    OK, finally got it done. I had an old small kettle grill I parted out which made things easier and I think look pretty good :)

    I took the legs off and spread em apart so they'd be wider and lower

    I bolted the firebowl thing to the legs.



    [​IMG]Then I put the old little kettle bottom from the old BBQ inside the firebowl. I put rabbit wire over the vent hole in the bottom and used it's charcoal rack.
    Since it's sitting within the old fire bowl I should get just the right amount of air flow plus it will catch any hot things that fall.

    Then I drilled and honed out the hole for the new thermometer and installed it.

    And stole the vent doo-hickey off the old little BBQ, installed it and drilled holes so I can adjust the upper vents output.

    And I'm done! [​IMG]

    Really appreciate this forum, wouldn't have known how to make this thing work right without you guys and all the help when I asked questions [​IMG]

    Now this weekend I can give'er a try!

    ps, and now a super ugly homemade chimney
