That should get the job done. The fireboxes are similar to Southern Yankee. What kind of tow vehicle do you have?

Looks good, but too much of a machine for me, wife would kill me, as I would have to try and load it up. My freezer is only so big and I still have plenty of chicken, PP, brisket and ribs left. One can only sigh and go on with life.
Currently using a Char Griller Offset, 2 UDS and a OTS. Continuing to look to add to what I currently have.
