Default Nice Job Cous'

My cousin stopped by today to help me move some furniture. He and a friend of his are avid hunters. The wanted a cooker to smoke some deer sausage and some more std Q items on. Being from "the farm" my cousin was able to provide the torch and welder, the friend some of the materials. Nice rig for their first attempt, still a work in progress but I've provided them with a few hints and some links. By the time they get this one tightened up, I hope they're ready to start on mine! :D

He said they needed to add some mass. It tracks good but the springs are definitely underloaded.

Looks like then are going to need a platform to stand on while tending to the grates and fire. Also, isn't the smoke stack mounted too low?

Not at all; it's just right for smoking a whole cow.
