So, it's been raining on and off since friday. Didn't really get anything done on Saturday but I think yesterday and today have been pretty productive.

Finished up the seals on the doors (have to finish up the welding on them)
Cut and welded up the frames for the food grates out of some 3/4 square hollow section
Welded 3/4 16ga expanded metal onto the food grates.
Cut and mounted the slide guides for the food grates.

Had some probs with the doors closing after welding on the seals, so that took a bit of time to remedy, I have to clamp and torch the lids to get bend fit I wanted back.

But overall, I think its coming along. Starting to look like a smoker now. Should be getting some scrap metal that I can use for the firebox this week. Got it sourced through a friend so hopefully I won't have to buy a full sheet of the stuff!

Well I guess that's about it. Please tell me what you guys think so far.
