I finally did it.....

I have such a wonderful wife.
After months of reading and rereading this post and talking about how bad I wanted one and how efficient they are,she flipped me the credit card last week and told he to go get the stuff.

I found a clean open top and gathered the necessary parts for the build and finally got started this morning around 9:30.

2 1/2 hours and 3 beers later(I drink slow) She 's done and on her seasoning run. Caught her on the way up and she's been holding right between 240 and 250 for the last 2 1/2 hours.

3 intakes,1 open and the ball valve somewhere round 1/4 open and she's chugging right along. Still need to put handles and a shelf on but for right now she's doing great Now all N need it a remote thermo and a weber lid

Thanks for all of the great advice. The build went smooth as a baby's bottom.
