Charbroil American Gourmet Deluxe

  1. So this is my first smoker and I've had it for about two and a half weeks now.


    I went with Charbroil because i've had a charcoal grill made by them for years and am in love with it!  I saw a lot of stuff pointing towards the smokin pro horizontal offset but I wanted stay loyal to a company that has treated me well.


    For a rookie like myself I thought this would be a ton of smoking room, and I was right.  I skipped putting in the warmer rack because it seemed like a waste of good smoking space.  I also immediately tossed the firebox cooking grate.


    I did add a few things I had seen under mods for the smokin pro.  The metal "tuning plate" which is really more of a way for me to even out my heat and the dryer vent to extend my smoke stack to the grate have worked out tremendously well.  I haven't moved anything around since I first put these small mods in, and I have incredibly even heat, and great smoke flow.


    Anyway, i'm in love all over again with Charbroil, so if anyone is looking at this model, I think it's worth every penny.  The temp dial is junk, like on most of these i'm guessing.  But I bought the Maverick E-732 and that thing is just awesome.  Happy Smoking!
