    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 . . .

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

    Default Bbq

    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.
