  1. I might do something similar
  2. Now thats a good idea, i like the idea of the angle too, but 30deg? Thats an awfull lot? I thought 5 maybe 10? I thought the same regarding the baffle plates after my ribs test i did monday, cheep rack if ribs 1.99ish layed them the length to gauge heat across the grates. Ive now blocked the sides of the first plate as i as i was loosing all the heat at the start and burning the ribs at that end . Gotta get it right as smoking a brisket Saturday 😫
  3. Ok so the mods helped and hindered, Helped:- ash/charcoal basket 👍 Baffles :- need a little mod, ill explain more once mod done🤞
  4. I will do a small review, im a lot dislexic so lots of pics and not much spelling or punctuation 👍 Will be here tomoz, ribs and chicken today tho testing out the cheap smoker mods 👍👍
  5. I built a deflector out of a peice of alloy sheet, just hung it over the handle about 2inches /50mm away from the vent, it helped a huge amount
  6. Thank you, and thanks to everyone for the warm welcome Colin
  7. Ok i have a basic meat thermometer, and the one in the lid that lies to me continuosly, so i thought i would look foe something better, or at least an improvement. I found a Nobebird on the bay, new , bidding but no one bid its starting price was 2.99 plus postage 3.50 it ended at midnight ish and i would be long in the land od nod by then , so i bid a max bid of 20 of my finest English pounds and won it for £20 ish inc the postage. Has anyone got one, what are they like? Any reviews, did i get a deal or get shafted? Let me know Colin

  10. Ok so ive only had it 3 days, ive sealed all the holes, welds , sides smoke box and fire box lids fire box to smoke box........ I kept loosing temperature and discovered ash blocking the fire box, so ive raised the grate for airflow, made a charcoal fire box cut some stainless tuning plates and baffle board (found these for the oklahoma smoker) and copied. Lets see if these modifications help or hinder 🤞👍 Colin
