I really appreciate your kind words man, it means a lot to me when folks get it, since I'm often working on this stuff in a vacuum here. If you ever decide to move forward with building one hit me up, I'm happy to help any way I can.
You got it Brother Matt. I'm right there with ya dude.
But yea, when the time comes for me to build something like that, I'll be wondering/asking how you make heat go sideways. haha

Rock on dude. Rock on.

Well, no one has mentioned this yet but man - you sure can tell the difference from you farkers that live in good weather vs us in the northeast!

What awesome places - but most of those around here are good for maybe 7 months of the year! I am in complete sympathy with the 'drag it
out of the garage' crew. Stuck in the same boat - have a big house, small yard, big garage.... I cook all year but there's a big difference between
cooking in the mouth of my garage in 10 degrees in January and cooking in 65 degrees in LA at the same time.....wearing a parka & heavy gloves
(while standing on cement) is a whole 'nother animal than wearing shorts and having a kegerator at hand.... Here, I have to worry about my beers
freezing inside my garage fridge during a cold snap!

Most of your builds are so awesome, I don't know where to start ....phenomenal work and kudos to all who've posted. Just amazing stuff.

Love this thread - congrats to all.... And now, back to depression over never seeing any of this at my place!

Finally got my pit patio finished for the most part. I built the shed last year and just finished the patio the other night. Still need a stainless table and sink set up, but that will come soon enough. I also have a patio bar and stools that need to be arranged, but that'll be in a couple of days yet.

The deck is 32'x10'. Most of it is just sitting on supports so I can pull it apart and move it if I need to. Harder than hell to dig holes for a post here. Needs to be dug with a crowbar and bare hands. Nothing but rocks ranging from potato to muskmelon in size.

Here's some pics:







A few shots of inside the shed
WSM storage



Wheeled racks for charcoal and comp supply storage. The steel rack gets loaded up with my comp gear and gets rolled right onto the trailer.



Smokey Joe, mini-WSM, and WGA storage



More charcoal storage



Hope you enjoyed all of the pics. I can't tell you how happy I am to not have to cook in the mud, grass and dirt anymore. The kids will be happy they don't have to shovel snow off the grass anymore either.

Mine isn't anything elaborate. And it is far from the house. (just in case..)

The tall storage unit has my Bradley electric box in it, and there is a MAK 1 Star parked in the empty spot to the right of my camp kitchen now.

The gasser just sits there and takes up space. I only use it when the power goes out.




Our BBQ shop cooking area is even more spartan. Just the parking lot outside of a warehouse unit. Looks like a big man cave.



Our "mobile unit" (not so mobile now) lives inside, and is hard wired into the breaker box so we can run the A/C, steam tables, fridges, etc.

I'm calling BS on that.

Nice set-up, both of them.

I have that same camp kitchen. Is it okay to just leave it outside uncovered?

It was good for about a year and a half, but then it really started to weather as the moisture got into the shelf material.

I love the idea of heating the seats and BBQ area with the left over heat exhaust...I had never thought of this...But, I am now...I can get rid of the overhead heaters...I need to figure this out...
Thx for the hot tip...

From left to right: Bayou Classic 60K Propane Burner (great for stir fry, flame roasting chiles & chimney starter), GMG Davy Crockett, Mini WSM, Smokey Joe, Hasty Bake Suburban (late 70's), WSM 18.5", PGS K40 gas grill, Weber 22.5" OTG.

Just bought this home recently, so there is a lot of improvement to do to the yard. Need to landscape it and make it a pleasant BBQ'ing environment :) My BF says it looks like a set from Sanford & Son, LOL!
