OK Phrasty, You've got me watching. If you have a complete design, I 'd love to get a look at it. As everyone knows, there is nothing like this kind of smoker in Australia. My brother though... has a heavy engineering business. He's got a plasma table, MIG's and TIG's, bending, rolling and grinding gear. He specialises in servicing paper making machinery and builds custom equipment to pull out 40 tonne rollers etc...
If I get a design, he can make something like this in his sparetime... so, I'll be watching!
