On Thursday my new smoker showed up and I put it together along with all of the mods. On Friday I fired it up just to season it, I hadn't planned on smoking anything until next week....but I couldn't stand it, after burning a bag of charcoal up to get'r seasoned I had to give the 3-2-1 ribs a shot. The wife went to the store and picked up a couple of racks of spare ribs and I had them on at 4:00 yesterday afternoon and took them off at 10:00. I will be having them for dinner tonight.

I remember when my chargriller was that ugly ------- uhh, I mean cleanicon_lol.gif

Looks great .................

Seems like evryone is running that dryer vent down to the grate, I left mine up about 3 or 4 inches off the grate so i could fit 5 or 6 racks of ribs straight across the entire cook area ...... just a thought for you guys, if you ever did more than a couple racks at a time.

Enjoy 'em

it looks like you flipped the "stock" charcoal grate over inside the main body...was that to act as a baffle for the firebox?

if so, how'd it work? Is anyone else is here doing the same thing? Did you need to drill any holes in it?

Yea, that's exactly what I did and used a brick to support it at the smoke stack end.. I haven't drilled any holes in it yet but I think I will before the next smoke this weekend. The temperature was actually hotter on the smoke stack end than it was on the firebox end. I already have a grill so I won't be grilling on the smoker. I'll probably start with just a few holes at time to see how it works out. I also used the firebox cooking grates to set the charcoal on so I can remove the ash tray without messing with the coals.

drop the stack end of the coal tray & place a 3-4" flat wrap of foil @ the end of the top grate for better (lower-mine reads 220)temp control. on unit 2 i also triple wrapped the tray in heavy foil.the tray goes from highest to lowest from firebox
to stack end.

Thanks for the suggestion, that would work better than drilling holes. I will probably get some thinner steel to do this with, the grate that came with the smoker is pretty thick stuff.
