Thanks! This is a new Braunfels - Black diamond smoker, it’s about 4 years old, and I think I got it from home depot, not sure on that though.
Looks like they don't come with the igniter or the Temperature Gauge anymore but they do offer them on their website
This thing is built like a tank and since we have been through so much, it seemed like a shame to give up on her.
The igniter does help but I don't use very often at all. If I am doing charcoal I find a chimney works better and I don't like all that nasty charcoal smoke lining the walls of my chamber and getting on my grates. If am using wood, I still do some charcoal in the chimney then place the wood chunks or logs on the hot coals. The igniter comes in handy when I am doing long smoking with wood and I need to add a few new pieces and whatever is in the fire box is not going to light up the new pieces.
