post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have modified the wheels and extended the chimney

fixing two of the shortcomings of the char griller smokin pro

now on to fire control

what will have the greater effect,


sealing the unit. or insulating it

Sealing.  It will help keep the heat and smoke where it belongs.  Insulating would largely only help in varying conditions, such as when it's cold.


Also, heat plates under the grill(s) will help spread the heat under the entire cooking surface and help with the hot side/cold side all units with a side fire box suffer from.

and look into why and how on the heat plates

Great minds think alike! Did the same thing to my TMLE a couple of years ago...
