I'm going to have the lid open when it's a grill for now, but I'm going to drill a series of holes along the bottom with sliders for winter. I'm working on a cover plate for the burners so the grease and stuff doesn't clog up the grill when I'm smoking out of some big commercial aluminum cookie trays. Gotta pick up some new saber saw blades though - the tin snips are killing my hands. To heavy I guess.
I still need to find a single burner for the firebox side in case I just want a hotdog or something. Also make it easy to start a fire. I have a split hose assembly for two separate burners.
Got alot to do yet before my vision is complete ...
