Well either nobody got what I'm up too or nobody cared, either way, here's a video of where I'm at.
I'm a little slow..... but..... I think that is a burner/pan lifting/lowering jack to put wood in the smoking pan..... Holy C#$p..... that's cool....
Now for the biggie..... do you lay awake at night designing that stuff like I do at times ??? amazing what you can come up with when you are supposed to be asleep... Dave
Dave, I do drive myself nuts sometimes. I don't know how to build something simple. Every time I turn around I think to myself, there's got to be a better way. And that normally leads to being sidetracked. But once it's in my head I have to build it, sometimes it doesn't work. In this case, I'm ecstatic about how this is working. You nailed it though. Going to have a lever on the outside of the fb to adjust the grate/pan. Will have notches at different levels so I know where it's at. This way if I adjust the temp I can adjust the pan level to maintain tbs. What do you think?
It will be interesting, as to the outcome of what it has to offer.... .....
One side project wrapped up.
Well got a little more done here and there this week. Really hoping to buckle down and get a lot done this weekend. Still got a ways to go but little by little I'm getting there.
Yes, this is the door of the cc. Have something a little different planned for doors.
Got to cut plates to fill in above the masking tape.
All sealed up.
Reducing the size of the fb door, hopefully to retain more heat when open.
Nice work...... Aren't you glad they make smokers that need mods ???
Definitely! Btw, should I of started a new thread seeing how this one is named thermostat mod and I have moved way beyond the thermostat? Or is there a way to rename a thread?
Great looking conversion.I have been following this thread for a while. Keep it up.
At the top of the thread is a pencil.... click on it and edit the title.... You can add to the title also.... Dave
Thanks, I'm staying at it.
Ahhhh, I see. So what do you think is an appropriate thread title for this build? I was thinking new braunfels mods.
How about new twist to an old smoker
Sounds good to me.
Lookin' good Johnny....... .....
