Finally finished the whole thing. Thanks guys thats a lot of information shared. Mine are half built, will finish next week when I have a few days off. Will send pics when done. Thanks to all who contributed. I am looking forward to not tending to every 30 minutes,and feeding bag after bag of charcoal not too mention hauling buckets of ash out of my COS rib ruiner. I have been a loyal KF blue burner, but you guys have me trying lumb. Lowe's has Stub's brand and I've seen RO red around as well. I will also try smoking bacon. The stuff in the stores just isnt worth eating anymore unless I pay $10 for a 1/2 lbs pack. BullS**t
I originally welded in angle iron for grill supports, but I don't like trying to get the bottom grate in. So then I thought about using house door hinges untill I found the guy around page 490 that put legs on his grates. Awesome idea. Mine will have legs. I can't wait to season them and try them out.
