Adding a Side Fire Box to Barrel Grill

  1. I have a Char-Griller Outlaw grill and just started using it for smoking.
    I did a 12lb brisket last weekend and it turned out good.
    Only thing I didn't like was having to open the lid every 1-2hours to add
    wood and charcoal. It would drop the temp inside about 50-75 degrees.

    You think it's worth getting a side for box for it?
    Grill Direct has them for $80 w/ free shipping.

    Yes the side fire box is worth it . Set up tuning plates in the smoker and you will be able to keep the temp even on both sides of the smoker .
