MasterForge charcoal BBQ is exclusive to Lowes, reading some of the good reviews I bought it. Well, I shouldn’t trusted the reviews, the metal is very thin and gaps can be found everywhere, it’s a very low end smoker. The problem I have is the smokestack, so I used rare earth magnets to make it removable so that I can cover it properly when it’s not in use. Using high temperature RTV silicone and fireplace/stoves/furnace gasket kit to fix the gap issues. See the photos.
How to smoke ribs? I am not going to cover it as I am not an expert, Go google for “2-2-1” method. It’s amazing.
