  1. Hello all,
    I am a newb at smoking. My grill (Char-Broil propane Commercial series 3 burner plus side pot burner stainless) finally warped the cast brass burners to the point of serious hot spots. So, I rebuilt it. I used a new h-burner towards one side using two of the controls. One round pot type burner on the other side for indirect heat. Found a metal box at goodwill (I think it was a router tote box). Ran some 3" duct from the tote box to a hole I made in the orig grill below the cooking rack. The tote box sits on the side burner. Put a fan from a hair dryer in the duct (am running the fan with batteries, so it turns much slower than used to). Just test fired it yesterday, seems to work beautifully. I kept all the functionality of the orig grill with the h-burner, plus added both cold and warm smoking ability. Can't wait to smoke somethin'. If you are interested I might take some pics and post. Thanks for reading, will see you on the boards.

    Nice to have you join us. Don't know how much actual smoking experience you have, but you have a lot of moxy. Taking on that rebuild and modification project, took some thought and understanding of the process. Sounds like it will be very successful. I would like to see some pictures of the finished product. I know the others would too. You might take a look at Jeff's 5 Day eCourse on smoking Basics. It is a good refresher, even for the seasoned cook. Once again, good to have you on board.

    After posting I realized I didn't know where you were located. Checked your profile and found you to be in Sherwood. Great to have another Oregonian on SMF. Did a lot of motorcycling out of Sherwood and the coastal mountains, in the past. Can't believe how the town has grown. Wasn't anything but a wide spot in the road back then. Came through just the other day, on way back from Seaside. Lived in Clackamas until a few years ago. Anyway, enough of that. Enjoy the forum and remember to ask, if you have any questions.

  3. Well, thank you Pescadero (skip). I have not smoked a darn thing yet. Have done lots of research, that's how I work. I do lots of research then get into whatever it is. Good to see a fellow Oregonian, and yes Sherwood seems to be growing hourly, anyway thanks for the correspondence.
