    Are you sure it's a P3 ?

    Is the box the exact same size as your Ducks Unlimited?

It's different than my Ducks Unlimited P3 - this one is black, pedestal cart is black steel vs stainless, it has blue pinstripes on the front and on the English/French control panel label and has redwood coloured OEM wood shelves and handle. Unfortunately there is no serial number label (unless it's under the control panel). It's also missing the briquettes (they're inexpensive to replace).
    I can't seem to find any photos anywhere that show this model - it's definitely a Broilmaster - the lid casting is identical to my P3 Ducks unlimited.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Update it's a D3CP which is the less expensive version of the P3 - black painted steel cart vs the stainless steel P3 - all parts are interchangeable.
    I just finished the restoral - stained the wood shelves with grey stain, ground all of the years of black crud out of the inside of the lid and base of the cooking chamber, added a new briquette grate (the existing is pretty well shot), replaced the burner, patched the rust holes in the base with new sheet metal, repainted the entire cart (gloss black) and the head (Rustoleum high heat black. New no-name made in China thermometer,.The porcelain cast iron grates are shot I have to replace them.

    Good deal on a great project! Congratulations!

    I have a neighbor with a Ducks Unlimited sitting in their driveway. I saw them try lighting the briquettes with lighter fluid a number of times. The actual burner is completely obscured in yak.

    The puerto rican husband laughed at me when I told him it was propane. He refused to allow me to help him rebuild it and he refuses to sell it to me at any price.

    I remember Strother Martin's line: Some men you just can't reach! <g>
