hi there, kudo's on Learning to weld as a "seasoned" person. I have a stainless pit on the back of my rig that I fabbed out of a piece of 8" stainless. It is one piece of pipe made with "bullplugged" ends. any welders bible will have the correct way to lay out and weld up this particular procedure. You will need one and a half times the length of pipe you desire for the size of the pit as the half length will provide the pieces for the "plugs". other than the desired size pie all you will need is some hinge material and some bar grating to hold coals and provide a cooking surface above that. also some smaller dia pipe for an exhuast stack, maybe an ash tray under and some thing to cover the stack and regulate draft through the chimney. If you want to send me your mail addy I'll try to download some pics and send to you of a 12" stainless one I've built.(same principal, different size pipe).
I've been welding and fabricating for over 25yrs. Guess what? I just got my dream toy. A Fender Stratocaster. I CAN NOT play, but I'm **** SURE gonna try. You are never too old till you'r dead. Keep practicing!
