New grill/smoker dilemma: Char-griller 3001 - Page 2

I definitely like the wagon steering idea, thats on my list. That is if it survives the movers. If not gives me an excuse rebuilt, mod that much sooner.

I recently purchased the 3001 as well and so far am very happy with it... you stated you placed a water pan under the meat while smoking... where exactly did you place it? Did you completely remove the gas tubes? If so, did you even bother with the attaching screws when you put them back in?

thanks

Hi group, I am interested in what the lowest temp you can get on the gas side of your grills?
Probably one burner on low? Thanks Tomm

Thanks for the thread with the links to others. Good question as I was looking at the same Char-Griller set up, but I did not need the gas grill. since I just got the Boil-King XL. I was trying to figure out how to add a gas burner to the smoker box, so I would have options, charcoal or gas in the smoker box.  seeing what happened to Smokaholic's you can see that they suggestion about having the temperature in the side box, stay below 400F as pointed out in the owner's manual. I guess that you can not use wood only, due to the size limits of the side box....

This poses a question that I have. Due to the smaller size of the main barrel, does that affect the heat transfer or trap the heat in the side smoker box?  Allow me to reword that question, if the first one didn't make sense right off. When using the side smoker box, is there an advantage to having a larger main barrel?

Sketter, the only other thing which you should consider, how many weekend BBQ parties are you planing and the number of people you are going to smoke or cook  for... In this case size does matter. LoL

 

 Food for thought,

 GGG

Was it easy to install? Do you see any ware on the gas burning due to the smoke?

If you use it a lot and want it to last go with the best you can afford. Look for metal thickness, how well it is put together, any potential leaks Quality

The side charcoal box is no longer available and the grill itself is no substitute for a charcoal barbecue. Meat cooked on it is tasteless. Altogether the Chargrill 3001 is the biggest outdoor cooking mistake I have made in thirty years of loving barbecue

I have a char-griller duo gas grille with the wood burning smoker on the right side. I added the accessory right side fire box and it's performance is flawless. Since then, I added a turkey fryer burner in the side fire box and converted it into a propane smoker. I put my wood chips in a one gallon metal can - ( like the ones you buy pork and beans in at the grocery store) - light the burner and place the smoker can halfway on the flame and presto - you have smoke in 60 seconds. Perfect for keeping the smoker at your desired temperature as you can regulate the amount of heat with the propane burner. I absolutely love it and the flavor is NO different than when using a wood fire. As for the grille from chargriller - it has lasted five years so far and is still in very good condition. (Having it set up on me covered deck helps - for those without a roof over the grille you need to keep it covered with the accessory chargriller grill cover or something of the like.

I got the char griller 3001 for Christmas and the sfb for my birthday. I have tried sealing the sides to prevent leaks but it doesn't seem to work. Looking for the right sealant. Also curious as to a charcoal box in the sfb. Here are some pictures. [IMG][IMG]
