Cast aluminum pot for smoker?
From what I was told, this pot is cast aluminum. I've seen different people on the forums with smokers that are made out of pots this size, etc. This is a military issue pot, the lid says 1953 and the pot says 1972, not sure the difference. Is this something I can use? I'd love to have a real mini, I have a 30 gallon uds, and this is a 15 gallon pot, perfect for smaller foods and I would definitely use it for camping/hanging out with friends. I tried to put a 18" Weber grate in and it is too big, any advice on other brand grates, or should I just make my own? Thanks in advance for any info.
