Masterbuilt Dual Fuel mod

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Someone suggested making this mod to the masterbuilte dual fuel smoker, so I thought I would give it a try on my first smoke using charcoal.

 

The mod was to cover the burner hole with a pie tin in order to get better control of the heat, by using the vents, as intended.

 

 

I couldn't liberate a pie tin, so I substitued a couple of layers of heavy duty aluminum foil, to cover the burner hole.

Testing one more mod for the dual fuel. Blocking off the burner hole to get better control of the temperatures when using charcoal.

 

 

Then, I loaded up my charcoal plate thusly.  A hefty panful of unlit charcoal, topped off with about 1/3 load of charcoal from my starter chimney.

Proceded to smoke the St. Louis style ribs for a few hours at around 250 degrees, only added coals once in the last hour of smoking.

700

 

 

Here's the load, with the frying pan chip holder mod.

Frying pan on coals with the wood chips.

 

 

I got great control of the smoking temp using only the vents.  The immediate temp when starting up was around 350, but I was able to get it down to 250 very quickly.
