    My take on the mailbox mod.

    Char Griller 980 Running very high temps

    Yah on the left of the flap there is an area the motor wires run through. Make sure the flap is y hung on it. If the flap is burning up make one from a Teflon grill mat.

    Char Griller 980 Running very high temps

    Yep. Big issue. I made my own flapper out of Teflon grill mat. Works the way it should now.

    Char Griller 980

    mine either but the technology and design are pretty similar to what competition barbecue circuit are using. My biggest complain about the whole thing is the front shelf is too high if you have any kind of pan sitting on the front shelf it’s hard to get that door open and closed.

    Char Griller 980

    The only reason was just because I have a bunch of chips and the basket keeps the chips from getting covered in the ash before they smolder. If I’m using chunks I normally this chuck them in the bottom of the ash pan

    Char Griller 980

    I can not recommend this grill enough. Great temp control, great smoke options. Changed my life. I’ve ran the gamut of grills and smokers from a homemade Weber mini wsm with a home brew pid and fan to a master built mes40 with mailbox mod. Spent way more than the modest $600 for the char...

    My take on the mailbox mod.

Another words it hasn’t seem to get hot enough to cause any segregation or damage to...

    Small stainless bolts ran through the body. Vent is in back.

    My take on the mailbox mod.

    Yah has an air intake on back side. I couldn’t put it in the front because of the handles and I couldn’t put the handles in the back because the hinge would be situated where it would come off. And from my testing it’s added only about 5° over ambient temperature when the smoker is off so...

    My take on the mailbox mod.

    Here is my take on the mailbox mod for the master built 40 inch electric smoker. Are used a 50 caliber ammo cans purchased at the local Walmart cut a 3 inch hole in it and just attached it right to the side of the smoker and it works perfectly with the AMNPS. 13 hours of light and forget smoke!
