Default New smoker almost done!

A couple months ago I told you guys I was having a smoker built by a local guy that was recommended to me. I took him a drawing of what I wanted. The only adjustment we made was to have the stack set up for reverse flow because i've decided this was the way I wanted to go. I've got a buddy that can get m 1/4" plate pretty reasonable and i'm going to tackle that once I get it. We're prepping it to make it pretty easy for me to finish off. I have absolutely basic welding skills but I could manage that part of putting a piece of plate in. Anyhow until my buddy gets back to work in a few weeks i'll have to make do. I was only able to get one quick pic while I was working but here it is:



You can see we're building a large tray that wraps around the side and front. The Tank is 100 gallons, and overall length is somewhere around 9' i'd guess. He said it should be done in the next day or two. It's going on 4 wheel casters so I can put it out back on the slab i'm pouring Friday. Man I can't wait!
