Default The build has begun!!!

I finally got all my ducks in a row to get the new smoker started. Ill pick up the chamber tomorrow around lunch. It will be 1/4" thick and the inner firebox will be also 1/4". It will have 2" of insulation and the outer skin will be 3/16" thick. One of the things I changed from the last build was the trailer frame size. This one is 2x4 ret tubing instead of 2x3. Here are a few pics of today's progress.

Good to see your post Muscrat. Looks like that is going to be one massive smoker! It was good to meet you awhile back.

I'm glad you seen the post I couldn't remember you name on here. I got home from shreveport week and a half ago. It was good to meet a fellow BBQ nut like me. Trying to get done with this thing before I get deployed again. Hopefully it'll be ready for paint Wednesday. Wife and kids are in England so I have plenty of time to work on it!!!!!
