Can you guess what these are? (probably pretty obvious!)


This build seems to be a bit time consuming in the details... might have to rethink all those little details if I wanna ever get done!

Thats it for now...
Cheers

The details will distinguish this cooker from all others! Most of us have seen a smoker build and sure they all vary a bit....but this one is the bomb!

I haven't had ANY time to work on my pit leading up to the holidays but I got a little time to fiddle around with it today. I mounted on the handles and I started Working on some better hinges. The set that was on there was royally pissing me off in terms of door alignment. They were too thin for the heavy door, so I'm beefing them up a bit.

Here's the handles:




and here's the basic design of the new hinges. Just have to cut, bend & weld tomorrow or thursday.


Here's the current resting position:


And on a side note my wonderful wife gave me a farkin cool, spankin new auto darkening welding helmet for Christmas and it works like a dream! "Night & Day" if you will...


Well that's it for now. I'll more than likely have some more to show Thursday night. Planning on getting a bit of steel too!

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
Cheers

After reading about all the stuff you have been cooking I'm surprised you have the time to work on your cooker! Looking good!

Your handles are awesome! I bet that auto darkening helmet is awesome too. I keep telling myself to get one.

What size is the unequal leg angle that you used to make up the hinge? Also, what diameter is the round bar?

where do you guys source your tanks from and how much do you typically pay? I found one around here, but the guy wants $250 for it and it's 400 gallons, waaaaayyyyy more than I want or need....

You know I can;t remember how it popped into my head... I think it was when I was walking the hardware store.. That's where these things usually happen.

The bar is 3/8ths and I just placed the bar in the angled iron and took a straight edge to it to see where I needed to trim. Cant tell you a size right now... It was basically cut to fit.

I think that guy's asking WAY too much for it. Look around. I'm sure you'll be able to find better deals. As well as a 400 gallon tank is pretty big. Do you need one that big?

Cheers
