    Thats the same exell spread sheet. This site also has a working sheet for the folks that do not have Exell. It's just not on the page that opens with that link. I will look around and see if I can find it.

    Can't wait for more pics, someone is going to end up with a Fine looking rig.

    Great Job.

    Thanks gents, but unfortunately I only have xl viewer so ever thing usable is, for me that is, worthless as t..$ on a boar hog, and I'm having trouble w/the link on smokering for the download, perhaps site maintenance, I'll keep trying.
    As I said before we are trial and error guys and some times we hit it and sometimes no soap. Again thanks for the information. BTW, the pit is looking good.

    Nope, that was done with the MM 250. Absolutely has to have a trailer, it'll be an integral part.

    The smoker is really coming along. Got the trailer almost all done, just have to figure where the center of gravity is gonna be once the smoker is mounted and mount the springs. Still have to finish the cooking racks and the grill rack, come up with some handle material and build the cover for the grill and door for the fire box. Here's some pics.
