So far, I'm on my second smoker. the first one I had was a "Torpeto Style" Brinkman. Didn't really like that one much and nothing I tried to cook on it turned out to my expectations. I have since moved up to a Char-Griller Smokin Pro with the Side Fire Box. I got it at Lowes as a Birthday gift last year and my wife already calls it "The Mistress". I'm constantly trying to perfect my Smoking Tech. I have already got quite a few mod ideas from posts on this site. As far as my experience level, I guess you could say, I'm in between the "just learnig" and the "pro" catagory. Just a bit closer to the "just learning" on the educated scale.
I'm from Kansas City, Missouri, AKA the BBQ Mecca of the world, KC Style is the best! I know that will get a few comments as this Thread ages! LOL.
I signed up to this to get some pointers from you Pros out there. I hope to get to a point where I may meet some of you in person at a BBQ Competition or maybe the American Royal BBQ here in KC. Maybe even join you on the award stage!

Southwestern and Oklahoma Style???

I only wanted to compare the 4 main bbq styles. I personally have never hear of OK style. As far as SW Style, I beleive that falls under TX Style.

Welcome from "north of the river" KCMO!

new to the forum myself and I have the same unit as you - already started to modify, with the stack extension. Went to the lowes and depot looking for expanded sheet metal grate for a new coal rack - but they only had 18 ga. so need to keep looking for a stouter grate.

If only the weather would cooperate a bit more - I could get more experience!

I too am from the "great lakes area". I grew up there. Go Ohio State! (Noticed you were a Woverines fan) This weather does suck but I agree, It is WAAAAYYY colder up there. I grew up about 20 minutes south of Lake Erie. Nothing is colder than a gust out of the north that has been traveling across miles of frozen lake! Brrrr!

I spent this weekend doing some mods to my grill that I found on here. You can find a bunch of mod ideas and tips on here.

This is the best link that I found for ALL of the Modifications you can do to a CGSP.


The only thing I did different was on the side firebox upgrade.
I used a "Shaker basket" http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...esc&lpage=none. Fits perfectly in the fire box without the handle attached. It allows the ashes to fall into the ash tray so you can empty the ashes during a long smoke without disrupting the burning coals. It also improves air circulation around the coals thus making a constant temp easier to get.
