of the ideas to do. In searching the web I found this little guide on how to mod the smoker. It may have been posted here before or maybe not, though I couldn't fid it. The pics and easy to follow directions make it real easy. And for me especially I need that. Hope this helps http://deejayssmokepit.net/Downloads_files/CharGrilleMods.pdf I know it was written by a member of the forum, and maybe hosted by another member not sure. Hopefully they won't get angry eith me posting this.
