Hello everyone, My name is Chris. I'm brand new to smoking, and grilling if I am to be totally honest. But I like to think I catch on quickly. I just got myself a CGSP and have it "seasoning" the grates as we speak. I have a few questions and would appreciate any input you all can give me. Even if its just pointing me to other articles to read. First off, I have been reading about some of the mods people do to these grills and I'm curious as to which ones are worth doing right out of the gate. Already considering the dryer pipe, and adding some better thermometers. Are these good things to do ASAP? Secondly, I am curious as to the amount of charcoal I should be using with this grill. Also how exactly do I integrate the wood for smoking. I already got some different types of chips, just I am not sure how to integrate them exactly. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
