You may have to copy and paste to your browser,I cant get the link to work.(sorry) I have to admit,this was not my idea. I saw an advertisement somewhere on the internet that were selling burners for this conversion,and I rembered I had an old turkey fryer in the shed,and decided to give it a try. I bolted the burner to the charcoal grate that came with the smoker. This gave the burner about 3/4 inch clearance from the bottom of the fire box for air. Then I threaded the hose through the air damper, and set the burner on the bottom of the fire box.The wire grate on top of the burner sits about 1 inch above the burner. That grate I had made a long time ago. I can also use the smoker box the came with the smokey mountian smoker,for wood. Now when I want to use charcoal instead of gas,Its just a simple matter of reaching in and pulling the gas burner out. Swapping from charcoal to gas takes all of 15 sec. You could probably even use the gas to light the charcoal if you wanted to.As long as you shut the gas tank off after you did.I just dont trust the gas hose that close to hot charcoal.
