Some of you know the story. Last year I gave my brother my OKJ to use since I was playing with a WSM. Well the WSM was stolen out in California at a park Tri-Tip and all. So anyway a few weeks ago I am at my brothers place and he had neglected the unit badly so I took it away from him, brought it home, and started a complete cleanup and advanced mods. Last year I had the firebox welded together. Yesterday I had it sandblasted and the firebox welded to the cooking chamber. It is glorious so far. Expose size NASA paint go on tomorrow as well as a cure and season session. Anyway here is the progress so far. I am also going to grind down the older firebox welds so they are flush. That RTV crap SUCKS BALLS!!!! I have a propane kit on order. Cannot wait.
