abunda_amazon_reviews I bought this because I wanted to be able to grill at high heat, while at the same time barbeque with indirect heat, and occasionally smoke meat at a low 225 - 250 degrees. Inherently, this is a great grill for grilling and barbequing at the same time due to the two zone cooking, but you will not be able to get below 400 degrees without modifications. There are too many air leaks which feeds the fire and makes it too hot for smoking. I knew this when I purchased this grill because I did extensive research and planned on doing some simple modifications to control the heat. Well guess what, it worked very well. I can now get the heat down to 250 degrees for several hours. With about $50 dollars worth of supplies, you can turn this grill into an awesome smoker. I cannot find a combo grill, bbq, and smoker for under $300 that will perform this good. Below are the steps I took to improve this grill. Supplies Needed: 2 rolls of 15 ft self-stick Nomex (.875 x .5 inch Lavalock is what I used); a tube of high heat food grade silicone (the red kind); 2 sheets of 6 in x 11 in sheet metal and screws ( to cover the damper). Step 1: Assemble the grill per the instructions. Seal anything that attaches to the fire box with the silicone (screws, smoke stack, and thermometer). There will also be small holes in the corner of the firebox door you will need to seal and the welds along the lid. Do not install the dampers, you will not need them. Step 2: Attach the sheet metal pieces to inside of the grill to cover the damper holes. The dampers are part of the problem with this grill because they don’t close properly so we must seal them to reduce the heat. Step 3: Seal up the grill with Nomex Strips. Apply the Nomex strips around the Lid and on the grill where the lid touches when it closes. Apply Nomex strips around the firebox door openings, and under the grill on the back where the ash catcher and bottom of grill. True up the lid by loosening/tightening the hinges. Step 4: Line the ash catcher with foil for easy clean up. Follow instructions for seasoning the grill and do your first burn off. This will allow you to see if there are any leaks you missed because smoke will be coming out of it. Operating instructions: Now that the grill is sealed, you should be able to maintain a 250 degree temperature with everything closed. Even after sealing, there are still enough air gaps to slightly feed the fire, but not extinguish it. To increase the heat, you can slightly pull out the ash catcher which gives you air from the back bottom, crack open the firebox door which gives you air from the front, and open the flute to get the air moving across the grill. I had to cut off the top stopper on the flute to allow the flute to close all the way. To use this as a smoker, you will put your charcoal and soaked wood on the right side with a pan of water on the grates. Your meat goes on the left side with a drip pan under. This will let the smoke move across the meat since the smoke stack is on the left side. I hope this helps.;;July 10, 2016;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;A great grill and even better smoker with modification (instructions included).;;The Barth's;;;Good product if you put a little effort into it which i shall detail below. This grill has all the features i was looking for as i am no fan of gas grills. For the positives. 1) Love the double coal lift system 2) Love the chimney stack. 3) Ash collection tray is a plus also. 4) Also like the dual vents on the sides. 5) Both the grill cooking surfaces and the coal trays are of sturdy material. 6) Grill arrived in perfect order with all the parts needed 7) very simple easy to follow instructions. would have taken an hour to assemble by myself (i am very handy with tools etc) if i did not do the modifications below. (added another 2 hours) Now the negatives. The grill is leaky, meaning it is not sealed. which won't allow for good temperature control so i added a few things to make it function perfectly which i will also list below. 1) Chimney stack wont close all the way because of a tab they put in. bent the tab back with a vice grip and all was well. 2) Chimney stack does not seal on hood of grill. added some 3/8 nomex gasket on the inside of the seating face then screwed it down to hood. problem solved. 3) The doors do not seal either which allows for air to enter the grill making it difficult for temperature control. Added sale 3/8 X 1/8 nomex gasket to this. problem solved 4) The vents on either side do not seal AT ALL. more nomex tape added 5) the hood does not seal. More nomex tape added to the rim of the hood all the way round. 6) Frame of the grill not perfectly flush on the inside allowing air in. used RTV high temp sealant for this. (make sure its food grade sealant) problem solved. 7) now for the collection tray. This has air gaps everywhere. Also sealed this with nomex but needed thicker tape grade. so used 1 inch X 1/4 inch tape for this. 8) Coal basket spaces a bit large so fairly large pieces can fall through. I have seen people use foil for this but i used small square metal wire mesh for this so that the pieces that fall into the collection tray would be smaller. All of these mods added 2 hours to my assembly and another 30 bux in tape purchase but all in all it was worth it. Awesome grill and now i can control the temperature! Only thing i would add to this is some hooks for hanging the BBQ tongs, etc but i can get something at the hardware store for this and add myself. all in all i am happy but its up to you if you want to put in the effort.!;;March 17, 2018;;4.0 out of 5 stars;;Grill leaks but can easily be sealed..;;Trini Griller;;;This is a great grill. I have only had charcoal grills. I am not sure what people are complaining about with this unit. The heat is adjustable both by venting as well as direct heat adjustment of the height of the charcoal trays. The charcoal tray is much improved from my 10 year old Brinkman grill that this replaces. The charcoal trays always seem to rust out, this tray is actually gauged wire basket as opposed to sheet metal with holes in it to allow ashes to fall to the ash tray. Some of the parts are quite heavy duty, others are cheaper plastic or thin gauged metal, but all in all this grill seems to have what it takes. I have already grilled hamburgers, chicken, steak, salmon, and veggies. All turned out great. Being able to adjust the direct heat on both sides separately is great for cooking. The arms that hold the adjustable charcoal trays seem kind of flimsy but time will tell if they are a problem. I highly recommend following the seasoning instructions of the manufacturer as well as cleaning after every use (inside and out) to ensure the stainless steel stays nice looking as it wouldn't take long for ash build up to discolor. I also highly recommend the grill cover for this unit sold my the manufacturer. It fits perfectly and is good quality. There are quite a few pieces and parts to put together, plan on at least 45 minutes to an hour by yourself.;;May 9, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Great cost for a solid grill;;Tyler
