2. Is it easily mobile without the casters or should I buy the optional casters?
3. Is the BBQ Guru worth the price or should I try it without first?
4. Is the Guru an easy addition if not purchased with the unit?
I would really appreciate any advice or tips provided.
a- Heat diverter
b- Upgraded charcoal tray (I had to add mine [read: order it and take it to a welder]) Much harder to add it later. With the upgraded, it slides in & out, making reloading much easier.
d- BBQ Guru adapter from Backwoods
e- Extra charcoal holding tray: I wrap it in foil, and place it over the water pan, as a drip tray. Makes cleanup much easier.
Stainless doors if you can. Buy your casters at Lowes. I got 5 (1 extra) and all the mounting hardware for just under $25.00
Rub it throughly with canola oil, and burn for 2 hours.
Best cooker on the market, IMHO.
