I've got the big GOSM but would like to use charcoal, I'm thinking I could just buy a big metal bowl and sit it in the opening in the bottom where the burner is and dump the charcoal in there? I dont think I have vents on the bottom, just the top so I will probably have to put in a vent on each side near the bottom. I'm thinking it should be pretty easy to use it as a charcoal smoker but still have the burner in there if I want to use it also. Am I over looking something, seems like this would be to easy.
GOSM convert to charcoal?

Here's something to try if you want to be able to use it with the same capacity as with gas.
- Remove the burner assembly from underneath
- PLACE an ash pan underneath, like an old metal bucket, if using on a deck place a few thin pavers underneath or at the least add a few inches of sand.
- A Galvanized bucket should be fine if just catching ashes, but try to get a steel or ceramic bucket.
- use a vegetable grill pan for the charcoal like below
Then tweak from there.
