    Hi everyone, my name is Rob and I'm in central Michigan. Currently using a Char-Griller that I put a stack extension on, flipped over the adjustable charcoal grate for a baffle, couple of River Country gauges, wok charcoal basket, turned my old Patio Pro into the side firebox, and plugged as many leaks as possible. Thank you to the Char-Griller sticky and everyone who posted in it.

    I've been smoking as a hobby for a few years now. First on a gas grill which was easy but quality was lacking. Then used a fish smoker box that I put a big hot plate in and modded up. Worked great for loin. Now I'm Char-Grilling. I like the art of it. If fresh cherry Dr. Pepper teriyaki hits me that day for beef then that's what I do. Mostly doctor store bought sauces and rubs up because my time is at a premium these days.

    Welcome to the forum, Rob! Sounds like you've got the basic mods done for your horizontal w/sfb. That's a big plus when you can dial it in for better temp control.

    I don't personally do much saucing, as I think it covers up the flavors of a good smoke....but I really like to toss together my own rub blends. Experimentation is the only way to find what you really like.

    Enjoy!
