Fine then I guess it time to either scrap it or make something elese. I wish I could afford stainless steel plate but yall I make minimum wage working for family so I work with what I can get , I sure dont want to poison myself or others just to get a smoker . Ahh well back to the drawing board.

Try looking in a metal scrap yard in the area.

Might try that or I could look into a refurbished grill at Southern Cookers out side of Orangeburg SC , he offered me one someone returned that he fixed for 1500.00 , might take awhile but he is really good at making them , alot of compeditors use his grills , and I trust him . Plan 2 find a cooker that might be upgrading to a bigger pit that might be willing to sell his for a marked dwon price, I am looking for a wood fired pit, I dont trust gassers.
