It’s constructed from 13 gauge steel with a hinged top that opens easily and locks into position. Drip pan channels fats to drip tube which drains to a spot with a hook for a bucket to collect drippings (bucket not provided). This prevents charring from coals and allows pig to be cooked without turning it. Charcoal Pan can hold enough charcoal to last for up to 12 hours which is perfect for long overnight roasts. It has a heavy 24″ wide stainless steel mesh grate, adjustable top dampers and bottom vents for temperature control and a built in thermometer on the lid for temperature measurement. Torflex spring-loaded axle minimizes vibration in towing. Standard hitch hook-up with taillights provided for towing. 2″ Ball needed and light adapter hook up required.
