What to buy and What to do to it in order to smoke properly


Joined Mar 2, 2011
Hello everyone I am in the reasearch phase for a new grill and want something that i can smoke plenty of food with and also still grill when i want to; I am leaning towards the Chargriller w/SFB.  I was hoping to get some help on what i need to do it once its out of the box as far as mods and other equipment to buy.

Thanks again and happy cooking.

Optimally you would need two rigs, one for grilling and one for smoking.....that said I have seen a chargriller duo unit with gas grill on one side and a horizontal smoker with SFB on the other, It looked pretty cool to me.

Get a WSM & a Weber kettle. The 2 together will take up about as much room as the Chargriller.

I have the Chargriller duo and I love it. You have to make some mods to the smoker for it work well and it does take up some space but for the money it's a good deal.

I personally like gas units the bet but thats me too. I would also suggest that you go with 2 units. I have 2 of each on my back porch/ outdoor kitchen and I can smoke up a storm also. Now I would recommend the Smoke Vault 24" it's a great smoker and it will not let you down as lng as you have gas.

Lots of choices to be sure and many on here have their favorite styles...electric, gas, side burners, charcoal etc. I switched to a gasser as well for control and convenience but I was seriously considering a MES 40 and still may eventually get one. Whatever you get it seems there is always some mod you'll wanna do after a while....or a bigger unit you want..lol
