    Emergency - Need Help

    Alright so it took me awhile to post about the smoke results and I want to apologize to people who maybe were monitoring this post for information about the Double-Door for that. I got extremely busy after that last post. Had a friend and his family come over at 3:00 in the afternoon and when...

    Emergency - Need Help

    Hey guys, Well I was able to get the temperature relatively regulated between 240* - 250*. It lasted about four hours and then it was time to start adding more coals and wood. Because I didn't anticipate it very well and I was afraid to add too much charcoal the temperature really took a dive...

    Emergency - Need Help

    Thanks for the advice guys, I'm trying to more closely regulate air flow now. The things that I had read said that they usually leave everything open until it reaches about 240* and then close it all off until it drop back down to 220* and then open the baffles a quarter of the way from there...

    Emergency - Need Help

    Okay so I was dumb...REAL dumb. After reading through this forum for the past couple of months I thought I had a good understanding of how to smoke but obviously I was wrong. Here's the problem: I have friend coming over tonight who expects pulled pork and I have a 5lb seasoned butt ready to...

    stoking fire with charcoal

    One more question: Do you add your wood on top of the red hot coals or down with the bed of unlit coals? Or both? -DD

    stoking fire with charcoal

    When you add new coals, do you open the top of the firebox to put them in? Or do you open the side door? If the side door, do you have to "shovel" them in or something? Just curious. First smoke should be this weekend. -DD

    Char-Broil Double-Door Smoker vs. Char-Griller Smokin' Pro

    Hey guys, Wanted to post some pics of the new smoker. I got it assembled on Sunday but not until late. Also, the camera ran out of battery power so I didn't get a chance to take any pics of it as I was putting it together. Probably for the best though because you would've seen me hot and...

    Char-Broil Double-Door Smoker vs. Char-Griller Smokin' Pro

    Well after going back and forth (and even considering just getting a weber kettle and adding a hinged grate), I finally decided to go with the Char-Broil Double Door. I'm going to be assembling the thing tomorrow and I will take pictures and post them here. Thanks for all the help! -DD

    Pulled pork 101

    Just wanted to say thanks for starting this post. They have Boston Butt on sale at the local market $1.17/lb, so I believe it will be my first smoke experience. However, it probably won't be until next weekend or the weekend after before I get a chance to do it. So with that in mind, I have a...

    Charcoal Smoker Modifications

    Dom, Actually, I haven't purchased one yet. I'm probably going to pick one up this weekend and I'm leaning toward the Char-Broil Double-Door over the Char-Griller. Either way, I know that I'll need to make some sort of baffle mod. With the cookie sheet, are they just leaning the cookie sheet...

    Charcoal Smoker Modifications

    Hey guys, As I'm doing research into an offset smoker, I see that a baffle and the extension of the chimney are the two things that seem to be most often referenced. Here's the problem, I've got the mechanical IQ of a small rock....not a big rock, a small one. I feel that I can manage the...

    A (not so) brief introduction

    Hey all, My name is Josh. I go by Deadly Diabetic because I used to play a lot of video games, especially first person shooters, and I was horrible at them. I am a type one diabetic (insulin dependent). So I put the two together to make fun of myself and kind of keep the atmosphere light and...

    Char-Broil Double-Door Smoker vs. Char-Griller Smokin' Pro

    Hi all, I'm new to the labor of smoking but having grown up in Memphis and certainly not new to the product of wonderful smoking. Anyway, now that I am away from what can arguably (and notice I say arguably because I know this has to be a debate) be called the BBQ capital of the nation, I'd...
