Want to pimp my BBQ.

I have a twin chamber charcoal grill with the adjustable coal grates.I am going to add a rotesirary(no cut outs provided) as well as extra vents and added steel plateing for heat retention.I am also looking for ideas on makeing it into a propane charcoal combo.Not at the same time mind you. I need a design that is quickly changed from one to the other.I know this is a pretty vauge question, and if any of you have ever tried something so crazy than you are the ones I would like advice from.It would surely be cheaper and safer to buy a gas grill but not as much fun or rewarding.

You may want to consider some fireplace bricks for heat retention. They are cheaper, hold the heat longer and can just be laid in place.
