My uncle got this given to him and I'm building some racks in it. Does this look like it would work? Guy worked at a old folks home and built it out of a old bed frame, a food cart an a old brinkman.

Cant wait?  The therm on the lid of that ECB might go ballistic? 


Good luck and good smoking.

Will the firebox be enough for that big chamber? Should I do anything to the CC?

Dave would be one of your experts here?

Being kind of a redneck type?  I would fire that sucker up with some therms and go from there?

Send us a pic of what that lid therm looks like spinning around on its axis?

Good luck and good smoking.

Yeah, the metal on those ECB's is pretty thin. Not sure how it would hold up to some real heat.

Build you a charcoal basket out of expanded metal sheet. It would help beeing able to see the opening of the fire box to the cook chamber. I'm thinking that the ECB is a bit large but it sould work.

I must be one of those redneck types too. Thats exactly what I would do, except I'd probably put a chicken in there with the thermometers.

A chicken would work.

Or my neighbor's cat?  


Good luck and good smoking.
