Took a weekend off

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by whitepony99, Nov 8, 2010.

  1. So I have had my smoker 2 months and cooked on it every other weekend. This has caused my wife to talk me into taking a weekend off so I decided to look into a few of my issues I have been having. 

    Issue 1: My feelings that my temp gauges in the grill are not reading true. I have these:


    So I went from this back to my original gauges they are these


    Secondly I fixed my charcoal basket issue by hacking off the top of my basket. This gave me ash clearance for long cooks and helps to keep my coals together. 

    Lastly I added a cookie sheet deflector into the cooking chamber.

    I will post pics of the last 2 mods once it warms up sometime today. 

    Now Im ready to start cooking again and hopefully get better results. Just need some ideas on what to cook now. In 2 weeks comes my big turkey smoke for thanksgiving

    I guess the wife didn't say anything about working on the smoker now did she.
