No, I haven't but I probably should. I do hit thrift stores from time to time to restock bed rails and to look for interesting stuff. I will probably end up hauling off the rest of the fixtures I have to a recycler and maybe I can work a deal with them to get some more useful stuff.

Here is another minor update. Since I had the weekend free I tinkered a bit. At this point the kettle from the Performer is committed to this build so I used the parts from the lid holder to do a few things. First I mounted the ring on the left side to hold the lid out of my way. It actually works quite well. For those that are worried, I just so happened to paint that panel with high heat paint so I think it will be alright. I have an IR thermo so I can monitor it as I cook more.



I also used the smaller of the SS pieces that is part of the lid holder. With just a little bend it became a grate holder on the inside of the middle door. This should work well for holding grates for both the kettle and UDS.



Lastly, I used the longer piece of SS to fashion a better bracket to reinforce the adaptation for the burner to use the small propane cans.

So this weekend I had some time to work on getting the back on. Trying to keep costs down I purchased one more panel from Lowe's. The top, center section is hinged so I can open it if necessary for lighting the gas lighter of the kettle. The bottom of the back was kind of pieced together from some of the scraps but worked out pretty good.



You can see here the latch holding the center section closed as well as the cutout for the gas tank. I still need to build another enclosure to protect the tank.



I also used a piece of leftover panel to create a matching pegboard. I used a regular pegboard as a template and drilled out holes as I thought I would need them. This panel is mounted with spacers to allow room to insert the hooks. It is also removable. I plan to have two that can be placed on the back panels or inside of doors when necessary.





So, here is where it stands as of now. There is still plenty of detail work as well as a lid and front doors that I want to do but at this point it is ready for a new UDS. Also, I still need to determine what kind of work surfaces I am going to have. I have debated using 1/2" thick cutting boards but I think regular cutting board material will do just as well. Suggestions?
