    My daughter just started her Junior year of HS and I turned 40 this summer. I guess we will have to start looking at colleges this year.

    Whoa, nice! I have a 22" Weber Smokey Mountain, but I find that the heat/smoke seeps out of the opening and around the cover. I tried making some modifications, but it didn't work and I grew frustrated with it. What do you have, and what would you recommend to fix my smoking problem?

    No costco vodka for me for a month. No alcohol at all. Finally leaving the hospital tomorrow.
    I'm not expecting to grow flowers in the desert...

    I bought a Traeger Junior at Costco this spring. You plug it in fill the hopper with chips and set the temp. I really like the convenience and it controls temp reasonably well. 25 pounds was about the limit for what will fit.

    So was the Weber leaking too much and you couldn't get it up to temperature ?
    Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

    Exactly. I'd fill it with the charcoal and wood, and within an hour the temp would sink to 150-200. I read online (after the fact) that this is sometimes a problem with the Smokey Mountains, so I asked for a new loader door and they sent it -- but it still didn't work.

    Probably you have already done all this, but some stuff to check in the article above. Seems like if you have a good ignition and enough fuel and airflow it ought to heat up. Kind of puzzling.

    EDIT- I guess I'd say try it with all the vents open and see if it will burn hot enough, you probably already tried this though.
