I want a divided firebox with a baffle to go into two separate cooking chambers. Would need a big arse firebox though.

I know the bottom picture looks the same thickness and grate as mine except my door is on the same side as the smoke chamber doors instead of the end.

Ah I didn't think about that. That would be cool.

Yes, enjoying it very much! Did have some issues today keeping her at temp and steady. Not used to this gigantic fire box so my fire was all over the place every time I stoked it and added a split I seemed to be moving the fire to the back of the box. I will get the hang of it just part of learning a new smoker. I also noticed I have a 50 degree temp difference from the bottom rack to where the gauges are located, which is fairly high on the doors, so when I had the smoker at 250 the temp on my bottom rack was only 200 which made for an extremely long cook before I realized it lol.

Yeah looking at the pics on their site I figured there would be a discrepancy there with their temp gauge location but I'm alright with that since I use a thermoworks. Temps pretty even end to end?

Yep, end to end are within 5 degrees once up to temp. Anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees while it is coming up to temp but pretty sure that is to be expected.

Awesome man! I'm thinking about the 500 gallon with the propane holder, propane log starter, firebox and firegrate upgrade, and spare tire with spare tire mount.

Measured the cooking grates today top is 23 x 53 and bottom is 28 1/4 x 53 so 2716 1/4 square inches of cooking space.

Thanks for measuring! Does the charcoal grill seem well built?

Yes, it appears to be. I haven’t used it yet though so can’t give you any real feedback on how it cooks.

The charcoal grill cools
Well thinner gauge but it’s a grill. It gets up to 400 in there so you have to be careful. I cooked 80 burgers and 40
Dogs in no time at all.

Have some pork belly on today. About 4 lb slap and 8 pounds cubed. Trying something I saw on YouTube lol. Realized my temp issues last weekend are because I have been being to timid with the fire I’m building. She is doing great this weekend
