Really hot here in Texas right now but I managed to keep my arm on the cooker to get the pic (haha). Well here she is, my new to me GF222CM. After a couple of hours with a wire wheel on a grinder inside the box and various cleaners outside, this is where she's at. I want to paint it but need to put new metal under coal chute lid and add wheels up front first. The racks aren't original but are heavy duty and work fine. It doesn't have a name yet so if ya'll have any ideas fire away. It's older and a little beat up but I love the crap out of it so far. Here's a few pics. STX (Steve in Texas)

Just looks hot in that pic...

Can't wait to see what you do with the chute lid.

As for a name... Hmmm... Where in Texas are you from?

Thanks,

Bill

Great lean, even if it was hot out, we appreciate it.

Throw a couple sheets of folded aluminum foil under that chute door and that will get you by until the door is repaired.

Enjoy the ease and results of your new cooking machine.

Looking great. I loved my GF222CM.

You have mail. ;) 8-)

If you'll call and promise to take pictures, "WE" can do a thread on maintanence of that chute lid. ;) :D

Until it's finished, Mark's idea'll work. I'd probably use several layers of foil though.

BOB
got a call about my Monster Friday afternoon. Not THE call, but a good one! 8-) ;)

Granted that Mr. Stump has many NEW cookers out, but some may say that you have one of the best models he ever built... ;) :!:

Congrats on the new smoker...I dont know what type your coming from, but your where you need to be.....

Even with the new tin in place I'd keep putting a sheet of foil under the chute door, it'll help prevent that from happening again. I started doing that after Mark shared it with us and it cut out all goo build up under the chute door. I don't do the foil plug that mark does but I always have that foil under the door. ;) :D
