Reasonably good cook and recently purchased a smoker at Lowes, had to get to five hundo for free delivery of the grill, so I added a inexpensive Master Forge vertical, i think thats what you call it. Anyways, I like smoked food, my wife doesn't really like the flavor of charcoal. sacralegious, I know. so I hacked up the side burner from our defunct charbroil and grafted it into the bottom of the Smoker. thus I can use the propane to provide the heat and then just add foil wrapped packets of hickory for the smoke flavor. the only thing I have not done yet is add some top vent holes. I plan on adding some, again canabalize the charbroil gril for metal and then cut and paste it on. Not sure how many holes to add or if I should do just one larger one. My temp right now is a little high, empty, its holding at about 305. if I open the access door and leave open, it will easily drop to about 265-270. any suggestions will be appreciated.
