A buddy of mine is moving and gave me this.  It's pretty rusty.  I'm trying to decide if it's worth saving.  It's heavy duty for sure.  It probably weighs a couple hundred pounds.  He said he only ever used it for griling by putting charcoal directly in the top.  Said he never used the firebox.





Looks like I got a new/old chimney starter too





This is access to the grates.  Not the firebox.



Here's the firebox down below.  Maybe this is meant to be wood fired?  Not sure how I'd dump a chimney of coals in here



Backside



Here you can kind of see the approx. 3"x3" hole from the top to the firebox below



Same shot a little wider



There are two grates in there.  The top one looks like it might be coated.

So if anyone knows anything about this grill/smoker, and what I should do with it, I'd appreciate any input.

Thanks!

Looks like a POS and you ought to ship it to me tomorrow.

Just kidding...I see a lot of possibilties with that. It's a good name, that I can tell you. I would make it a project and clean it up and see what happens. it is definitely a stick burner I would think. Nice find Dude!

I think you should give it a steam cleaning and send it to me. The fact is that I can use it year around and you have a very limited window in the spring and summer.Nice score my friend

Before you go to all the trouble of cleaning it up, why not just clean the top grate & smoke something. See how it turns out before you invest your time in restoring it.

I'm with Al. Clean it up a little, smoke something. If you like it restore it. If you don't then restore it (or not) and then Craig List it. I know if I lived near you and you didn't want I would come get it in a second.

I'm with Al, Do a test run

Then a few tweaks if needed.

Then do your restore.

From where I'm sitting, it definitely has potential.

Keep us posted.
