A guy asked me if I wanted an old char griller the kind that is mainly a gas grill with a firebox hanging off the side because he was moving and wanted to get rid of it. I said sure. So when he went to bring it over it was so rusty most of it disentigrated and I came home to nothing but the lid to the gas grill and the side fire box sitting in my driveway. I thought "really?" But I don't waste anything so I flipped the lid upside down and welded some legs on and that was our fire pit for the last couple competitions last year. Today I finally did something with the firebox. I welded a patch in the old throat opening and welded up all the extra bolt holes, then added a stack and some legs. Turned into a nice little travel grill/smoker.

Replace the mass air flow sensor so it will burn correctly. Don't cheap out on that.

Some of the smaller stores won't have them. It needs to be a corporate store with the apple I store.
