After my Son recently refinished a deck for a friend of the family this old left for dead smoker showed up at our house...
I guess this old smokey didn't look right on the freshly recovered deck.
Turns out that this is a New Braunfels "branded" smoker that was built after Charbroil apparently acquired the company.
The frame appears to be missing some parts as it isn't very stable. While moving the smoker one of the wheels fell off because it was missing one of the "speed nuts" with the plastic hubcap.
I pulled the axle out removed the other hubcap and cut some new 3/8-24 threads, installed a few spacer washers and finished the assembly with a some chrome washers and a chrome acorn nut to secure the wheels on the shaft. At least I can move this thing around without chasing down a loose wheel!
My Son noticed the work and said "Dad, why stop there...pimp that bugger".
I have a media blaster so I can work at cleaning up the steel but I sure could use some ideas on the "pimping" part.
Anyone good at making silk purses??
