Update to my previous post...

Just got back from the shed uncovering the old Brink. I do see some differences in the two models for sure. One key thing I may have to account for is the firebox, as the Bandera has grate supports at various levels. The Brink doesn't have any supports, so not sure how critical that is to the function of the fire box. It does have a grate that sits approx 1/2 in or so above the floor of the firebox. I know the fire brick will negate the use of that. My guess, taking my UDS into account, is building a firebox w/ feet to elevate it for "breathing" room.

One other question is the box opening between the two models. Haven't measured mine yet, but wondered if that would make any difference....

Will post more as I dig into a little more.... Hope to get some Brethren assistance here!
