Look up metal recyclers in your area. I have found several around here. They usually don't have exactly what you are looking for, but usually you can find something and make it work. I have also had luck on CL searching in the materials section for whatever I was looking for.

I have now found a steel supplier close to where I work that sells new stuff for under a buck a pound right now, and drops for a little cheaper. For this price, they will cut it to size for me and if I'm in a hurry I will go this route as it eliminates the searching.

looks like a winner. making the vertical chamber out of a tank will be very challenging, even for an experienced welder.

Glad to hear, I purchased a 120/220 arch welder and have been learning trial by fire. I give welders their respect because it is not easy, but I think one can learn enough to build something like this...it's what I am doing. Take the plunge it is a blast. I am looking forward to cooking in this!!

The Build's looking real good so far.. Just make sure you don't skimp on the thickness of the firebox. I just finished a build about a month or so ago. Check it out if you'd like, the link is in my sig. I look forward to seeing your progress. I'll be back to this thread. Best of luck. (and im sure you'll get the hang of the welding, its not all that hard.)

Cheers

Thanks Phrasty, I am still thinking about and searching for my firebox material. You think I am building a smoker and didn't see your build yet??? I really enjoyed looking though yours(several times already). You made a stellar pit, you should be pround of that thing!
