Hey Tish, did the popcorn stop at your place?
Phrasty, this build looks great! How are you doing a stop for the grates to prevent them from accidentally sliding all the way out?

Phrasty, got a question. Trying to get accurate measurements on my tank and when I use the math, it comes up to about an inch and a half SHORTER than the measurement I get when I pull a string around the circumference. I'm using the 2*Pi*radius formula where the diameter is 24.5 so the radius is 12.25 when I multiply 2 times pi times radius I'm getting 76.999 (77) HOWEVER my "string" measurement is more like 78.5~78.75....

What do I need to do? I'm trying to cut my door out as 1/4 the circumference so it should go from 1/2 across to the top... the firebox needs to be 1/3 the circumference from the top of the door. Help a brotha out if you can... PLEASE...

Math will not a good smoker make. Look at it this way, do you want 1 or2 racks? If it's 1 then picture what you will be putting on it. Same thing for 2 racks. That will be the size of the door. If you're doing bacon and brisket then a 20" door does not make sense. If you're doing whole pigs then the 20" does make sense. You can also make a second special purpose one.

True, but the reason for the math was due to how I'm having to mount the firebox and it not being a reverse flow. Not wanting to be a thread jacker so I will start another thread and take some pics and try to get them posted up as soon as I can but being an ag teacher I don't have a lot of time to work on it except for during shop time so it may take a bit.

BTW Phrasty, thanks for the PM Brotha. It helped me figure things out a little more clearly.

Thanks Sly! Don't think I'm gonna have stops for it sliding all the way out, but I am going to have tabs to stop it from tipping over, Dunno if that's what you meant? But I am going to do it like my last build. That design been working great for me.

Hey Tish... This week had been so busy! Don't you love it when work start creeping into fun time...? lol such is life. I should get some more done over the weekend. Not counting on any major progress until then. Want to redo the hinges and get some handles on. Think I have a pretty cool idea for that!

No Problem Brother. Thought you should take a look at this... Could shine some light on the math side for you and offer some proper size ratios for you to work with.

BTW, I was thinking.. since your tank is welded the other way, an easy way to find the straight line of the tank lenth-wise was to level your tank then where your horizontal center mark (from the side) comes around to the front you take your level and mark it off there to get the bottom line for your door. Did that make sense? Im not sure..

Will have my seat pulled up to watch the show this weekend, Phrasty. Can't get over how much you've accomplished with it already! Dying to see your cool idea. This just gets better and better!!

Hey Everyone! Didn't get TOO much done today. Had to be on the road for most of the day but I did do a couple detail stuff on the smoker. I fabbed the handles and installed them on the grates and I installed the hold downs for the grates as well. Also started another little detail part that I'll put on tomorrow. Should be pretty cool!

Here are the pics.

Smoothed off the welds and welded on the grate hold downs.


Made a lil jig for the handles and installed them on the grates as well as I had put the tank on wheels earlier in the week so it was easier to move around.




Here they are extended. Also installed the door stops.


Little sneak preview for a part I'm working on for tomorrow.


Thats it for now. Thanks for lookin.
Cheers
