Black Beauty:



She atarted out as a #4 Kamado whose previous owner acquired in Japan 40 odd years age. I found her in an estate sale for Yup $10 about 3 months ago. She had no bottom vent or bands.



Original manufacture's mark:



2 tops and some innards:



Had a slight problem and the top became a Humpty Dumpty project:



The outer surface had been badly peeled off, so after fixing the top I used some Quickrete to resurface both parts:





The bottom vent happened to be the same size as a large BGE so got a new one. I had to get a band and the large BGE was 3 inches in diameter too large and the medium was too small. A fellow egger, John Yee, from California mentioned that he was replacing the scissor band on his large with the spring hinge, so we traded for his old band. Thanks John.

Next had to get a welder to remove 3 inches on each side of the front bands. One welder wanted $75 and the other agreed to trade for a slab of ribs, 24 chicken wings and a 16 oz bottle of my chipotle BBQ Sauce. Guess which one got the job?

Now I only need a new handle. Anyone want to trade for some spices? Thanks for putting up with my wanderings.

NOTE to self. Keep under 375F.
