Roadside Find

Check out the grill one of the neighbors was throwing away:



It is about 7 years old, rust eat out the front wheel assembly. Had to prop it up with chunk of pecan smoking wood. Had to replace the fuel line also. Otherwise, everything else is in decnt shape with a little cleaning up. PCI grates, built in smoking box and rotisserie burner. Gonna add it to my backyard collection.

Prop that bad boy up on anything you like ~ As long as the inner working are in good shape, you can't beat that with a stick! Well, maybe you can...

Yeah, with no problem. 46000 BTUs brought the bad boy up to almost 800 degrees.

Going to the hardware store to get a new fuel line. Hope to use it tonight to grill onion wraps for grilled pizza.

If you have problems finding parts, let me know. The wife works for a propane dealer and sells VC along with others.

Thanks for the info and giving back, Dee Dee. I have a couple of things I would like to order and the number will sure help.

And don't be such a lurker round these parts. We are all learning and sharing. It is the best part about this board. I think I speak for most of the people on this board when I say please make yourself at home and join in the experience.

PS - don't take anything your read too seriously. We like to monkey around.
