Char-Griller Mods

This is just a note-to-self, but why not see if I can get some mileage outta it:

I had an idea about making my new Char-Griller firebox smoker/grill a "True Multi-Tasker" ala Alton Brown (Good Eats Be Upon Him).

The firebox has four small bolts (appx. 1.75" long) extending two per side from the front and the back of the 'box. I thought if I replaced those with two bolts that went completely thru the box, I could use the cast iron grates from the main chamber for steaks and burgers-n-dogs meals for 2-4 instead of the P.O.S. wire grate that came w/ the thing.

Mebbe get a small cast-iron griddle to put in there for "Breakfast on the Veranda" or "Greasy-Spoon Night". And I think they would be close enough together to hold my wok just outta the fire to get it "Rocket-Hot" for when Remo and Chiun stop by for some "Spicy Sinanju Stirfry" on the way home from work. (gotta get that one on DVD...)

I'll take some measurements, make a hardware run and report back later...

(Ol' Lady mentioned mods to turn it into a pink pig, she thinks it'll be cute, I think it'll be the envy of all my muslim friends at the mosque 'Cue Contest this coming Ramadan...)

UPDATE:

The cast iron grates are too long to fit in the firebox. Wally-World has a $30 reversable griddle/grill pan made from "seasoned" cast iron that should just fit in the 'box. As soon as I can snag one I'll be back with a report...

BZZZZTTT!!!

Sorry Bob, wrong answer!! Thanks for playing with yourself though. We have some lovely parting gifts for you... besides ANOTHER refill on your lifetime supply of Enzyte, we are including a box of Kleenex Brand, Supercalifragilistic-absorbant for the compulsive onanist tissue!!!

The correct answer is: Suggestions to make the $230 paperweight I ALREADY HAVE sitting on my carport a producer of BBQ manna from Memphis as well as various other B'fasts, lunches and dinners.
