    A:  I don't see why not. I used canola oil spray and it worked just fine.

      A:  Absolutely. You can use peanut oil in place of canola oil to season your grates.

        Q:Does temperature fluctuate in the smoker when new wood is added to the fire box?
        by|Jun 13, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes, ignition is often higher than the temperature at which the wood will burn steadily once it is ignited and this can definitely affect the temperature in the main grill.

          Initial Purchase review
          This is a nice value smoker/grill compared to some of the models that do not include the offset fire box. I purchased this with a plan to replace my current Char-Grill 50-50 grill which I only use to smoke and grill. I decided to customize this one with some high temp paint and a splash of Royal Blue color. The 50-50 works good but looks horrible so I wanted to see how it would hold up with a customized paint job. Hopefully this will last just as long if not longer. I will update this review once I actually cook on it and let you know my thoughts on the grill and how well the paint job holds up.

              I looked at a lot of different grills and all the reviews, and ended up buying this one as most likely to meet my needs and as the best value for the money. Overall, I'm very happy with the product, it does a good job of grilling, and it's easy to assemble. The instructions are sufficiently clear and detailed to put together in 1-2 hours, having an assistant makes it quicker and easier. This grill is perfect for someone who does not want to spend on a professional smoker but still want to make some of those ribs you see on tv. The quality is high and durable. The grates are cast iron. THE KEY is maintenance. You have to seasoned it before using. although it comes oiled up already, I used vegetable oil and a brush and brushed it top to bottom. This protects it from rust. I smoked it for about an hour and a half this burns off any chemicals left behind and of course the start of a good seasoned smoker/grill. Use a nylon brush not a wired brush this will damage the cast iron. So far I used it to grill burgers, pork chops, chicken all comes out great. All in all this is an amazing grill/smoker. I definitely recommend this

                Great long lasting Pit that makes awesome BBQ
                Purchased this pit in 2016 and it's in prime BBQ condition and is one of my favorite pits. It's super spacious and has never let me down. It's durable and can BBQ through any weather. Some of my best BBQ has come from this pit and won't stop using it. It's great and highly recommend it.

                  This is my third char grilled. The other two I gave away during moves. My son and daughter also enjoy char grilled. This time I researched mods on Google for better smoking. I took my time and am glad I did. Sealing the leaks and tweaking the smokestack so that the smoke and heat stay in the main chamber. Great product for the money.

                  I will most definitely be purchasing another one of these!
                  I use my Smokin Champ on a weekly basis. Almost all of our lunch and dinner meals are prepared on this grill/smoker. I absolutely love the versatility of it. It does exactly everything I need it to do and more! Weather I'm cooking for just my wife and I or for a large gathering, it has the space that I need. This machine is very well put together and has multiple uses. Weather you want to grill, smoke, roast, bake or sear your meat, poultry, fish, or veggies it does it all!

                    Great grill if you know how to use it!
                    I've had this grill now for two and half years. I bought the cover to go with it and now (after some trial and error) I have no regrets! I almost gave a poor review two years ago. I couldn't get this thing above 250 when smoking and the additional thermometers I installed on the lid showed a large difference from one side of the grill to the other. Then I watched Aaron Franklin's Masterclass on BBQ and that changed everything! The key to getting even temperatures on both sides of the grill and hotter temperatures overall was to keep the smokestack flap and firebox vent all the way open while smoking. This keeps the air flowing through. Manage the overall temps by adding or rearranging wood so that it burns hotter or cooler. This tip made this smoker well worth the money. Remember, it's not a $4,000 Franklin BBQ smoker, but it's pretty amazing for the price. What I love about this grill is it's size and the versatility of being able to grill directly over charcoal or to use the firebox. I'm able to grill enough Brazilian Picanha for 30 people and still use the side firebox to grill some pineapple or chicken hearts. Overall, I'd buy this grill again. Even if I had the money for a nicer smoker I wouldn't spend it. The only reason I would ever upgrade is if I wanted to serve more people, but I don't think they would fit in our house!
