As I wait for the Storms to die down to do some Smoking I thought I'd attend to some upgrades I've had in mind:
First off an Ash Pan for the FireBasket. I acquired an old ECB WaterPan and
fit it to my FireBasket. I drilled 12 holes around the pan under the lip to allow maximum air flow to reach the coals:
Addition of the AshPan to the FireBasket, in effect, raises the FireGrate 2.5" closer to the Cooking Grates. But I don't think it will matter much because of this:
I'm trying this 19" Disc Harrow Blade out to see if there is an improvement or not to Heat Distribution. From the picture it's hard to see that the blade is bowl shaped. I have it placed 6" above the FireBasket.
I have a 10.5 pound Brisket I'm hoping to start around 4 a.m. before I go to Work so the DrumPit will be unattended whilst I'm gone....Wish Me Luck...
