Hey guys, after reading a bit on here I wasn't sure where to post this so I figured this was the best spot.
I recently acquired a charcoal Brinkmann Smoke N' Grill from a garage sale for $2 that that has virtually no use on it. Since I already have an old smoker I decided to have some fun with it and mod it as soon as I am done moving and fixing my Durango.
In no particular order:
1). Longer Legs.
2). More Airflow/Better Vents.
3). Modifying the Charcoal pan with a raised grate,
4). Several better thermostats.
5). Seal Lid better (Possibly with fiberglass rope).
Now since I got this for essentially free I would also really like to change its color. I was thinking about Chevy Orange (but idea's are always acceptable so feel free to give some idea's).
However my basic question(s) is this:
1). What tools/equipment would be best used to strip the body of paint without screwing up it's ability to be used as a smoker???
2). Once painted should I run a couple of hot fires through it before cooking on it again??
Any idea's would be appreciated...
