Hi all! Just joined, hope I put enough in my profile to help you help me with my questions. I want to mod my Char-Grill offset, but with a limited budget, I want to know what mods will produce results for my problem fastest. My biggest problem is keeping a steady 225 (which is due, in part, to how green I am with using an actual smoker). This thing leaks like a sieve and it has been about 45 degrees and windy as heck. So is it just too cold and windy for me to maintain temp? Would a chimney mod help? I plan on sealing the few extra holes with bolts and nuts first (wish I had done that right away). I have been opening the intake about 25% and leaving the chimney closed, with the intake facing away from the prevailing wind and getting out of direct winds as much as possible.
