Not new to the board, but got some new gear!

  1. Thought I'd pass along a pic of my latest aquisition. Sorry for the shotty cell camera picture.

    I picked up this rig from my friends dad for $250.00. Couldnt pass it up. His name is Chuck so I'm thinking of calling it the "Chuck Wagon" in his honor.

    It has at least a 4 inch pipe with holes in the bottom running from the fire box up to the front of the chamber. I imagine this makes for good even heat distribution.

    The grates inside measure 29x18 and there are 4 in a row so that's what 6 feet ?!?

    Anyway I'll post some better pics after I do some resurrection. I am lining up a little sand blast action for the outside and a paintjob. The grates are in good shape, but I need to give it a good degrease on the inside from the last 6 years of cooking. I also intend to redo the side cutting boards and maybe make the side tray about 6 inches wider.

    Anyway thanks for looking and thanks for a great forum!
