  1. Hi everyone. Just bought my first smoker, the char griller super pro. I have read a lot about mods that have been applied to these grills/smokers to make them a lot more proficient. If anyone has any suggestions on what the best mods would be your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks have a great day.

  3. Thanks Gary and 5oclock these threads were really helpful. I have extended my stack down to just above grate level, added two thermometers, flipped the main charcoal res and foiled the bottom half of the main chamber. I tried to foil a better seal around the main chamber. Eventually I want to seal the smoker with a more proficient and less ugly way. I have seen fiberglass rope... is an easier way?
     



  4. If you look around my cooking chamber you will see 1 inch angle iron I bolted to the main cooking chamber (if you do this, you must use stainless steel nuts and bolts, not galvanized). On top of that is nomex gasket tape. It reall helps straighten out the chamber too.
    Also Gary is a great guy. He always willing to help newbies like us.

  5. Looks really nice. What kind of bit did you use to drill the holes in the 1 inch angle iron. Did you get your fire basket online? Where can you find the nomex?

  6. Used plain old Ryobi drill bits from Home Depot. I used stainless steel 1/4 inch nuts and bolts. To make it easier, don't start with 1/4 bit. Use a smaller sized bit to drill a starter hole. Then go through it with 1/4 inch. Starting with 1/4 inch bit will make bit skid around on the angle iron. I cut my angle iron with my sawzall. I kept lid closed, and had a friend bump angle iron against lid and hold it there while I drilled hole. Just be careful not to accidentally move whe drilling.

    Gasket tape from amazon.
