Ok...so I'm cleaning up the back yard and as I'm rolling this heavy concrete culvert pipe to a new location (it's been here for 12 years) I suddenly had a brainstorm. I noticed the recess in the top and wondered if a BBQ grate would fit...the grates from my smokey joe fit perfectly! :-P I'll let the pics speak for themselves.
I'm headin' to Home Depot to see about a flower pot for a lid (ala Alton Brown). Do you think the concrete (2 1/2 inches thick) will handle the heat? Thoughts and suggestions welcome! :-P
^^^^^ LMAO.... What is it over 80 out there today and you guys are getting a little punchy???

If you are able to find one of those cheap 26 inch Sears kettles, I'll bet the lid will fit all the way over that.
What a score? Now I've got another think to keep my eyes peeled for as I drive around town.

We've got a bunch of them at work that used to be outdoor ashtrays-now that smokings banned 25' from a doorway they are headed for the rockpile!
I'll bring a few home for you JD and you can do a Stacker mod to it!

Looks like it has a lot of potential. Let us know how well it cooks.

Coat it with furnace cement. If it absorbs moisture and it heats too fast it could explode. If you "seal it" it might be safer.

yes some long small fires in it to drive out the moisture would be a good idea

That's an interesting set up JD, can't wait to see how it comes out.:-D
