    KBQ door pins

    I’m going to bust out a couple pairs of door pins on the manual lathe tomorrow after work. Just wondering how many people would be interested? I’d figure around $10 shipped for the pair would probably be where it lands price wise. Just enough to cover shipping and my time/materials.


    These are the screw and nut I made a couple months back. Basically just makes it so you just flex the door slightly to install and remove.
    They look like this.

    Nice work and great you are offering here at a very reasonable price for custom parts. I don't have KBQ, but think those who do will appreciate.

      I'm in. I have a set of pins from Amazon that BBQ_Bill was experimenting with. I bought his great door handles but lost the door tube. The pins was my next project.
      BBQ_Bill , how are those door pins working?

      It's a bit cold here, but in a few weeks, I will be working on getting my KBQ ready for early spring smoking. The door has been my next project.

      I can try both the pins and your mod.

        The pins are fine. Gotta keep track of them, and wash them just like the originals and the tube idea I came up with. This to me is an upgrade from mine and better because it stays in the frame. The door with a bit of maneuvering comes off, and no spare parts to lose.

        Great idea. I do already have a set up from Bill that works great. Thanks for the offer though. I am working on getting to the controller first!

              Sorry for the long wait (ish?). Life and stuff happens.

              I managed to get 3 pairs made the other day after work. I haven’t test fit them yet, but they’re pretty much identical to the ones that I made previously and am currently using.

              I should have some time tomorrow (Feb 20) to make up a couple more pairs so I could cover all 4 of you, and I’ll see about shipping them before the weekend. Shoot me a PM with your address and we’ll work things out.

              Included will be the pins themselves as well as nuts. All stainless. Let me know in the PM if you want me to put a drop of Loctite 472 on the threads for you. It won’t cure until you actually assemble the pin. I found that putting the nuts on just finger tight works well.

                ComfortablyNumb probably UPS. Unless that doesn’t work for some one for some reason.

                USPS kinda put a sour taste in my mouth recently so I’m gonna steer clear if I can.

                I don’t even know where the closest fedex location is to me.

              $10 seems a bit low for making and shipping these. Just saying.......

                OK, in the interest of erasing yet another area where I am totally ignorant, I'll ask: How are these different from an ordinary bolts/nuts and what is the purpose of putting them through the metal as shown?

                I'm ready to be embarrassed by my ignorance. Don't spare me.

                  There really isn’t a huge difference. The only difference, is that the end is cut to fit into the outside frame of the door to act as a pivot so you can open and close the door.

                  The KBQ comes standard with a solid rod going from side to side, making it not possible to remove the door for cleaning purposes. By cutting the rod off and installing these the door becomes easily removable.

                To me, the sweet difference is that this is very quick.
                These stay in the frame, with the door "popping" off nicely as needed for cleaning or assembling racks and pans for a smoke.
                Another plus, is that they stay put, and don't get misplaced.

                    Bellefonte Smoker

                    I have sent out a few of pairs already. I’m waiting for them to let me know how they work on other people’s KBQs before I would make more and send them out. Seeing as the KBQ is just bent sheet metal, I’m not sure how they fit versus in mine.

                    Hopefully some of the guys get them installed shortly. Ill keep you in mind though!

                        The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

                        the good one grill

                        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                        Their NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
