This started last Christmas with a Red Stone bullet smoker grill from Tractor Supply. It was a charcoal unit and first thing I did was convert over to electric by using a oven thermostat and 2 heating elements for ovens (a new element can be bent into any shape before it's heated up)

I tried to put pictures in with tapatalk  but there is some problem doing that and it closes the app. Now I  have to get the pictures from my phone to the computer to add to this build.
Heinz, morning...... On the bottom of the page is a choice.... Mobile or Desktop...... I think that changes stuff so pictures work.... Not sure..... I'm always on the desktop......
That is good info on bending a NEW element.... thanks....

Here is my first batch of chicken wings seasoned and ready to go. It was like 25 deg out side and I couldn't get the temp over 200 so I had to put them in the oven what a disappointment, so now I had to figure out how to get more heat? propane would have to be it 
So I took the side burner off my grill and mounted it in the bottom

Here the valve set up on the out side

Iron skillet chip pan, the pan ended up being to hot at this level. I put metal pcs under it to raise it up then the flame would go out so I put a flat pc of steel about 1/4 thick on the burner then set the skillet on a old pulley so it was about 3/4 of a inch up  
This Christmas I got a Masterbuilt Pro dual fuel from Home depot it will be way easer to have multiple layers in it with the door so now to start modifying it!
