Nick,

Welcome.

Here are some pictures of me trying to use wood sticks on my offset smoker. If you try this it takes alot of babying.

http://usera.imagecave.com/cleglue/FireManagement/

I modified my bottom grate to get air flowing from the bottom.

If you really want to get started right go to this site

http://www.homebbq.com/content.asp?contentid=688

and get Dan's pdf on how to fireup and keep a steady temperature in small offset smokers. Here method works VERY WELL.

If your exhaust vent doesn't go down to the grill surface in the smoker part you may want to modify it with some type of duct work. This will allow you smoker to get hotter before letting the heat out. My Bar-B-Chef is a new model and the company has already made this modification.

Drop an email if you need any more specifics.

Just finished a couple of Dan's modifications. Seems like the baffle is a little long even though its within the specs he mentioned. But it looks much longer than the one in his pictures on the pdf.

Need to run out and get a bigger drill bit to reposition the thermometer.

Here's a picture:

Try it long. If the temperature doesn't get hot enough you can always take it out and cut it. I believe it should work. I've had flames come from the firebox into the smoker box on occasions.

If that plate is galvanized I would make sure I get that thing very hot and burn it off. You don't want galvanized poisoning.

Damnit...I just searched online and it looks like galvenized poisoning is some bad stuff. I read one article that recommended not trying to burn it off at all.

Everything at homdepot/lowes that I saw was galvenized. HMM.....I guess I'll have to take this mod off before i cook tommorow.

I would not, (repeat), I would NOT use galvanized metal!
It does not burn off!
