    Well, a couple of months ago my dad's neighbor put out an old gas grill for the garbage man and I tried to save it. Well I decided it wasn't worth the effort but thought I could salvage some of the parts. Last night I got my Orange County Chopper on and started some metal fabrication. (Not really)

    It was a 3 burner gas grill, tube to propane tank, and then a 1/2" pipe with 3 nozzles. I took the pipe and cut it down to the size it needed to be. I took some 5/8" copper tubing and used it as a coupler. I used one to cover an existing hole from one of the nozzles and the other to join two pieces of the pipe.

    I cut down a 1" solid steel pipe for a spacer, and used the existing attachment on the nozzle to mount as well. I drilled three holes in the firebox. Two for mounting and one to put the jet through.

    It was originally supposed to be a fire starter and morphed into a fire starter, temp maintenance, and propane smoker option.

    Here are some pictures of the finished product with different setups.
