Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by jjwdiver, Mar 9, 2010.

  1. I know it'sa not a smoker, but didnt know where else to put this.

    Got this little beauty the other day clearing out a house we had listed. The owner died and her son after clearing out the entire house says to me (as we opened the garage door) - "just throw all that $%&# out into the dumpster so we can be done with it." He didnt car what I took!!!! SCORE!!!!





    Aslo got the bigger Weber Kettle in perfect shape, along with some misc. old tools and general "garage" items.

    Can't say I have ever seen anything like that. Looks pretty cool.
     
  3. Best I can tell it's called a "Ball-B-Q". Guess it appeared on "That 70's Show" and it sure does look like a 70's era type of grill. Cool little guy...I will use it to grill up some items. Wish I could figure out a cool "smoker" project for it! Suggestions????

    Hey meateater, you beat me to the punch. Jetsons popped in my mind the second I saw it. Anyway, very unique!!

    I've seen em before, perty cool, always remind me of a hair dryer at the wemen's saloon!
     
  12. Paint it and put it on E-bay .. you might be surprised how much a piece of retro 70's bb-q garbage is worth... but then u'd have to give it to someone else.. for useless green paper of course..

    VERY COOL FIND!

    CHEERS!

    Throw away the lid, grate, hinge, line with foam cover with leather, make a great bar stool.
     
  14. I did a search and some fool has one for sale at over $250. Hmmm...now that has me thinking!

    Is the tube hollow?? Make a platform, run some plumbing tubing to it from a homemade metal box, that you build, & smoke away.
