Great looking build.


If you have time, could you please post some close-up pics of your grate slides? I'm getting ready to start a horizontal cooker and cant seem to get my brain wrapped around a good design for grates that slide out,,,but not fall out.

Thanks

No problem bredrin... Here's what I have on the slides... Very Straight forward. Welded the slides flush with the opening of the doors then attached a piece of angle iron to the top of the slide to hold down the rack. It however does not have a stop for taking out the tray completely, I want to have that option.

Cheers

Time for another update here... Haven't worked on the smoker for the past 2 days due to work, so I tried to get some work done on it today...

•Did a bit of touch up welding to the doors and the rack slides as well that tested out the food grate hold down tab. (in the previous post)

• Attached the legs back to the smoker (they were taken off in order to flip the tank upside-down)

• Smoked 2 home-made sausages and had oversized hotdogs for lunch!

• Cut out the pieces for the firebox out of the 1/4" scrap I got yesterday.

• Started cutting a couple pieces for the FB baffle

• then finally I started to lay out the handles.

Still have a bit more work to do but its definitely coming along... Gonna try tack the firebox together tomorrow, layout the door and all that fun stuff! BTW... I'm getting the hang of the cutting torch! Definitely helping the project along... I don't know how far I would have gotten and on how many blades with just my trusty 4.5 angle grinder!! The torch is a real time saver!!! Anyways, here are the pics of todays activities.

Cheers.

Hey Denis, no. I did not weld the inside seams. I tacked the corners but I take the welds down flat with the grinder so they wouldn't bump when I close the doors.

Cheers

AND SHE CAN BREATH...... well almost! Got the exhaust on today. Man what a custom fit.. lol Had some 4" pipe and I doubled them up for a beefy look, also I want to be able to hit the higher temps. I figure thay can always be choked down if needed. I didn't wanted to intrude on the cooking space (I might curved racks in the corners to add more cooking space) so I had them come off the side, but when I got the 4" elbows, they extended the pipes too far out from the side of the tank, therefor I decided to cut them down to fit in a bit closer. Had to choose to do it the hard way! At least I think it looks better closer in. After all... thats what matters right?

• Exhaust (CHECK)

Here are some pics of the days activities:

Cheers

Looks like you'll be cooking on that in no time!

Thanks for the measurements earlier.

How much clearance do you have between the upper and lower racks? And how much between the upper rack and the top of the cooking chamber? I'm just curious if this size tank will work for my build or if I need to start with a 250.

Thanks!

Looks beefy indeed. Keep up the great work! You're really making me want to go buy a welder and start leaning.

Thanks for the pics of the grate slides, Phrasty. Smack me in the head will ya? I guess I was thinking about it too much and overlooked the obvious solution. Many thanks!
Everything looks great, looking forward to the firebox.

No problem... The clearance between the racks and the grill is about 6" Its a very nice size. If you are catering full time you would probably need a 250 gal. But otherwise this still is a decent sized tank.

The obvious things are usually the hardest things to see. Glad I could help out a bredrin!
