It looks awesome!
Can't wait to see it up close.
Keep up the good work, Chris.

It's gonna look even better with a fresh coat of green paint in it!

Thanks everyone for the kind words, and encouragement. I don't have any new pics right now, as I've only made limited progress this week. I have three sides of the door cut, and two hinges in place. I ran out of O2 for the torch last night, and had to go get another cylinder tonight, then it all went down to toilet. My torch is acting up, and I'm at a loss right now as to what is wrong. going to get some advise tomorrow at work and see if I can finish the last cut on the bottom edge tomorrow night. Should have pictures of the open door by this weekend. BTW, if anyone is really good, with an O/A setup and can lend me some advice, please send me a PM, I would appreciate it.

Default I've got a door!

Just a couple of pics of progress. I managed to get the door cut open tonight. Still need to add two more hinges, but it opens and closes!!

Good looking build! Do you have plans that you're working off of or is this a "Got it all figured out in my head" kinda deal?

Love to see more as it progresses!!

Knucklehed,

This is one of those "I have it all figured out in my head kind of things" I'm an engineer ( well almost, have 4 more stupid classes to go, all of the important stuff out of the way.) I'm always looking for ways to make things better. I started out by drawing a set of plans, but those have gone out the window. I'm using the excel spreadsheet that is floating around the internet to do my basic sizes and area calcs, but other than that I'm flying by the seat of my pants. It's more exciting that way.

I take it in order to build one you have to have a plasma cutter and some good equipment. Right??

Good luck. Looks like it will produce some serious eats and Q

You should do something with those galvanized fenders to cook on them. Nothing like a chicken cooked on a galvanized skillet!

LT7, I have an oxy/acetylene rig, a mig, stick welder, grinders ( handheld and bench mount) whiz wheel, and a large assortment of hand tools. I would love a plasma, but just can't justify the cost right now.

Jacob - I made the hinges out of 3/4 black pipe, and 5/8 solid rod. Filed the weld out of the inside of the pipe, and used a grinder to take a little off of the steel rod till I had a good fit. Time consuming, but cheap and durable.

SmokinTurkey, I had planned to flip the fenders upside down and install burners under them for side dishes

I believe it was knucklehead who asked about the excel spreadsheet, its floating around the internet, no idea who actually made it anymore, but you plug in the size of you chamber, and it gives you firebox dimensions, firebox to chamber openings, reverse flow size, chimney size etc. I may have lost it last night when I upgraded my computer to Win 7, but I'll find it and post it here if anyone wants it. I got it from a post either here or elsewhere, can't remember anymore.
