    I had purchased this Smoker from a Craigslist add back in late Nov.

    As you can see it was kinda a Beater, But it was the old heavy style SNP.
    Picked it up for $40.00 ands it's been a great smoker after a couple mods.

    Today I decided to give it a little quick makeover.
    I went to Home Depot and pick up a couple of supplies and Viola!









    I used some fence slats for the all the wood since they are pressure treated and cheap.
    The whole process only took a few hours and the outcome was better than I expected.


    Fence slats $2.38
    Nuts and bolts $3.00
    High Heat Paint $9.00

    Feeling like you have a new smoker,

    Priceless!

    Glued - what type of paint did you use to coat the outside of the smoker? Was it high temp specific? Thanks!

    Looking good glued. Amazing what a coat of paint can do. Sanded my firebox and repainted it today.

    [​IMG] Looks great and saved money also. Probably got a better smoker than a brand new one. More power to you. Wish you many happy SMOKE WISPS

    I reasoned it right after I finished getting all spiffyed up.
    Can't have have smoker sitting around not ready

    I used the Rustolem High heat rated @ 1200º

    I did all the mods when I first bought it. I just now got around to the cosmetics.

    I wish I would have taken a picture before I started but I didn't plan on doing as much to it. Pus it was in a little worse shape.

    I was just going to put the 2 slats for the self so I could actually have somewhere to put stuff.

    After that I figured. maybe I should make some handles. I had plenty of scraps.

    So after I started that I thought might as well paint it too.


    I might have to do my little one now so they will match.[​IMG]
