Have used chargriller for 8 years without side fire box, will continue to use, However Found this at walmart, Royal oak brand. $245.00

Its large and heavy, over 200 lbs. Was impressed with the thickness, weight, and metal wheels. Even the wood looking shelfs are metal. It is about half again bigger than the Brinkman smoke n pit. Any way cant find no info on the web or even at walmarts web site...
Was hoping a few of you had this model and had some hints and tips. [img][/img]

Yes, I was just looking in the search area for such a thing. I found some nice photos where some have used rivits to secure the gasket. That seems the way to go. I do not suppose it makes much matter if The gasket is put on the lid or the box.
Thank you kindly.

That actually looks like a pretty nice smoker Tic. can you please tell us what the dimensions are on the the cooking chamber. It might be something nice to strap to a trailer for tailgates. can you seal the firebox with some sort of high heat sealant, or do you have to use rivets?

A gasket is probably a good idea, but if I am looking at this correctly, is the damper on the stack closed all the way?????

If yes that should not be closed at all with the fire controlled at the fire box.

Yes I will get you the over all dimensions with the cooking area dimensions also. No problem at all.

Yes the damper was open just a 1/4 inch. I was not cooking.
The real temp outside that day was about 25, and I had just got it together,put in some hunks of wood started with a chimney starter and grabbed the camera to send a photo to a buddy.

This is my very first side by side and i was not aware I want to have the damper open all the time. Learn something new everyday. My chargriller has no fire box.

Tailgate? Im telling you guys this thing is heavy It took two of us to load it at walmart .Around 235lbs

Congrats on the new pit! Nothing like getting new toys!

As the others have said, for most purposes, the exhaust stack should be left wide open when cooking. Helps to prevent stagnant smoke and creosote... best piece of advice I ever received about cooking Q.... "small, hot, clean burning fire = no creosote or over smoked food"

James.

Doesn't Royal Oak make charcoal also? Maybe they're getting into the BBQ pit business. You might want to research a charcoal basket tic. It'll give you a long steady burn. Good luck with your new cooker. Most importantly, have fun!
