Default Modified Stick Burner

I had to scrap my old stick burner earlier this year as it was just flat worn out and the repairs were too much

I picked up a Char-Broil Silver on CL for $20. The side box was never used, in fact the previous owner put the hinge on the door backwards and it would not open.

I fixed the hinge, cleaned it up and decided to add a diffuser plate

left it solid a few inches at the fire box side and then offset pattern of holes getting progressivly larger

I really liked the Yoder that Nucornhusker got and how he tested if the heat was even
I took a guess at what I thought would work being conservative on the smaller end so I could enlarge if needed

Built a fire to season it up

Got the cheapest Walmart biscuits for the test (Thanks for the idea Nucornhusker)

At the turn it was cooking more on the exhaust side so I flipped ends

The first 75% was real even heat and the last 25% was about 10 degrees hotter. I may leave it this way and try some cooks so I can use the hotter area if needed. I can add holes on the left or enlarge the ones already there if needed.

I thought I would just toss out the test biscuits but I tasted one and they were smokey awesome. I threw on some bacon for a quick snack

took the rest to work and they were gobbled up!
I think this mod will work out just fine! SD

I can control the amount of smoke / heat in how I tend the fire and what I fuel it with. I do tend to like more smoke than some people
