    +1 for this when I'm smoking something on the 2nd rack and don't need the first rack. If I need the first rack, I have the LSS mods that allow for an aluminum pan <2" tall to sit on brackets that rest on the manifold under the main grates. I've done 3 overnight smokes with it and a few all days...

    Were these the briquettes, char logs or lump? Ace Hardware has all 3 aroundish here.

    I believe the slip of paper that it ships with recommends any pan that is less than 2" tall/deep. I used some that are ~13 1/2 "x9 1/2"x1 7/8" under a pork butt that worked really well.

    MB Gravity Series Mods review

    I bought and have installed quite a few of them. The challenge is that I did it before really using the smoker so I don't have a before/after to compare to (and only have 2 smokes on it anyway). However, I can say it was really nice to have the ability to put drip pans under the main grates and...

    I have finally had the time to break in, season and install all of the LSS mods for my 1050 and today I finally had time to smoke something and I made some pulled pork. Overall I'm very pleased with my 1050. I had about a 35-40 difference between the grill temp and my inkbird but it stayed...

    My first butt have questions.

    When you all need to hold your butts (hehe) if they are done early, do you put them in foil immediately from the smoker or do you let them cool a bit before the foil/towel/cooler combo?

    Well, thanks to all of you in this thread I'm the proud new owner of a 1050! I got it at Home Depot and will benefit from them matching Menards 11% rebate which is a nice savings. I will fire it up and season it tomorrow and am considering getting the LSS mod pack for it right away as well...

    Appreciate the detail and insight on this. Have you used your 1050 in cold weather? If so was there a significant difference in coal consumption? My primary use will be smoking and as a grill when I need backup because my BGE is too full (that's the best problem to have).

    I couldn't have my first question be a softball that you all knock out of the park! Appreciate the quick responses and the perspectives on this. One big benefit that the 1050 has going for it for me is that it's actually available in my area . That honestly might be the deciding factor since...

    Long time reader and first time poster. I've read through a majority of this thread and have read a lot about the Char-Griller 980 as well. I'm considering the MB 1050 vs the CG 980. For those who own the 1050 do you feel that MB cleaned up most of their design or material quality changes...
