    Well...I wanted to make my own but I got a Char-griller brand as a gift but has no fire box, so I am trying to figure how to convert my weber into my fire box and attach to one of the vents on the side of the Char-griller.

  11. Welcome to the forum Deanna!  There are a ton of great folks on the forum that know a lot about smoking and they'll help you out in a flash!

    As for your Weber, no reason you can't make some great Q in the Weber itself, although it's more toward indirect cooking/smoking.  In a pinch I've made some fairly decent (If I do say so myself LOL) butts and ribs in a Weber Kettle.

    Keep us posted on your Weber/Char Griller mod.  You might want to check out flexible metal dryer duct material at a Home Depot or Lowe's to start your mod.  Just my very humble $0.02.

    First off, welcome to SMF... glad you found us.. I have the chargriller without the side firebox as well... I made a few mods to it and it works great.. It's more indirect grilling than a true smoker but it still turns out just as good Q as a true smoker.. here's a couple of pics of mine and you can see the mods (charcoal basket and exhaust vent duct down to grate level) and it's VERY fuel efficient...



  19. Nice mod Jack!  Like I said... metal dryer wonders!
