Default Need photos of pits with square doors please

my buddy and I are building a 120 gallon RF that is giving us some trouble with the door. We have tried all the tricks to fix it. We were bummed out about it, but my boss at work is very nice and gave me all the steel I need to make square doors. Now I would like to see some photos of pits with square doors, barn style or any other doors then round.

thanks

Brethren k.a.m went with an alternative door option on his big hybrid comp rig. I don't think the door build pics made it onto the Brethren website but here they are from another site

http://thesmokering.com/forum/viewto...=asc&start=480

Mods I hope it's ok to post this outside link.

This is my 120 gal RF the twin door opening is 19x48 with 4 swing out racks. The frame for the doors is built out 5 in from the front centerline of the tank. Building out the front aso gave a big boost to capacity. The only other pics I have are some cell phone pics. I lost a bunch out of my photobucket acct.

its cool, I like the doors Phil C, and BlueTang its cool. your smoker looks cool. I think we are going with a wider plate on top, straight up and down doors and then close off the sides.
