I don't see nearly as many of these as I use to, but I'm pretty excited how this one turned out and wanted to show it off a little bit :)

I've had one for years, and the parts for a second one. They are cool units. Nice work on the logo and the bat is way cool.

That is definitely cool. I made two of them in the past and they are not just a fun project but you end up with a darn good little cooker as well. Since the 14 inch WSM came out you don’t see many folks making them anymore. Good job.

How are you protecting the lower vent from plugging with ash ?

Interesting, I'm not familiar with this modification/improvement.
Is that large aluminum stock pot in the middle with some sort of hole arrangement cut in the bottom?

Please enlighten those of us that are less informed. :wink:

Yea, there are several options as you will see. I basically came up with the orginal idea on another site. I use a 2x4 in can. Drill holes on the sides near the bottom and invert over the vent holes. You don't need big holes nor do you need a lot of them as you will be almost closing the vent anyway.

I used a $0.97 stainless pet food bowl from walmart and used a dremel to cut some triangles out towards the top.

Thanks! I got a little over eager removing my stencil before the paint dried 100%, so its messed up in a few places. I'm really happy with how the bat handle turned out, even if it does look a little phallic from the side.
