Time for another update here... Haven't worked on the smoker for the past 2 days due to work, so I tried to get some work done on it today...
Did a bit of touch up welding to the doors and the rack slides as well that tested out the food grate hold down tab. (in the previous post)
Attached the legs back to the smoker (they were taken off in order to flip the tank upside-down)
Smoked 2 home-made sausages and had oversized hotdogs for lunch!
Cut out the pieces for the firebox out of the 1/4" scrap I got yesterday.
Started cutting a couple pieces for the FB baffle
then finally I started to lay out the handles.
Still have a bit more work to do but its definitely coming along... Gonna try tack the firebox together tomorrow, layout the door and all that fun stuff! BTW... I'm getting the hang of the cutting torch! Definitely helping the project along... I don't know how far I would have gotten and on how many blades with just my trusty 4.5 angle grinder!! The torch is a real time saver!!!
Anyways, here are the pics of todays activities.
