Been reading a lot on here, and decided to get the SFB for my Char Grill. I bought the basket at Lowes to use for the charcoal, and I extended the exaust down to the grill with the flex pipe. I inverted the charcoal grate in the main body to use a the baffle. I bought a thermometer at Walmart for $5, it was a meat thermometer but it goes up to 600 degrees. I calibrated it in boiling water and installed it on the far end of the grill from the fire box at grill level. I am running a test now to see how temps go. Lit it about and hour and 20 minutes ago. It heated up to about 280, and has come down to around 260 at the moment. Going to try and control it some with the air intake vent. If the temps look good, gonna try and actually smoke some meat later this week, can't wait!!!
