FirePan mod for the ecb gourmet

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i did this, cause i couldn't find a grill grate to fit the fire pan........with these holes, i can shake the firepan, and have more ash fall out......if you notice........i place holes around the main vent hole in the ash pan this fits in......don't want ash building up in that hole, since i modded the ash pan like i did

drilled 5/16ths' holes to start out with......this way if i need to, i can drill larger.......

That should help out Dude. Like the full choke 12 Ga 00 buck at 40 yards heh!

I like the side hole idea too...might just try that out.

I think I'm going to put in some expanded metal in the bottom as a trial run one day. Cut out the bottom of the charcoal pan and install expanded metal.


I have two Cookin' Cajuns and they are designed just like the Gourmet. As a matter of fact I believe that's where the design originated.

So did you have any regrets of doing this and not putting in grates?
