Last year my brother-in-law purchased himself a Green Egg. With this mighty new tool, he had no need for his old Brinkmann Smoke King Deluxe. It was rusted and needed a bit of work. He offered it to me for a project which I graciously accepted. In September I began working on the restoration in my free time. I recently finished it and had my first smoke. Here's the story from start to finish

Here is what it looked like when I received it
Smoker


Firebox Bottom


Lid


I grabbed some Naval Jelly, a wire cup brush, and an angle grinder and began to de-rust

Naval Jelly on the bottom of Stack


Stack Rails


Firebox Lid


Once I cleaned with Naval Jelly, I would grind and scrape to metal. This is the side of the firebox


I repainted with 3 coats of Rustoleum High Temp BBQ Paint


Repainted Firebox


Repainted Stack


The Firebox material is thin. Using an idea from the Ring, I lined the bottom of the Firebox with Firebrick. I got 4x9 split and it was the perfect size for my box. I hope it will help with deterring rust and keeping the box warm.


Test fire for the clean out. I used k.a.m.'s steam and Pam method


My first smoke was 2 butts, Cranky Buzzards Onion, and 2 links








Thanks to everyone on the site. I have been "lurking" for the past 6 months or so. It gave me some great ideas. Thanks - Jed

Looks good, but .... Did you paint the inside? That is not usually considered a good idea if you did.

I did. From what I've read, if you do the Steam and Pam method you are ok. I burned it at 350 to 375 for 3 hours the day before the first smoke.

I agree that painting the inside is not good but possibly not the end of the world either.

You think KAM missed a good opportunity to fire up his "weed burner" <read>? And he's got incriminating pictures so it happened...

Bark, very nice work on your re-hab project she looks great. Very Happy I have never said paint the inside of a cooker or firebox. I do rinse the inside of them then warm them up to dry and use the Pam on the inside to season them. But painting the inside is something that I never do.

I was at the Home Depot and Lowe's today... Made it a point to look into the cookers they had on display.... They didn't seem to be powder coated, more like high temp paint.... Shocked
I wouldn't have a problem eating anything that was cooked on it...After a good high temp session.... Buy that's just the Rebel in me Cool

Most smokers are painted with high temp paint on the inside. With a steam and pam at 3hrs at 350 I thought would do it. I hope I didn't mess this thing up. Should I scrape and grind again?

Bark, I am not sure which smokers are painted on the inside. As hvac81 said the box store cookers seem to have paint on the inside. I doubt you will ever get the cooking chamber hot enough to flash off the paint in a cook except maybe around the firebox to cooking chamber opening. the heat is pretty intense right there. The firebox is another story, if the paint bubbles on the outside and flakes off it will on the inside as well. So you ask yourself do I want this happening during a cook, I would not so the paint in the firebox would have to go as well as around the firebox to cooking chamber opening. The factory paint in said smokers is probably some electro static process like powder coating if not powder coating, your job although it looks fantastic is not to those standards and will most likely start to leave especially in the firebox. I am not trying to sway you in any direction just trying to help. Smile

Some of mods that I made was to put a plate over the
fire box grate to direct the heat into the cook chamber also made a heat deflector to direct the heat
around the water pan(which was filled with sand and
covered with foil.
