    !Me gusta el Capitan!

    Did you build that that disaster? I doubt if it even works.. But please, prove me wrong and don't forget the q-view!

    Looks like a good mod to do with all the char-broilers on craigslist.

    It would make a nice water cooker

    i have taen a pic of the inside and will try and upload tommorow. for those wanting the info basicly there are 3 tubes coming from the top of the fire box... on the inside the whole length of smoke chamber is a metal plate about 1 inch above where the tubes come into the chamber... with the 2 exhaust it pulls heat and smoke both to left and right and allows for pretty even temps.... with the plate covering the tubes from the firebox u have very little direct heat....and 1 good thing is we all know heat rises therefore it comes up and maintains temp real well.....wifes camera is dead or i would load pic of the inside now.... anymore questions let me know!!

    the dust u see there is where i was cleaning smoke box today and had very windy conditions and i was even covered in ash..... it just trapped more where i had extra oil from seasoning... as u see there is the plate that covers the tubes coming from box, and there is about a 1 inch gap from plate to tubes....

    Is that counterweight spring loaded or just a gravity weight?

    I may do something of this design with my char-griller

    Looks light a gravity weight Pete,

    I'm thinking the same thing for the Char-griller
