This belongs to my mother n law. been sitting in a corner of her cousins property for the past 10 years. I was livid by the time i got this 350lb monster home that i didn't stop to open it up and check it out. Gonna take a bunch of work. Thought i'd restore it to good working order for her. The metal is still in pretty good shape. On the bottom side it has a crank handle raising and lowering the fire box.
Something I didn't see was the fresh air intake. Thinking i'll need to increase the air flow in it and make a raised basket for the charcoal.
The smoke actually comes out of the stack. So that is pretty cool. Not sure how good the air flow is or if there is potential for making it a good smoker. I already own a horizontal side draft smoker but the metal on this is so much thicker than mine. Thinking it would be much better from a thermal standpoint.
Should I just throw it in a corner and store it for her?
Potential to make good equipment out of it?
Last thing I need is another bbq.
I'll take some more pix tonight and if there is interest i'll throw em up here.
