This is my version of the perfect Char Griller with side fire box - Page 4

I see you have separator "wall's" in the box you made, tell me how it works please, also saw some"red" sealant could you give the make and model as I am looking for some non toxin high temp silicone for same purpose and to fasten a door gasket/smoke rope.

That was the 1st incarnation of the basket. I actually took the dividers out and replaced the bottom with expanded metal for better airflow. It now has one divider. I put the charcoal on one side and the smoking wood on the other side. Here is a more recent pic. Seems to work pretty well.

Sdh600, I'm trying to build the same angle iron all around the bottom chamber edge of mine just like yours in picture 8.
Did u use half inch angle? Since it's an L shaped piece, how do you mount it to the cooker? The way yours look make it seems like a U channel piece.
Did you weld it on? .......


..... Ok never mind, i read further and saw more pictures. It's clear now.

If you dont mind me asking, what is that thing called that you used to cover the hole for the stock thermometer? How would I search for something like that?

Epic mods on this grill!!! I have one of these and I did many of the same mods, but the way you made the gasket channel to seal the lid is fantastic. I am not a welder unfortunately so I see if I can do it with screws and bolts. Hat off to you sir!

My other observation with this grill is the firebox is also very leaky, which makes the input vent much less effective. Have you thought about sealing that door as well?

how about a cup holder?  Just kidding, I'm going to utilize some of these mods.
