Nice work I have a automatic search on craigslist just for items like this. With a little time and effort you can turn a good deal into a brand new cooker. Then use it or sell it.

I have an app on my phone (Craigslist Notifications) that allows you to enter keywords to search for. If you don't have a smartphone, I believe there are also websites that perform the same function and then email you when a keyword hits.

Here is the "before" of the inside. I ran over it with the wire brush and gave it a good coat of cooking oil - it wasn't in too bad of shape but I think I'll be looking for some new grates depending on how these clean up.

That's just awesome. You must be a BBQ Hindu because you believe in smoker reincarnation.

Great CL find.
Now get a flat plate of 1/4" steel to go over the firebox for a griddle and you'll be in Fat City!

Nice job! You should send the photos to Southwest Smokers. I'm sure they would be proud.

You did great. Even if you can't find some wire grates, you could easily make some from expanded steel.
