Well ran a few test runs with it after installing some fire bricks to raise the fire rack. Much much better. I was bored yesterday and well thats were the problem really started....decided to build a cart....I am raising the bottom of the door to 42" building a shelf across the front, and a new cart with expanded metal floor. All in all its gonna its gonna make it much more functional. There was a square bung welded into the fire box opisite of the fire door. Any idesa what its for??????

Whats the thoughts on a bbq guru on a offset? Since im already welding it woukd cost me any more time and very little material to add in a bung. I can even reuse where that square hole is on the bottom of the fire box. From what I have read a setup like this is amazing.

I cut my teeth on the Cimmaron. Nice pit.

I think it's a drain, in case you get water in the firebox. I have never taken it out.

Raising the fire grate helps, but one mod I did was to close off the top half of the intake vent. It forces air to come under and through the fire. Of course, I haven't used it in a long time.

Was this the pit that was out around Lake of the Ozarks? I found one a few weeks back on CL but the guy wanted more than would've been worth driving all the way out there on a few pictures and faith..

Either way, its always nice to see a sturdy pit like that find a good home instead of the scrap heap.

It looks like you have the exhaust damper almost closed in your cook picture. I run my Cimmaron with the exhaust wide open and the intake damper open just a sliver or closed and maintain 250-275 all day. The only mod I have done is to put in an expanded metal shelf in the firebox to keep the coals about 3 inches off the bottom; the one that comes with it will get choked out with ash real quick.
