Noob from Southern Cali

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone I am new to the smoking world.  I just bought a Char-Griller Super Pro a few days ago.  I normally just slow cook meats on my friends for about 2 hours with coals and soaked wood chips.  I have a few questions about the Char-Griller Super Pro. 

 

Im thinking about picking up the SFB this weekend...or can I get away with out it and use a charcoal basket on the vent side and move the meat to the far left and slow cook it by adding chunks of wood one top of the coals for smoke?

 

I came up on some Pecan Wood chunks and will be using that.  I might go get some oak to go with it. 

 

Any thoughts would be great.

 

Thank You

I am near LAX.

 

Thank you all!

 

This weekend I plan on installing the SFB, making a custom made charcoal basket, dryer duct mod, and maybe a baffle depending on how saucy I feel.  Im going to use the original main Charcoal holder and flip it upside down and move it all the way up.

 

Rain is going to be around this weekend but I will do a test run xmas weekend!

I know that area well - I was raised in El Segundo and lived in Torrance, ReCondo Beach, Westchester and Santa Monica.

Good luck with the mods

Ahhh okay the beach cities!  Yup that is where I be.  The mods went good, I got the dyer duct on, ran two more temp gauges on each side of the barrel lid, got the SFB on, and made a charcoal basket.  It was some what a PITA to get the knockouts out but it ended up good.  Let see what happens with this rain, i hope to get something going for xmas day!

Good luck with that! Family are always the best guinea pigs for a new smoker. Your mods sound good. And the worst thing that happens is you have to eat "okay" smoked meat (which is still better than any other meat!).
