So I have been looking for a new smoker and called lowes today. They had the Super Pro Char griller for $139 and I couldn't beleive it, the fire box for $16! So I jumped on it right away. They had 2 fireboxes left, they mark the old 2009 models down. Very easy to put together but those (words of frustration) football cut outs! Are you kidding me CharGriller? They weren't even spot welded. I drilled out the screws and bashed it with a hammer for about 20 minutes till I was sweating and needed a beer. I bent the whole side of the grill in but bent it back. Took a dremel tool to it and opened up the whole quite a bit but not completely. Why would it not already be opened on the firebox? I guessing this cutout needs to be opened fully to have proper heat flow? I'm buying new blades for my sawzall tommarow. I have to season it and smoke for the super bowl. How do I setup the fire box? It came with 2 grills but neither of them look like they work well to me. Whats the best way to set this up? I need to get it going tommarow. Overall I am happy with the construction and quality. The cutouts are probably the dumbest thing that I have ever put together but for the price it can't be beat. I have already done the dryer vent mod and planning a few other thanks to you guys on the site.
