    Smokey's got yer back there. Mods? Dump the water pan...bein in the cold like me? I use a tuning plate of my bottom grill wrapped in thick foil. In the summer the water pan MAY make an's a temp regulation device for keeping it DOWN.

    Well I already moved the legs to the outside, and making legs for the Ash pan, working on the damper for the hole in the bottom.. (mine has a Big hole in the bottom) do I need more or is this one enough??

    next I'm going to work on the top... New Therm for the lid vent holes etc...

    I still haven't figured out what to do with the original Temp gauge hole Leave it open or cover it with something....

    Any other mod suggestions would be appreciated...
