Mod 1: Inserting temperature gauge 

Actually the factory gauge doesn’t work very well.
It would be better if the gauge has to be  fixed at the lid level where the items are being set for smoking.
You will get a better result and you can control the temperature.

Equipment:

Steps to follow:

  • Measure in from the edge five and a quarter inches and two inches up.
  • Drill two holes at the same level on both sides. 
  • Start drill with a little tiny drill bit then up to 3/8 inches so that you can get a nice hole.
  • Insert the temperature gauge into the hole and tighten up with a bolt and wrench.

Mod 5: Using Baffle plate 

You can collect metal sheets( 3-foot lengths) from home depot.Or you can buy readymade baffle plates from Amazon. 

Equipment:

Steps to follow :

If you want to make your own you will need to cut the metal sheet in two pieces with the help of metal shears. It should be the size.

  • Slightly bend a piece of metal sheet that will be placed on the side of the firebox.
  • Take off all components from the cooking chamber.
  • Place the three bricks on the bottom inside the cooking chamber.
  • Now place the metal sheets on both sides over the bricks.

    Place the baffle plates in such a way that it insulates the upper portion of the hole ( Joints between firebox and cooking chamber).

    The lower portion will allow smoke to travel towards the cooking chamber. Shown in the image below.

FAQ

What gasket do you use around the fire box and cook chamber?

Usually I use lava rock gasket sealant it’s the 8th inch by 5/8 by 8 feet self-stick.
This is not compulsory, you can use any good quality gasket for your cooking chamber and fire box.

How do you clean your Char Griller Competition Pro Grates?

Use soap and water to clean your Char Griller Competition Pro Grates.
I don’t think so for the grate you will need an expensive cleaner to remove chemicals which come from the factory.
But you have to do it before you season it.
