First stick burner
Hey all. I've been wanting to build a hog roaster for some time now. I use to borrow my buddy's roaster when I needed one, but he passed away last year and the roaster passed to one of his kids who live out of state. So I've been looking around for the material I need to build one. I finally got the nod from my better half and started searching on craigslist for a trailer axle and a tank when I came across this unit for $500. I figured I would have that much or more into building one so I went to look at it today and brought it home. It has a couple small places that need a little welding/patching, it was pretty dirty inside and the firebox had a bunch of ash packed into it. But I got it cleaned up this afternoon, power washed everything, including the deck and started repainting it. I ran out of paint before I finished but I'll get some more tomorrow and stain the deck when it dries out. I hope to fire it up tomorrow and cook some ribs on it. This is my first stick burner, any tips?
Never let common sense get in the way of a good disaster.
