I scored a gem!

I know it'sa not a smoker, but didnt know where else to put this.

Got this little beauty the other day clearing out a house we had listed. The owner died and her son after clearing out the entire house says to me (as we opened the garage door) - "just throw all that $%&# out into the dumpster so we can be done with it." He didnt car what I took!!!! SCORE!!!!

Aslo got the bigger Weber Kettle in perfect shape, along with some misc. old tools and general "garage" items.

Best I can tell it's called a "Ball-B-Q". Guess it appeared on "That 70's Show" and it sure does look like a 70's era type of grill. Cool little guy...I will use it to grill up some items. Wish I could figure out a cool "smoker" project for it! Suggestions????

Paint it and put it on E-bay .. you might be surprised how much a piece of retro 70's bb-q garbage is worth... but then u'd have to give it to someone else.. for useless green paper of course..

Throw away the lid, grate, hinge, line with foam cover with leather, make a great bar stool.

Is the tube hollow?? Make a platform, run some plumbing tubing to it from a homemade metal box, that you build, & smoke away.
