    I'd go buy few bottles of Pam bbq oil spray and spray down the entire unit. Especially around seams and joints and doors. Then bring the temperature as close to the 500 mark as you can and run it for 2 to 4 hours.

    ok, that's fire/coal in only the fire box correct ? paperwork that came with it sounded like they wanted me to burn in cooking chamber also and didn't really want to do  that, I must have misunderstood them, thanks a bunch.

    Yup just the fire box on side. You could put coals in the main box if you wanted to use it as a bbq you do have that option but I wouldn't do it

    Can anyone give me a sku # of product from home depot used to make a baffler for the trailmaster? Also this is the expanded metal I just ordered for pick up to make my charcoal box. Is this the right stuff? I don'tthink itis galvanized. You wouldn'tbeleive the hassleit wadto fondthis stuff. I spent 2hours at home depot looking for it so I decided to order online and let them find it for me haha .

    Well i did the mods talked about on here. I did a different ext for smoke stack, my only problem is i tried to do the plate for evening out temps with 2 cookie sheets. Trimed to cover hole and sides, caulked also but my temps while curing unit were 50* off side to side. May need 1/4" thick steel?

  19. I don't think your going to find a baffle for any smoker commercially at a big box store. It will have to be made. I just threw the cardboard template that I made just last week. I didn't check the radius of the lower corners of the baffle but simply used the flaps off the box that the BTLE came in and used trial and error then copied it to my metal plate.

    Yes the expanded steel is what you want for the charcoal box. I got mine at home depot
