Another option to the two gussets on the vertical channel would be to replace the flat bar bridge with a 1 piece gusset (red) that acts as a doubler in that area. If you really wanted to beef it up further you could cap or box both sides in (cap shown in green).

You might want to consider traingular gussets at the vertical supports, extending a few inches along the side, this would provide some resistance to twisting of the frame.

Considering the weight of the racks, especially the larger one, a 24" or 30" diameter wheel is a better choice, your leverage will just be better.

^^^^^^^^This is why I am PROUD to be a member of this place. Everyone is always willing to give a hand.

Bob thanks for the heads up on the wheel size, I was thinking a smaller wheel (around 15-18") at first but after getting the small one built and then weighing it I wasn't sure how a smaller one would work

Thanks for the great ideas all. I knew I wanted to add some gussets but I wasn't sure what they were going to look like. Now we have all kinds of ideas.

I really like that idea for the doubler Will work for BBQ. I think we will incorporate that into the big one and I may add a triangle piece to the top of flat bar to make them look the same. The smaller rack is too far along to tear apart again

Awesome ideas keep them coming

Since it is not my build, or my money, I am gonna throw this out there.

Have you considered the idea of attaching, or accomodating, a rotisserie somewhere on the unit?

Chain drive or cable drive? I know cables are easier and all, but, using motorcycle chain is a very cool and beefy look. If you go cable, please use a cable that is thicker, you can get them at Westmarine, they look better than that stupid mini-cable people always use.

I'm about to opt for a cinder block cooker and fabricate a grate that can be raised and lowered with some sort of crank system. i want it big enough to double as a small pig cooker and fire pit.

BTW, very cool build. Looking forward to the finished product.
None on my end of the state either. I'll be watching this one. Our fab shop is slow right now,so a government project would be good.

Landarc,

You can read minds can't you!! LOL I've been wanting to talk about that for so long now and I continue to forget to ask. So any ideas that would work really well. Any sites you can recommend or can you recommend one for me? I found these: http://spitjack.com/category/ROTISSERIES.html , but I don't know if this is what I need or something different.

Can you show me a design I can incorporate into the grill?

Also on the chain vs. steel cable can you tell me how to incorporate a chain and what would be needed that sounds awesome. How would the chain wrap up when raising the grates etc..??

Thanks again!

Very nice build . Mine isn't stainless, but this is how I dealt with the vertical supports, and it works great.

Dave,

Do you have a shot of what the entire grill looks like. I want to see what you did at the top and see if you have a wheel or ??

Thanks!

Mike
