    Made a diffuser plate and now in the process of making a charcoal basket.

    Sealed entire smoker with fire barrier RTV - ordered Nomex gasket of amazon for the door seals

    Added the Thermometers to cooking door

    Now that's what I call planning. Now you can do twice as much smoking! The best addiction in the world.

    Mods look good........now get smoking!

    I sliced and froze bacon and Canadian bacon yesterday. Turned out good.
