    Melted-

    The plan is to try it on the floor first and if it doesn't burn well to build a rack out of 3/4 round stock.

    Bistineau-

    The guy has a food grade stain less table that is about the same height. He requested that a table be omitted at this time.

    Fwiw, the handle on the door will be a piece of turned Arizona cypress. Should look nice. Thanks for the comments guys, this has been a fun build. I have learned that 3/8 is a bit thick and if I do it again I'll build it out of 1/4".

    That's a really nice build. Again excuse my ignorance of smoking but isn't that a lot of iron to heat up just to cook something? I'm thinking of fuel efficiency or is that not a consideration once the party's started? On the other hand it should stay hot for quite awhile with not much fuel to sustain it I suppose.-Meltedmetal

    Thanks Lance.

    Yes that is a ton of metal. Some people use propane setups for the initial heat up. I'm going to make another one out of 1/4" for personal use. Cheaper and lighter plus it is thick enough to hold heat nicely.

    Did you make those hinges or buy them? I've been trying to find some but no luck. The cook chamber door hinges I mean.

    I ramped up my search today and actually found some. Posting the link here just in case anyone coming along behind me is having trouble finding some.

    Looks great

    Smoking is all about Low heat 165 -185 deg.F. Slow and smokey for long cooking times.
    Say 7-8 hours over moisened Oak smoldering flame.

    Yep. Those are the hinges. I recommend them. Makes it easy. I used barrel hinges for the firebox but I like the cam hinges better.
