    Masterbuild XL Mods - Post your mods here!

    I did not pay attention to the thermometer in the door. I noticed today that the spare propane tank I took from the BBQ grill was almost empty. I wonder if low pressure might be a factor. Turned the smoker on with the new tank and the flame looked fine?

    Instead of a stove grate and cast iron skillet I picked up a larger diameter 3 legged dutch oven. The legs are not quite long enough but it seemed to work well. I will need to get something to raise it up some to give more room for air flow. Another issue is adding more wood chips. I got a large...
