  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. Man..it 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.
