this has been interesting.

I was just a Lowes going over it. I see the issues with the feed door. That was the first thing that caught my eye.

And the firebox being bolted, thats an easy fix as I have a mig welder.

I am not sure about the thickness of the body. I did not notice that. I will have to look again.

Did not seem like a bad platform with some mods, but if the body is thin there is nothing I can do about that.

They also had the Chargriller, I discounted that right away as its pretty small and I wouldn't gain anything over my WSM clones with that unit.

This might be more your size. Brinkmann Trailmaster. Its basically the same size as your standard cheapo offset with a little more beef put into the construction. Its basically a smaller OK Longhorn.

Plus its in your price range. $299 from Home Depot.
