the legs are 1/2" square tubing cut 10 1/2 inches long. I bolted the bottom of each leg in the ash pan with 1 bolt and the top of the leg to the box with 2 bolts each. It would have been easier to weld it together but I still might change some stuff and with it bolted together if I ever need to replace the grate I can just unbolt it and replace it.
It ain't real Q until that precise moment, while watching the sunrise through a wisp of sweet smelling blue smoke, that a tough brisket finally surrenders itself to the gentle heat of an all wood fire and becomes a tender, juicy, smokey masterpiece.
