Yea I did the same thing, scribed these fire bricks to fit my kettle and made an air deflector out of sheet aluminum , I got 10 hours @225 the other weekend with this setup

Here's my brand new EO Detroit Lions Team NFL Smokey Joe. Picked this up from CL for $20. Couldn't believe it sat sealed up in somebody's garage for the last 17 years.

He's like an hour and a half away and just I'm leaving he calls me d says he was getting it out of the shed its been in for 26 years and discovered the box was all rotten up one side and the bottom and if I didn't want it he's understand, or drop the price if I wanted it.
The auction went to 190 and I was prepared to pay that and put it awAy in storage.
So I arive there and he's all apologetic and opens the box and its all complete and mint, we strip down the layers and there's rust on the triangle leg shelf things axle and it did look pretty bad, tiny bit on the charcoal grate and tool holder. Other than that its brand new, then he says I feel so bad and don't need the money you can just have it, I said well here's 20 bucks and left with this....








That's the rust






I love it!
