  1. Hello everyone,
    I'm a 35 yr old father and husband that just recently got interested in learning how to smoke meat. I have a char-griller professional with a side smoke box, that's never been used. Im also interested in modifying my grill and have a few ideas already thanks to this site. Guess that's about it for now.

    Here's a thread dedicated to modding that smoker.  It's only 15 pages long, so get comfortable if you sit down to read it all.  I've got the same smoker and I got tons of ideas from this thread.  I'm still not 100% satisfied with it, but I've finally been able to churn out some respectable Q with it.

    Stick around here and you'll learn tons.  I've gone from producing smokey hockey pucks to Q worth talking about in about 6 months with the lessons I've learned here.
