I don't know the first thing about Kamodo grills, and only slight more about Kamodo dragons, but that sure looks to me as a customs job. Whether it is original or custom I'd suggest you start smoking with it like you stole it!
i'll check it out it hasnt been used in years and needs some clean up nad parts the screw down top damper and spring covered type that hold the super heavy lid up need replacing .. need parts . retro fits ?
Parts for these old guys are hard to find. This is my 1967 CasaQ. I took all the original metal and had it sand blasted and powder coated. The naked whiz has some good leads so you may want to email him with questions.
dirtsailor i really enjoyed your story of your Grandfathers CasaQ ! the rebuild was most interesting .. the blue tile Kamodo i talked them into basically giving me $100 . from a clients house which we were doing a kitchen renovation .. sitting by the pool not used and came with the house. i realized why it came with the house when we moved this 600 lb beast. the firebox is completely broken which will be a challenge to retro fit. your pics helped me understand what is needed to get this baby up and smoking .. thanks richard
