greetings from South Carolina

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. I've been "Brining" in here the last couple of days trying to absorb some tips before i do my first smoke. I have a Silver Smoker and was looking for info on it when I came across this site. It seems to be populated by people who are willing to help others improve their craft so I thought I'd join today. I've been trying to learn about some of the baffle and tuning mods. Are they necessary to start out with? Which is better spaced plates or holes drilled in a single plate and has anyone used a design that allows them to be removed so it can be used as a grill also? I have not had time to do a thorough search yet.

 

Thanks,

Martin

Hi Martin, 

The mods aren't necessary to begin with but you will benefit from them greatly.

Welcome to SMF Grillin...... Like raptor said the mods aren't necessary to begin...I made some mods on my offset.... I have done some advaced modifications and have a reverse flow plate installed for more even heat.... You can get some aluminum flashing form Lowe's and start with a easy mod by placing it up inside your stack and lowering the smokers exhaust down to the grate to hold more heat...... You can see in a pic in the link the stack is down to the grate......

 

Heres the link to my mods       http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/110134/braunfel-reverse-flow-modification

 

Good luck and happy smoking

 

Joe
