Default Wood stove as firebox?

I'm pretty excited by the idea of this.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=157655

But I didn't want to hijack.

Has anyone used an old parlor stove as a firebox?
Non catalytics are illegal here and pretty easy to get. I don't think it matters outdoors (yet).
Here's what I'm looking at.
It even comes with the pipe and dampers.

I've thought about it a few times, but never have done it. Most of these stove are made out of cast iron which will make it difficult to weld unless you have the proper equipment.

A former Carribean/BBQ fusion joint here in town, now a Taco Joint uses this commercially. Looks like the exact same stove with the legs removed.

I like it. I'm thinking of something a little fancier on a Harbor Freight trailer.

IDK, you'll need to get in touch with Teleking for the particulars.

Awesome! I didn't see the detail pics at first.
The collar right into the smoke chamber would save a lot of fittings.
Is the air damper on the stove enough to control temp?

The horizontal off set needed more holes drilled for air for thin blue. The up right was good to go with a small fire at the front of the stove.
