It is as good as it is going to get. This is my 1st restoration of a metal cooker and I learned a couple things. Most important is the prep, where there is rust and peeling paint it is best to take it all the way down to metal. I sanded to a point and it felt smooth by hand but as soon as painted the blemishes show.

Oh well, it is just going to get dirty.

Before



After, Still need to do the shelf and have some old wood laying around that I think will make a nice one.



A few random shots, I think for now I am going to bypass the wheels and use it as a stationary smoker.





Sprayed with oil for seasoning



Some Mesquite lump for the burn



Cranking right along



Threw on a couple lg chunks of Pecan, makes a nice smell for the neighborhood



Plan on cooking something this weekend, maybe some Ribs or Chicken...

Thanks for looking, hope it inspires others to save an old cooker.
