Hi everyone I have been reading over the various threads about char grill-er pro. I smoked my first time ever last week with one. I tried to smoke a Boston butt.. It turned ok. With that said it was a real struggle to keep the temp @ 225- 250. I was going through charcoal and wood like crazy. In 9 hours I used a small 5 lb bag of hickory wood chunks, approx 12 lbs of charcoal and a bag of hickory wood chips. It was a 65 degree day with a small breeze (10 mph winds). Is that normal to use that much fuel? So now I'm trying to figure what modifications are a must have on char grill-er pro. Any help would be appreciated. I did go ahead and add the dryer vent to the stack, and add 2 thermometers to the cooking surface level the are located to the left and right of the handle about 2.5 inches from the ends.
