Hey everyone,

I know there's a lot of gravity fed owners out there and I recently read about using a power brick to prevent having to be plugged in. I'm hoping people could post some bricks they have used and any power cord attachments please. I just want to make sure I'm getting the right equipment for power draw, length of battery, etc. Thanks in advance.

There’s some great info in this thread. https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/new-chargriller-gravity-fed-grill.307088/page-4
Read postings #62 through #76, they should answer most of your questions. Good luck…

Let us know how it works out. I considered the battery mod but I conveniently had an electrical circuit not too far from where I keep the 1050, so I opted to run some new conduit and put a GFCI outlet in right where I plug it in outside. So now I've got a circuit that is "master bath lights and smoker" hah.

I use a power brick and it easily lasts an all day brisket or pork butt cook

I use this power cell:
And this cable:
Works great. Never actually used the power cord in 20+ cooks

Sorry don't know why those links are showing up. Something unique and special about this place I'm sure. Links work fine everywhere else
 
I use an older Ryobi construction site radio that runs the same 18 volt batteries as the drills and saws, it has a usb port on it and the battery lasts days.
