Attention Orion Owners - Orion Mod!!!

  1. This will probably piss off the die hard Orion crowd but I like a smoke ring in my meat when I smoke! I modified the cooker to be a WSM/UDS and it seems to be kickin some @$$! Don't get me wrong I like the Orion for what it is but I wanted an option so I created this mod. I like the way the Orion hangs the ribs so you can get 6 racks in there! This mod lets you go back to the original way if you throw the drip pan back in to cover the square hole that I cut out and close the valve on the lid, So no harm done! I will post after pics when I am done. Smells Great!!! Check it out below and let me know what you think! [​IMG]
  2. This ain't a WSM but it werx pretty dern good I gotta say!!! I have some country ribs on it right now Holding right at 235 and I haven't had to touch it since I put them in! I will post some pics when they are done...

    Fred Flintstones car had square rocks for wheels 'til he modded them to roll easier. anything that makes something better for the user is great.
  6. Thanks PigCicles, cman95 (Wayne) and smokin365... Here are some pics of the country ribs & chicken that came off it.

    Not the best lookin presentation but you get the idea.
