Great idea! Why the side vent on the cabinet, though? Seems like your top racks would run cool - or was that the point? :)

I especially like the full length shelf. Personally, I should probably put a net under my Bandera's smoke boxes (plural) seeing how many times I've dropped stuff on the ground. Actually, just a bit wider full-length shelf than you have.

it's now on my mod list.

Arlin MacRae, At the time I did it (side vent) I just thought it was a good idea. In retrospect, I'm not sure, but I can block one or the other or use a blend of both, so just more options :~) I'm going to fire it up this weekend and gather some info. I'll keep you posted. JB

Well, I fired her up this weekend after several more mods. I cooked breakfast on the griddle for my girlfriend and I, bacon, potatos and eggs, while I was smoking some stuffed Jalapenos wrapped in bacon. I couldn't be happier with the results, I was able to get up to temperature easily and maintain it without any trouble at all. I played with the vents running the temp. up and down, total control while useing very little fuel. The temp. on the griddle was about 570 deg. average while keeping the smoke chamber at about 250. I could have run it lower, but I was just trying to brown my Stuffed Jalapenos. A very good first smoke test! I will have pictures to post on Monday. JB

That is freaking bad arse!!! Great way to put the heat to use while you are smoking. Just an idea, BUT you could maybe even make some kind of modified wok or harrow disk to make discada or stirfry or shallow fry too. I need to hook up with you next time I'm in Burque Town! Very Nice. I'd hit that breakfast.

Bob

Bob, I'm thinking pizza! I'm going to add a 1/2" plate upper heat element into the lid for a quick pizza cook. JB

Great idea. I'll bet it would even help keep temps up when you're smoking. I put a piece of stainless steel in the lid to hold down heat loss but this looks like it would do even better.
