Did you make a post by chance on the mods you did? My main issue is all of the spots on it where heat is lost. There are so many holes on each side of the cooking chamber as well as underneath the SFB. I have seen before on a couple mods where ppl take aluminum foil to create a better seal on the lid. My issue is, that when the lid is closed, it doesnt go flush.....the lid is shifted to the right about 3/4". I've got so many questions!! What did you use for the baffle plates? Right now I just have the charcoal tray flipped over inside the cooking chamber to act as a baffle. I want to move the stack to the right side for reverse flow. Any ideas or tips would be EXTREMELY appreciated. Thank you in advance for the help!
No, not yet. One of these days I should post a thread with all of my mods. I mean, yeah, the CG Pro is cheap....no doubt. REAL drafty, if you know what I mean, and super thin steel. But, with a few mods, it's not bad. I've made lots o' Q on this thing, and the results are spectacular. I think the best mod, by far, was the stoker. I might post a thread about that, but, after seeing some of the other stokers, mine might be a bit overkill and a bit crazy. But, damn, it works awesome.
Now that I have "Reefer Madness", though (pictures in my signature below), I'm afraid the CG Pro might sit idle. Kept as backup, if you will. I did one test with the "Reefer" and the results were great, and uses way less fuel.
