I have the same grill and I just wanted to know why you added the extention to the chimmney on the charcoal side.  Am I missing a secret somewhere?  Food looks amazing btw

Since smoke rises, without the extension, the natural path the smoke would take would be straight up from the fire box, to the left and out of the chamber, bypassing the cooking level and your food.  By extending the damper down to grate level with a piece of dryer vent (bought from home depot for less than 10 dollars) you cause the smoke to fill from the top of the chamber, down to the grate level before it leaves through the damper.  This now gets more smoke to grate level and more smoke on your meat.

What other mods have you done ? Did you install tuning plates ? How do you control the heat over the entire area ?

My brother has the same grill and is wanting to do more smoking.

I did the same thing with the charcoal tin. Evened it out nicely

So the charcoal holder is inside the grill, under the cooking surface ?

Yeah its a curved bottom with a heavy grate attached to it, so I flipped it upside down so it curves upward towards the cooking grate.
