I love my grill.. I really do. I also have a propane "box" style Smoker that I used to start out. It was a good learning smoker because it was easy to maintain the temperature, but I found myself wondering what else was out there.

Ultimately, I made the transition when my 3rd gas grill started shooting flames out of the bottom of the grill towards the propane tank. It wasn't like I was buying a cheap gas grill. Each of the three were at least $200.00.. Anyways, I decided the make the switch to Charcoal.

I do love the Chargriller.. It's a great grill, and a wonderful smoker.

Your cooker isn't really built to run on straight wood a combo of charcoal and small sticks or chunks of wood be your best bet. The vent on the fire box and size of fire is your temp control. Building a charcoal basket would give you some longer burn times and better temp control. Your other issue is ash and it's removal so the fire can breath and burn clean.

Add a baffle between the firebox and cooking chamber along with some tuning plates will make cooking on it much easier.
