    Here are a couple of pits inspired by rig welder pits. Both are hitch receiver attachments,
    1st is a 10" sch10 SSx16" w/SS shaker screen grill, rig telescopes on 2" in 2.5" sq tube, both 3/16"wt. for travel to and from the Texans games, has a 20" head w/SS expanded grill riding on a 1" SS threaded stock.

    2nd is a similar pit for the BIL while he is in the field, used 10"x1/4" tube, is a take down unit and rides in the bed.

    My pride is a scrapped SS Dr.Pepper 55gal drum w/1/4"and 3/8"SS tubing grill.

    I have others, so not to clutter up the thread, nuff said.

    Good luck

      Now this is my kind of post. Absolutely doggone right. As long as one has fun designing it, scrounging materials, building it, cooking up some tasty meat, drinking a few beverages, and showing it off to friends and anyone else who will listen.........who cares what it looks like.

      I can not see how anyone who spends too much on a mass produced, foreign made cheapo could ever get the same level of satisfaction.

            Should you come across any pictures or have any ideas from those you have made or seen in the past, please share . . . .

            My goal is to make the ultimate "Welders Rig BBQ Grill" . . . . .

            I have seen seen some with plate ends, some with "bull nose" cap ends . . .

            I intend to keep it pure "welders" ie . . . using grinding disk bodies for vent covers, welder's hammer for handle, etc . . .

            Tailgating is really big down here in Cajun country . . . . LSU & The Saints . . .

            So any ideas, enhancements or suggestions are surly welcome . . .

            Thanks

                  You should have it now . . .

                  I'm trying to create a list of features & any pictures I can get . . .

                  Wouldn't it be great to put together a pipeliners "Coffee Table" book . . .

                  One of the few jobs they can't send to China or India . . . :-)

                  P.S. I'm not a welder by trade, strictly an amateur hobbyist with limited MIG skills . . . Have stick, but welds look pretty rough . . .

                  Steve

                  P.S. Your PM box is full, you can not recieve any more . . .

                      I've made a few, all out of 12" pipe with blanked off ends, caps are too expensive and I just don't like flat sides. I use chipping hammers for handles and usually an 1 1/4" ell with a pipe stack and an air shutter on it. Sorry, Don't have any pics, have given them all away. The tops get pretty heavy, which can make them a bit tippy if you leave them freestanding or portable.

                            on my grill I used 12" sch40 pipe. 1/4" plate for the ends. 2" pipe for the stack. If you will weld a peice of 5/8-11 bolt or allthread you can use a wore out grinding rock for your stack and vent holes at bottom of sides. just knock out the left over disc and use the metal part. i used the left over plate for the feet. that way i could let it stand alone or clamp in vise on rig.

                              I'm crrently working on a pit for my home made from 20" casing. The cook side is just a shade over three feet long and the fire box is a hair over two feet long. Overall it measures five feet two inchs long. I have built the carriage out of two inch and I think one inch square tubing. Square inserts with a hole centered in them for five eigths bolts welded into the two inch on all four corners to mount the wheels on. That's as far as I have gotten so far. The rain here killed me last week so I did not get to start on it until Sunday. I'm also having to compete with my wife over shop time while she works on her Harley. I never thought I would have to compete with a woman for shop time. LOL!! I hope to have it done in a couple of days after I come back from work. Hopefully I will get some pics of it on here as well.

                                I built one last year. It has a insulated firebox, sink, storage, burner hidden under the verical cooking chamber and dressed it up with some pig handles I sketched out and cut with a plasma cutter. It is a hit wherever I go with it, and everybody including me loves the food it turns out.

                                I really enjoy cooking on my own creation, BBQ is really enhanced by cooking on something that you created.
