I just asked for a dry ice quote. I sanded the nose of it yesterday afternoon. Thankfully it is mostly straight open panels.

Been thinking about this today. Would it be better to work at this with flapper disc vs regular sanding discs? My goal is to remove surface rust/flaking paint and give paint something to adhere to.

Yard Friendly - Probably not. But I use to use the stuff to strip steel CO2 cylinders and it worked Great. Brush it on, let it dry, wash it off. Dry and Paint...

I'm sure flapper discs on an 9" angle grinder would work as well, but the size of your new toy would make that a WHOLE LOT of work!
Could turn the cleaning project into a party... Invite the gang over, hand everyone a beer and a sanding block and tell to go-for-it! Hmmm.... Maybe start with a couple Kegs and a case of 16oz Solo cups... That's a BIG BBQ!!!

This looks like something I've seen people use for a small business for parties looking for someone to manage an event bar-b-q.


Hope you make the best of it.

Wow, that is a monster! I couldn't afford the propane for that, much less the beer, pork, chicken, it would take to make it useful.

Actually it cost me less than $12 in split oak to run it for basically two days. It now has 3 coats of high heat paint on smoker and trailer!
