hey all- i did a few mods and included some before and after shots. i cleaned it out, then sanded it down and painted it. i replaced the crappy charcoal grates with some perforated stainless i had laying around. i also fabbed up a heat deflecting baffle from a perf pan my work was throwing away and extended the chimney down to the cooking grates. the thermometer was located too high (and broken) so i relocated the therms to be at meat level. the original front shelf was really small and hurting so i replaced it with a proper one footer. what do you think?
