After reading much about the Chargriller Smokin' Pro I went out and bought one. I wanted a little more cooking area than my present little offset offers which was the main reason for my purchase. Much has been written about them and the various mods performed on them.I am in the process of doing some of them now. During the course of sratchin' ma haid an' consuming of fair amount of intelectual stimulants ( Coors Light ) I got to thinking, "why not try to make my smoker into a convection type oven" For those of you not familiar with a convection oven the principal is very simple. Air Flow. Air flow within the cooking chamber to to eliminate temperture differences within the cooking chamber. I think it would work well provuding of couse the fan does not impart any positive or negative air flow to the firebox or chimmney. Heat would be another factor as to the mounting of the fan motor, Specifically inside or outside. My idea is still in the light bulb stage, so I thought I would toss it out there and let the games begin.
