Where is the exhaust going to be located?
Looks great BTW!
Thank you, Sir!
I am still considering tuning plates. Saw a nice design on one of the pro smoker builders websites.
Exhaust will be on the left hand side (same side as smoker).
Why cure the cooker before painting? Just curious because we already burned a fire in it for 10-12 hours when we cut the door out of the tank. It won't be getting that hot again!!
