I grew up in San Diego (a.k.a. in-sane-diego). Bar-b-q's at the beach with the family. Well, grillin' hot dogs and hamburgers on a Hibachi. My Pop's standard answer to "how do you want it?" is . . . wait for it . . . wait for it . . . BURN IT!
I lived in Texas for a while and, well, what can I say? GREAT BBQ!! Now I am home and want to learn how to make my OWN great BBQ. On impulse, stupid impulse, I purchased a Char-Broil charcoal grill (Link to grill info on Char-Broil site). After the fact, I wished I had purchased a smoker.
After adding a proper temperatur gauge and extending the smokestack to grate level, my thought is to add a side fire box and make a few more mods. I found one online for the Char-Griller. The cooking chamber of the Char-Griller looks just like the one on the Char-Broil. I believe it will work.
I guess my question is, is it worth it or should I just purchase an offset smoker?
Any help or suggestions on posts I should read will be appreciated.
if it aint black it aint dun!
