Dinosaur

Does anybody have one of these?
I picked it up at a garage sale last year for $10.
It doesn't have a way to control the temp, or any vents.
I've only used it once.

Quite a relic. Needs to go into the BBQ -4-U museum :biggrin:
How did the cook turn out? Might be worth hanging onto if it was decent. Can't have too many cookers, I say.

I never tried a brisket on it, I did a butt.
Rubbery, no smoke ring, it says on the box it can be used as a steamer.
I think thats pretty much what it does #-o
It needs to have some type of vents and a way to regulate the temp.

This is fun time. Punch a big hole in the top for exhast, and punch
some holes around the bottom for vents. Figure out some way to
adjust the vents for some air flow. You may have something.

I know they sell the vents, just have to drill big enough holes.
This thing seems like a pressure cooker, I have to damn near pound the lid on!
I don't know what temp it goes up to when it's plugged in.
Well for $10, I could have the wife make a hillbilly planter out of it

Use duct tape over the holes to control the intake!
