Father-in-law found this old model 16" OJ in North Florida in an estate years ago. It was in good shape when he got it but after a few Butts he left it to rust outside. He delivered it a few weeks ago in a state of rust and we rehab'd it to live again. Local sand blaster took it to bare metal and hi temp paint gave it a new life. Ordered a plate defuser, fire basket, heavy duty grill base and new spring steel handles from Horizon and she'll live to smoke again.
Tomorrow, Easter Sunday, she'll get her seasoning and temp check using a new Maverick 732.
Didn't get things together in time to do the Double Smoked Ham so the Ham will have to take life on the trust old Webber Grill with Apple chucks via indirect. Hope to have a Qview of the Ham on the Weber along side the OJ getting her rebirth seasoning.
Thanks for all the help and advice here.
