So, I had absolutely no need for a new grill, but my sister had the opposite opinion.  She felt that I did not have enough surface area on my Weber (made the decision when she saw me trying to cook for my sons second birthday party).  I only cook large quantities maybe twice a year.  Anyway, she bought me this grill:

Twin Chamber Charcoal Grill

 

It seems like a solid charcoal grill that could be used for smoking by itself, or with a couple of mods. 

 

Does anyone have experiences with this grill?

I have seen them in Sam's and the grill is a nice one for charcoal. Now it is alittle hard to smoke with but I could do it. Now it does have a plate that is supposed to section each half off but if you don't use it it becme much easier to smoke and good meal with it. I used to have that grill at the pool house and cooked alot out there in the summers.

I know it's new, so I'm not going to make a bunch of changes to it yet.  I will use it for a while and plan in the meantime.  Here is what I am thinking so far:

 

1.  The shelves on the sides can be removed.  I can remove a shelf from one side and install a side firebox.  Might be able to use it more as a smoker then.

 

2.  I peviously built a rotisserie for my 18.5" weber.  I can take the parts that I use for that and figure a way to mount it on this grill.  I'm sure it would require some cutting, so careful planning is needed.

 

3.  Build a vault that I can set on the remaining shelf (when desired and removed when not in use) that can attach to the existing disc vent.  This could be used for cold smoking.

I've seen those at Sam's. The thing I really like is the ability to raise & lower the charcoal bed. Smoking with it may present a bit of a challenge, but it sounds like your up for it.

This is the best grill Ive ever owned!  I love everything about it.
I have cooked just about everything and anything on it including smoking.
I will never buy another grill, as long as I still have this one!

I have had this grill for12 years and it is the best grill ever. Can anyone tell me where to find anything near the quality?
