I've been lurking for several weeks and I just joined a few days ago.

I live in central Georgia. I just bought a Chargriller Wrangler this summer, before realizing I probably should have gotten something a little bigger. But that's OK, a couple of months ago I bought a side firebox and this thing is now a pretty decent little smoker. So far, since breaking in the SFB, I've smoked 3 Boston Butts, about 7 or 8 slabs of ribs, and some ABTs. I've been grilling for years, but that's just not near as much fun/work.

I'm working on coming up with some kind of baffle system so I can even out the temps a little bit from one side to the other. I've been getting as much as a 100* difference, and that makes me afraid to use my entire grate surface. I generally keep things close to the fire side and avoid the "cold" side. I picked up a couple of 6" x 18" steel plates that I can lay across the inside of the smoker that I hope will block some of the direct heat coming up out of the firebox hole and direct some heat and smoke to the other side. I just haven't had time to test it out yet.

I've been getting some good ideas from this place and I hope to be around for quite a while.
