CG Duo in Pasa(get smokin)dena Texas

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Want to introduce myself to all of you heavey smokers out there.. lol.. I may not be a Pro Smoker, but if you ask the family & my neighbors, they would say I am... (head swells up)... lol.. I am Kirk, btw, Capt Kirk was all ready taken.... lol....

I have just recently gotten one of the CharGrillers 50/50 Duos & thus far could not be happier with my purchase. I have been lurking around on the board for bout a month now, here reading up on the Mods people have made to thier CGs... Most have been on the Pro Smoker, but I have adapted to my Duo, not as big of cooking area, but... mmmmmmmmmm is still tasty.. lol..

If you are familiar with the Duo or Trio w/SFB, you know what kind of Behemoth it is... I have done 2 mods to so far & will be doing others I have read up on here shortly.. The first was to add casters to the front legs under the Char side which makes it alot more movable & the flume exten to the grate. Am very happy with both mods will post pics soon.

Keep on Smokin everyone!!! icon_cool.gif

Welcome to the forum Duo. I've gotten a lot of good use from mine for sure. Be sure to make a charcoal basket for your sfb. It will help you out a lot. Mine has been used mostly for grilling purposes the last few times I've used it (not for a while though) since building a drum smoker, it gets used more often than not for smoking.

Enjoy the forum and bring lots of pics

Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us. This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

For those of you new to Smoking, be sure to check out Jeff's 5 Day Smoking Basics eCourse.
Click Here it's "FREE" ... 5 Day eCourse

I Would Highly Suggest Reading these posts on Food Safety by bbally.

This thread will tell you basically everything you need to know and the man explaining it is
both a ServSafe Instructor and a HACCP Instructor.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Welcome to SMF. I love my Chargriller and have both the smoker and gas grill. I looked at the duo, and thought what a great idea. In my opinion they make a good product for the money. I really enjoy mine. I hope you enjoy yours as well. Make sure to post q-view of your projects.
