    Smokey Joe mod

    I use my Smokey Joe a lot, but it didnt get hot enough for me (400 max), so I just flipped it over, put the vent ring to full open, and used a step bit to open all 4 holes (and the vent ring at the same time) to about an inch, and touched up the bare metal with some heat resistant paint.

    What a difference! I can now hit 525 easily.

    Sorry, no pix.

    Yes. I tried to explain...I put the vent to the full open position, and drilled both at the same time for each hole. Worked perfectly, and the vent worked fine when done.

    Sorry Chris

    When you said you flipped it over I thought you meant the bowl and you drilled the bottom vent not the lid vent. Me Bad! 😀
