This is my old gal . She is an Char broil American Gourmet. Not my first smoker but my first offset, and the most used !! Tiny little smoker but great for apartment living .Moved on to bigger and better but still softspot for the little workhorse. Like to restore her but other than the gorilla method of diving in with a drill and wire wheel to remove the crust and rust I dont know what might make it easier. Crust not difficult but rust may not be so easy.Any suggestions would be helpfull. tanks !
