Chicken cooker Powder coated 07.27.2020

Well between bored and always wanting to improve my edge here comes the chicken cooker. It is based on the Squared UDS somewhat.

I have been working on the twin cookers for a bit and finally close to finished. I need door handles and 1/2" couplings for the 3" Tel-Tru thermometers.
Did something a little different on the intakes and exhausts I am going to try slides.

They come in around 85 lbs. It is a charcoal grill I plan on using for my competition chickens.
There is no expanded metal grate I will use grill grates in it.

Added a 3" Tel-Tru therm.
