You know, I was wondering the same thing. Had BBcue-Z's post not been around, when I was researching a new smoker, I would have gone with the Weber smoker. Because of his posts, and suggestions, I did more research on the Chargriller, and picked one up.

The day's almost over and I'm doin' a little catching up on all the char-griller posts.... about the kickbacks, funny, but I just assumed Z worked for Char-Griller.

I'm lovin' this site for alllll the information that's being put out there on a variety of subjects. Thanks to all the experts out there who are helping us newbies along.

Well... I will bet that Z knows more about the Char-Griller than many of the people who work for Char-Griller do... If anyone has mastered that unit.... it's Z... he's the man.

Yeah, I'll have to admit if it wasn't for all the posts singing praises for the Char-Griller, I wouldn't have even considered one. I was under the impression that these were flimsy smokers because whoever put the floor model together at my local Lowe's did a lousy job. If it weren't for the posts, I wouldn't have gone back to examine the smoker more closely. Now that mine's together, I can't wait to fill it up with all sorts of stuff. :D

I just bought a char-griller about a week ago because i needed a bigger grill for my july
4th cook-out! Let me tell you; The Char-grill is the mother of all grills (M.O.A.G.).
I was able to use it as a slow smoker without the fire-box. I only used one chimney full of
charc at the beginning with some hickory chunks and kept the temp at around 220.
I smoked 2 boston butts and a beer- can chicken for six or seven hrs. There were no left-overs.

Hail Char-grill!!
Death to propane!
I like my toast a little burnt.

SGt Shultz- Great Handle. "I zee nuthinink, I know nothink, I did not even get up zis mornink" Man I used to love that show!

You know you think that many of us here would have endorsement deals, but to my knowledge (other than a few Home Depot Guys) and obviously Steve himself, none of us here has any affiliation with any manufacturerer or supplier or any other profit motivation for being here. Thats part of what makes this place so great.

bcarl,
You don’t have to get a bottom plate made; they sell them at the link below for $8.00. I think the reference was to the entire body of the smoker and not just the bottom. Thicker metals tend to hold the heat very well. But I don’t think this smoker/grill needs any help. It was 90 degrees here yesterday in Atlanta, and I had the smoker setting in the shade (no fire inside of it), and the gauge was registering 175 degrees for most of the day.

out. Heck, if it werent for u guys my pulled pork wouldnt have turned out the way it

by you folks. Happy Grillin!
