Default My 1st Build took 8 months

I have completed my 1st ground up build. I did have some help along the way. Borrowed a lot of ideas from the internet. This is what I came up with. She cooks like a dream!
Main chamber is 24"x60"x.375 new steel pipe.
Fire box is 24'x24"x.375 steel pipe encased within 3/16" steel box. Fire box is insulated with 2" ceramic 2500 deg insulation wrapped around 24" pipe and encased.
Fire box door is 1/2" with a 1" insulated encased ring.
Trailer is 60" wide x 10' long.
24"x24" stainless steel prep table.
I can get 9 hours+ out of a 20lb bag of charcoal (5) 4" x4" wood chunks. She will sit at 225 to 235 for that amount of time then drops to around 200. I have not really documented past this.
1st Picture before Paint.
2nd Painted.
I should have done a better job of documenting the progress.
