Just thought I’d share a new project. 26 inch performer table and a HeaterMeter inside. Put gasket on the lid and it’s pretty tight. Small amount of smoke gets out but hopefully it will seal with time.

Made a basket out of expanded metal on a 22 inch charcoal grate to convert to a smoker. Pizza pan 20 inch and a drip tray 18 inch for diffuser.

Solid for 22-24 hours in winter for the first burn.

Love the size of the 26 inch

A year later, the weather and heat won over my top, so I made a concrete top

Looks awesome. How did you attach the kettle? Hard to tell from the pics.

Had to get rid of the star-board and replaced it with a slab of granite so it now should be burn and weather proof.

Tom love the side burner so is that a 20# tank underneath the cabinet to fire it up?
Yes the tank is inside the cabinet and while it looks better that way it certainly does take up a good bit space. With a tank mounting kit in hand I did ponder mounting it under the burner but feel it would be a closer to the flame than I was comfortable with at the time. Mostly just use the burner to get the chimney started, it's really not very high output but works ok as I took it off a dead donor grill.

Next up is changing the rusty hinges and pressure washing the cabinet as it needs a good cleaning.
