Brinkman mods done (pics)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
OK, finally got it done. I had an old small kettle grill I parted out which made things easier and I think look pretty good :)

I took the legs off and spread em apart so they'd be wider and lower

I bolted the firebowl thing to the legs.

Then I put the old little kettle bottom from the old BBQ inside the firebowl. I put rabbit wire over the vent hole in the bottom and used it's charcoal rack.
Since it's sitting within the old fire bowl I should get just the right amount of air flow plus it will catch any hot things that fall.

Then I drilled and honed out the hole for the new thermometer and installed it.

And stole the vent doo-hickey off the old little BBQ, installed it and drilled holes so I can adjust the upper vents output.

And I'm done! PDT_Armataz_01_36.gif

Really appreciate this forum, wouldn't have known how to make this thing work right without you guys and all the help when I asked questions biggrin.gif

Now this weekend I can give'er a try!

ps, and now a super ugly homemade chimney

Good job on the modding Ron.
Don't know why others are having issues with your pics, just like two-eyes-up I can see all 8 of your pics on the original post.
