What do you guys think about using a pot belly stove as a firebox and running a stove pipe/chimney into the bottom of a gas grill (Weber silver c) where the grease pan is? I figure I would have to rig some sort of grease pan inside the cooking chamber and cut a hole in the lid. What else would I need to do? Would I do any damage to the burner if I left it in there while BBQ'n? Thanks
I can't figure out how to post the pics so here are the links.

I think a hybrid is a fine way to go if thats how you want to do it. Youll need a smoke stack and a cap on it to keep the rain out. And a bottle of Crown Royal. Happy Holidays

PM teleking and he'll post some pics of his Frankensmoker or whatever he calls it. It's really cool and works.

I have seen pics of Frakensmoker and Bride of Frakensmoker.

I am looking for a way to use equipment I already have, e.g. the Weber gas grill and the pot belly stove.

Does anyone have any pics or suggestions for doing this type of hybrid?

Hi Orion welcome to the forum!

I fixed the pictures for you.

When you load images into photobucket you'll see the box to the right of the image where it says "Image link code" there are 4 sets of code, you can see in the next image that the bottom code is blue, this is the code for

IMG Code - Forums & Bulletin Boards,

the line of code including the [img] and [/img] is what you need to copy and paste on your post.



Welcome from sunny SLC today, stay safe in doors it's a nasty day out there! Wink Laughing Wink

It's my only one. I am keeping it for my cabin that I don't own, yet.

Here is a site I found while trying to determine value.

Very Happy I figured ya wasn`t in the selling mood but thought i`d try anyway. Very Happy
Hard to find them little buggers around here. But always looking.... yup some are worth a bit of cash too. Wink
Of course one can get some thing similar but nothing like the old stoves.

Hope ya get that cabin some day, if not it would be a great little stove for the garage or that corner of the house where ya find that nothing looks right..... but the potbelly stove fits perfectly. Very Happy
