There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads!

Rehabbing a $125 Egg

I'm the guy who asked earlier for advice about getting a large BGE into a Prius. It all worked out. For $125, I got the base & lid of what I think is a large BGE, rusty ash door, rusty hinge & bands, fire rings in two diameters (one is broken into two usable pieces), larger and smaller metal grill, ceramic ash grate, ceramic lid cap.

Here's a link to some photos:

No thermometer or iron daisy wheel cap.
I think the firebox is missing, although I do have two fire rings (one is split in two).

I would like to repaint the whole thing at some point and, if appropriate, fill the crack in the lid.

Do I indeed need a "firebox" and where do I get one cheap? What else would you do to this puppy, in order of priority? I'll probably upgrade just a little at a time.

Thanks for any & all help.
