The "new" unit looks great. I just reworked my old Brinkman Smokin Pit by adding a fire box to the side and a general overhaul like you completed. I was especially interested in the way you raised the grate in the fire box. I think that is an idea I will use to modify mine. Thanks for posting the step by step.

Why did you take pics of a brand new smoker and pretend it was the one from the first pic??

But seriously..My question is, without a paint sprayer, can I get a similar coat w/ a brush or a can of spray paint?

WOW! that's really impressive work there Chefrob. I just started scraping rust and gunky stuff off my smoker with a wool cloth and scraper tool but after looking at the before and after pictures, I'm going to opt in for a full restoration. Thanks for posting this link on my roll call post btw. What model Tel-True thermo do you have? I have been looking for pair of those on Amazon and understand that they go for about 50 bucks each. how did you pay for yours if you don't mind me asking? I just ordered a Maverick redicheck remote wireless smoker thermometer but I still want to able to check the levels of heat on both sides of my smoker :)
