I gave my Dad a charcole smoker a few years which he never used. So I decided that i would repo it and convert it over to propane. I picked up a turkey fryer off craigslist for $25 and sold the pot on craigslist for $20. $5 in the burner didn't seem to bad. Here are some pictures up to this point.
The equipment before modification
Stock charcole pan
Turned it up side down, found the center, drew around the burner and got out the plasma cutter.
The hold isn't quite round, but should help with air flow?
Test fit of the burner.
Final mounting of the burner.
Can't wait to get home and fire it up. More pictures when i start working on the smoke box.
