    welded sides in , added shelves. thermometer,instead of adding the traditional pipes,headers etc. opted to add a small breather across the back for the smoke and aroma exit..

    tacked together and welded. and the top is finished.. i dont really like the thermometer placement so on the next one i'll make a change.. maybe raise to creat a bump between the top and the first bend..

    thanks..

    i will be working on the bottom this week, adding the vents for air. also building the burner and another stand, or rebuild the one that its sitting on

    the goal is to have it finished by the weekend, and weather permitting paint.
    The first burn will be a rack of ribs !!

    the next project just happens to be a pull behind gas pig cooker. im still gather material together for it, and still choosing again not to use barrels or stacks. nothing against them though.

    finished the bottom today. Added the air inlets to help it breath. Also cut & bent the pipe for the burner. cleaning it up in the morn, weld it and drill the holes. alittle bit of cleanup and fire this puppy up tomorrow hopefully.

    the burner has been drilled and also added the feet for it to sit on the bottom of the grill. fired it it up and as u can see it held 450 temp for 20 mins...

    open the top and turned it down and it held 350 for the same amount of time.
    the flames burned blue as well no orange tips.

    Thanks jbmprods..
    the first dinner shall be a rack of ribs..

    still a little ways to go though.. took a few photos of the burner close to dark...
    thinking a few changes need to be made..

    build a new burner so the gas comes from the center. then drill the ends so the whole burner is alive.. makes it easier to light from one location instead of having to light it twice..
