1st BBQ Sign Logo to be made!
 
Robert Diaz of Tops BBQ commissioned a 3-D logo for his pit. This is 3
layers of welded 3/16" steel, 1/4" round bar all air brushed and hand
pin stripped with 6 layers of automotive grade gloss paint and finished
off with 304 stainless accents! It's truly a unique piece. It will
"float" approximately 1/2 off the surface of his pit when installed.

This is the progression of the project...

on the backside, I welded 4 - 3/8" threaded nuts so it can be bolted from the inside of the pit. It is going on a diamond plate cooker.

Thanks for all the compliments! This is something I'd love to do again for every team in the country :rolleyes:

Would somehow incorporating strong magnets be an option if making holes in the pit was not desired or would heat fark up magnets (especially mounted on firebox) ?
would also consider some type of magnetic version for the vertical door...

Just thinking of options once I get the Klose..but I have no idea of what design I'd even consider just yet.

Very nice!!

How much does something like that run a guy?

I can definitely look at all options since I am a custom business, I can make any type or mount type you would need. I do have access to some industrial type magnets if that is how you'd like to mount it. Keep it mind it's not a good anti theft mounting but other than that, I think it's doable.

These start around $150 but vary on size, complexity, materials and what sort of paint you want. Rob got a great deal on this one being the first one!

WannaBeBBQueen 02-21-2010 09:59 AM

So can we get that beautiful deal too...put us on the list please, love it! Once again Brian you have done an awesome job!! Outstanding work!!

Wow! I haven't been here for a while. I have to say, Brian did an awesome job. I couldn't have asked for anything better. In fact, I wasn't even expecting this to be as nice as it did. Here's some more pics:
