Labor of Love

I have been working on the modifications for my Chargriller since around 8:00am. These mods were borrowed from Ompappy. I added the baffle first and then the firebox. The extension was added before I even had a firebox and it helped a great deal. The only problem I am having now is getting the temp up over 240 deg. These are great modification that help control the heat. The only thing I could do different is get a Gator.

Cliff, I that's one of those sites where you have to email the pic or folder to yourself and then post what you get in your email, or something like that. Several here use Kodak so someone will be along to help you out..

The angle iron is to help seal the air gap between the main body and the lid . In general the made in China Chargriller is not a very high end unit as you have found out. these mods just help to even out the temp. The bricks help to evenly space the heat. What I noticed is that the temp would read 230-240 but the meat would look like it was cooking at 250-275. It is going to take a little getting used to.

Do you have a couple of digital therms?
I put another therm towards the bottom of the grate.
The digital is right on! Make a longer baffle, it will help

How long of a baffle do you think it needs? It is about 6" right now. I am going to put on another one because I am concerned about the metal giving off fumes.
