Default Build is done

I finally finished the 500 gallon smoker. It's a reverse flow. Painted it on Saturday and cooked on Sunday. We did a turkey and slab of ribs. The turkey turned out great - moist breast and the wings fell off when I moved the bird out to a glass dish, the turkey took 6 hours and was a 20 pounder. The ribs were fantastic sorry no finished pictures of the ribs...

Right now I have brisket on and will be doing a pile of trout, burgers on the charcoal inserts I made for below the grates. Will post pictures of the trout when done. The brisket is already cooked and shreaded.

Great rig! I love the props for the doors. Do you need a push stick to get the doors open so high?

The doors are not very high, just high enough to clear my head.

I will be mounting hatchets for door handles soon. So right now there are no handles on it so I am using a vice grip clamped to the door to open it with until I get around to mounting the hatchets...
