Great to be here! I just bought a "Char Grillin" Grill with an offset firebox. I did Beer butt chix for my maiden voyage last night. It was hard to get the temp up at first (150 or so was as good as it got) but as I messed with it I got a steady 225! The chix were fantastic and I am hooked! The only problem is the time involved. I'm afraid to leave the smokers side . Any help on achieving AND maintaining temps would be good. I know about the Minion method and would rather not have to modify rhe smoker. At any rate......let the smoke roll!
