    Hi Everybody

    My name is Carlos, I split my time between London, UK and the Azores, PT

    I just bought me a grill thats ( supposedly ) made in the same chinese factory as the Char Griller 5050, dimensions are the same (even takes the same cover) but does have some interesting bits I likes, the smoker box looks to be better fitter to the grill and overall a little sturdier, will be using it in the Azores for the occasional BBQ and Smoke

    I joined because all my experience is mostly with Gas grills, and I wish to learn more on how to cook with coal/wood and smoke :)

    Here is the new Grill, in all honestly I still have it in the box and will be setting it up soon


    cheers !

    Hello Carlos and welcome to this great site.

    You will find many folks on here that know a whole lot about

    wood and charcoal.

    If they don't stop by here soon, jump right out into the forums 

    and ask.

    You will get answers.

    Have a good time.

    Thanks everybody 

    The first how-to I am looking for is how (when) to use the coal pan risers, I see this unit allows you to raise or lower the pan with the coals so they are closer or further down from what you are cooking, looking for somewhere I can learn how to use it efficiently ... yes, i'm that green with coal and smoke !
