Broken Door, again, and Home Depot Henges
« on: December 22, 2009, 02:19:45 am »
Ok, this time I took a fall and took my OBS with me. I busted up the plastic on the bottom of the door.

No place for the bottom hinge pin, so I am considering getting a set of utility hinges and mount the door from the side.

Any body else been down this route? 

As an OBTW, my OBS is almost black on the inside, and smells wonderful with noting in it!

Hi Starship;

Haven't seen you post in a while. My only concern would be the type of fastener you use. A metal screw in the thin sheet metal may have too much stress on it. But I know you will figure it out.

Gee! I'm giving advice to the man who replace the back of his smoker with  heavier gauge sheet metal. ;D


     I
         don't
                   inhale.
  ::)

Good thoughts there, but:  I have my OBS mounted to the cart with 4 self tapping sheet metal screws, and when WE fell, it did not budge from it's mounting! My foot got the beating!

How about trying to get some replacement parts from Bradley?  But, maybe your way will be more fun.  ;D

Did you happen to get any pics of the fall?

J/K glad you and the Bradley are basically ok.

Well...  next time you're carrying your smoker in one hand, your camera, and a beer in the other, and you happen to trip...

The door repair with Home Depot henge's worked out very very well.  I will post pictures if anyone wants to see the door. Cooked spare ribs this weekend and they were good!
