    Finally got around to doing some mods on the SnP my step-father gave to me. It's always been pretty consistent temp wise, but I think these mods may make it even better.

    Here it is before...


    And with the new baffle...
    Made from 16ga steel, with a series of 15 5/8" holes. No welding on this one. It's just attached using an existing bolt hole from the firebox.


    Another shot of the baffle in place.


    And a shot from inside the firebox...


    Now onto the firebox:
    The charcoal grate has always been too low in the box, causing the fire to choke out after only a couple hours. So, I raised it up a bit.

    Before...


    With the braces welded in...


    Another shot of the braces...


    And finally with the grate installed...



    I can't wait to cook on it! Hopefully this weekend.

    Next project will be to make a new cooking grate. The plan is to set some slide rails so the new grate can be slid in and out for easier loading. Most likely made from 1/2"-3/4" angle and expanded metal.

    looks nice there ... the coal grate is exactly what I need, my first cook the fire pretty much choked out on me, it was still going in the middle tho even three days later I went to vac it out and it was still smoldering haha ... not bad if I was doing jerkey cause it would be easy to keep the low temp in it... baffle tho decent idea I could use something to that affect to keep the bulk of the ashs out of there ....

    I think you are on the right path with those mods. I hope those help you out.
