A couple of quick observations.
1. Boy you can stack it in in this puppy. Put a 5 lb turkey breast in, 7 lbs of country ribs, and a 3 lb rack of loin ribs and it didn't even holler. Had enough room left for a couple of full size briskets and more.
2. It definitly needs a couple of mods. Most important an expanded metal wood grate. It has the same problem my Black Diamond had, after a couple of loads of charcoal the ash tray fills up and the fire won't breathe right. The firebox baffle will help even out temps. in the smoker box. Also seen a mod using fireplace tape to seal the doors to the firebox and smoker that would probablly help also.
Good news first batch of country ribs are getting done and they are out of this world
