Default Shirley grill in main chamber?

Hello how many shirley owners have and use their ashpan and charcoal grate in the main chamber? What do you think? Do you ever wish you had a seperate grill on the trailer instead, so you could smoke and grill at the same time? Thanks SBS

Just to be clear... We have an option where you can get a pan broke that comes with an elevated grate that goes in the pan for the main chamber.... The bottom rack slides out and you replace it with the charcoal pan and elevated grate in the pan..... This allows you to use the main chamber as a grill and not get ash all on your baffle plate... I works great if you want your main chamber to double as a grill....

Thanks Paul that is what i was referring to. I am wondering whether the grill/ash pan in the main chamber or a seperate grill on the trailer is a better option. Most of the time it will be one or the other-direct cook or smoking though sometimes it would be helpful to have both options as some of my cooks involve both. Was hoping to hear from some Shirley owners on whether they put that grill/ashpan option in the main chamber to use.

It's an incredibly good looking rig. I hope you're still cooking on it in 50 years

I have the grill separate. I love it. I always seem to be grilling something quick as an appetizer while people are waiting on me to finish the meat on the smoker.

I've done a couple of cooks for the church in the main chamber. I used the bottom shelf for the coals and put aluminum foil on the plate. Now my bottom shelf is a little tweaked but I hardly ever take it out so it doesn't bother me.
