Got some more done today. I didn't get to put in any damper work because this took more time than I thought. Got the smoker door lip welded in as well as the meat door lip. Weled on the smoker door hinges. I have a slight gap in the closed position. I hope the latches will seal it up. If not I will have to get some type of gasket. Waiting on removeable hinges to arrive for the meat door. Welded up a grate out of 3/8 rebar. Need expanded metal for the basket. Still need to make the ash tray, weld in stand offs for the racks make the dampers, and cap the ends. I am going to make some type of dome for the top. I don't like the idea of a flat top accumulating build up and dripping down on the food.
I need to get this thing done before the weather turn too cold.
