  1. Hello,

    I was recently referred to this site by a coworker who had a large hand in getting me hooked on smoking (the hardwood kind not the plant kind [​IMG]  ).

    My smoker is a Traeger Junior that I purchased about 6 months ago. It has since been greatly modified and I smoke a cut of meat every chance I get (wallet permitting)

    Modifications I've made:

     - Replaced S-M-H controller with Ortech digital

     - RTV gasket for door

     - Thermal battery (pro sounding name for a big foil-wrapped block of sand that lays in the bottom of the grill for heat recovery when I open the door)

    The goal of the mods I've done has been to improve temperature control on the little guy and it's come a long way from the 50+ degree temperature swings it had stock. I'll definitely upgrade my smoker in a couple years, but for now it's serving great as training wheels.

    See Y'all around.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
