    Here's some pics of my mods:
    1st: Dual thermos to replace the POS it came with.



    2nd:Baffle for the fire box. 22 guage steel.


    3rd: Extension for stack

    (This phot sux, but you get the idea.)

    Anything I missed? I will be sealing it up in the future, rope seal around the lid. Figure this should get me going though.[​IMG]

    Welcome to smf B. Jumping right in. Way to go. Took me a few smokes before I got my SnP mods done. Good luck with the brisket and don't forget the q-view.

    Looks good man. I have the same smoker, did my baffles a little different..You didn't mention the firebox but if you haven't already get a fuel basket makes all the difference in the world..here's a link to mine.
