Thats why I did not post until now, all this except the trailer TS120 was on my front porch, with BBQ matts under them. I feel better now and man does our porch look nice. Painted the railings and just the floor to go but so much nicer having a dedicated place for the Que.

I made the cabinet doors out of damn ole PT pine and left over metal from the roof. The bar top is tile instead of solid stone or granite. The sink was reused from a kitchen upgrade. The dishwasher was a freebie -use to be a pull out of the pantry and roll up to the sink type. etc...
Ya I could tell from the pics that it was 1x6 fence pickets. I like the solid wall deal but we have some fierce winds here in the desert so I don't know if it would be ok without some lateral shear to help out with the wind load.

I really like the metal roof that was what I wanted to do. I was thinking of doing the bar out of metal studs and then doing stucco but I might go the rustic siding look like you did I think it will look better and might be less expensive.

Now granted its nothing compared to yours but at least its off my front porch now and as you can see I have room to expand.

The little shed behind is my man cave and still undecided how I will add to it but keep getting great ideas from here.
Looking damn good!! Any thoughts on adding some power? Maybe a hanging fan or some lights... Maybe pull some tunes from the cave

Yes, have both in the cave, just have to run some wire.
Have a frige in the garage, but thinking of adding one to the cave to save a few steps.

The TS120 will not be under the shelter except for winter, just wanted to make sure she would fit.

Man this thread is inspiring. Having had to stuff three cookers on my small deck off the kitchen and cook in inclement weather over the years, I decided this year was the year to build something. Nothing on the level of AMROCKS' masterpiece, something more along the lines of using what's available to start.

I plan on cutting out some sod in my lawn out back, then cutting down some 8 or 10 inch trees on a friend's property for the pillars. Going to mount the tree trunks on pier blocks and use a couple glue lams for cross members. From there, not sure how I will finish it, thinking of just using tree branches to make faux truss supports, maybe redneck it up a little and have it clean, but rustic with some corrugated steel roofing, indirect lighting and hidden speakers for the tunes.

Sounds cool to me!! just make sure to get lots of pics... Wish I would have taken more along the build.

This my sanctuary its not a big area but its well protected from the wind. I have about a 600 sq ft paver block patio for entertaining but my wife would put me on the grill if I got greasy.

How do you choose witch cooker to use? I know it depends on what type of food... but lets say you are cooking steaks tonight - You have five+ different cookers to choose from . Nice toys you got there

Most of my cooks happen on the kettle because I grill/BBQ at least 4 times a week. Kettle is fast to set up and easier to clean than the others (except the gasser). If I was cooking steaks tonight, I'd fire up my kettle.

I just got the WSM recently for my graduation, it hasn't been fired up yet. The rest are used on the weekends for parties/amateur competitions. The WSM will be my main smoker with the UDS as my backup. I need to make some mods to the offset before I fire it up again, I might fix it up and sell it since I got it for free anyways. The ECB is my first smoker, I'm giving it to my boys.

It's fun having them, they each have their own personality...
