Welcome! You should consider moving to lump charcoal, if yer not using that. The 5 day Ecourse is excellent for beginners as well.

And lots of mods for that machine... charcoal basket first, tuning plates next...

charcoal basket? do you have the same unit? hoping the existing grate will work to start and a custom grate and pan for easy ash removal.

going for the first smoke tomorrow. young small turkey breast, mesquite, lump charcoal.

drilled 2 better temp guages. one by firebox and one on stack end. trying just a foil basting pan to extend the heat to center and a little heavy duty foil on the lower charcoal great as makeshift tuners. looking for a tin can to extend the stack down a scoshe.

like that idea tex. angle iron support on the bottom and a tray underneath perhaps.

Thanks for all the help. i'll have a few bumps i'm sure but with the amount of knowledge i've got in the short period i've had here i'll be the talk of all my daughter's friends and families.

I'll keep ya informed of the newb's progress. the 7 year old daughter will be assisting.

Welcome to the SMF! Try this for your charcoal basket, works great for me, and will hold a full charcoal chimney with room left over for wood chunks
