    This is excellent advice, and I agree completely. One thing I have also noticed is that the size of the "lumps" in lump charcoal make a significant difference in fuel consumption. I bought a bag of lump from Academy Sports, and the lumps were huge. Even up to small branch/log size. Luckily I...

    I have the Pitboss pro-series PBV4. I think all the Pitboss verticals are about the same. On the later ones they moved the electronics to the side as they were constantly getting covered when basting meat. There is no comparison between the pitboss vertical and the gravity 1050. Hands down...

    Hey there, For the seals, just search amazon for "nonley smoker gasket seals". Lots will pop up, and I assume they are all pretty much alike. I went with the 3/4 inch seals, and they fit the lid rim very nice. I installed the seal on the lid itself and not the "bottom" part of the grill. My...

    I used the self adhesive BBQ seal around the cook chamber lid, and the flat area around where the charcoal gets loaded. (See previous posts for links and pics) I have that stainless "lid" thingy from LSS mods, and with that seal material, around the cook chamber, mine leaks VERY little. I'm...

    We love meat loaf around here

    I enjoyed every minute of that video... Now I have to go out and buy a meat-grinder attachment for my kitchen aid mixer! Thanks for sharing, great stuff!

    Pit-Boss Vertical Smoker W/Mods (Tulsa, OK) $225

    Greetings, I have a Pit-Boss Vertical smoker for sale. Technically it's the "PBV4PS1". Inside it has 5 cooking racks, and they all tall enough for a brisket. I have done the following mods: Smoke Daddy cold smoke generator ($120) - This allows you to throw some pretty serious smoke and control...

    Hey there, as far as a switch goes, I actually found the one that I used (CLICK HERE). I liked it because it was hardwired, and I could solder the wire leads. I did use some heat shrink over them when I was done. I was glad I did this mod as I was able to secure the wires away from the firebox...

    I wish I could tell you the make/model of the switches, but I threw the packages away. I just picked them up and my local auto parts store. These had the wire leads already on the switch so I just clipped off the electrical connectors that came on the smoker, and soldered the wires together...

    For anyone who is interested, here is how I bypassed the problematic switches. It was pretty straightforward, and I was glad that I did. I was able to zip-tie the wires away from the hopper/firebox, as they might melt if they contacted? I am not a huge fan of "safety" features that are prone to...

    Has anyone just bypassed all of the problematic switches with regular toggle switches? I actually went back and read all 64 pages of this thread (great info, and thank you to all who have offered up valuable info!) I did not see anyone who just bypassed the poor quality lid/door switches, and...
