I have a Brinkmann 2500 propane that has seen it's last days. I would like to convert it for charcoal and I have a few questions and ideas. I will of course remove the tank and burners from the frame and put something over the bottom to hold the briquettes. Most articles I have found suggest 18 GA metal plates or heavy duty foil trays. I am considering unglazed tile to help spread the heat. What do you think?
Will I need to do anything else to the grill? There are holes in the side for a rotisserie so there should be plenty of air flow. What could I do to dial down the airflow when needed?
Am I asking for too much out of this project? Any ideas and tips would be appreciated.
