  1. Most days I really enjoy smoking meat with my charcoal smoker,but some days I need to get some things done around the ol homestead, and can't babysit the fire. Now I will have an option of using propane. Photos below.

    Meco 5031..great little charcoal smoker.

    Found this old turkey fryer burner at a garage sale for $5. was covered with grease.

    Cut the legs off. Slotted the top of frame so the wood box slides right in.

    Burner, regulator and hose lifts out. Nothing to dis-assemble.

    New hose and regulator.

    Blue Flame.

    Holding Temp.

    Finished product.

    Less than $30 in parts. Free labor. Two way smoker.
  2. Not sure why the last couple pic's don't post, but will put here.

    New regulator.
