Hey guys just got home from Home Depot with a Masterbuilt mini charcoal grill for $20 and the base works perfectly as a new charcoal pan. It has an adjustable vent and holes for ash to fall through into a catcher. I mounted the legs of the ECB on the outside and it just lifts right off. The height seems almost the same as the original charcoal pan too. Gonna smoke some ribs tonight.
