Mods to 2 of my grills

This was posted in another thread but copied here with photos
The wife got me a new Char Broil convertable grill It can use propain or coals the problem WAS it didn't get hot enough (for me) plus cheap wire cookin grills. So got out my micro drill set & increased the orface in burners, now it'll hit 850. In charcoal mode it uses 2 brakets for the coal box to sit on about 1 inch above the gas jets. I bought a lodge cast iron grate & a cast iron gridle I set the grate rite over the burners & place the gridle on the warming rack. Fire that dog up let go for 15 min. plop them steaks rite on the grate for a min or 2 then to the hot gridle to finish em up. Result perfection, beautiful grill marks crisp crust from the gridle. Cookin the steaks in the fire is damm hot more than what the temp gadge reads. works great for burgers too.

Hey I know they is rusty been rainin here for over a month at least it aint cold. Heres my OK Joes with a my home made afterburner stuck in the fire doors air vent. It removes to convert to wood/lump in minutes. Not pictured is the ajustable regulator. In gas mode I can hold anywere from 160 to 400 deg. grate temp all day long. The little pot holds the wood chunks for smoke ... 030272.jpg
