I plan on incorporating exhaust control into the handles. Handles will look normal but under the lid I will have flaps. Turn the handles on top to open or close the exhaust underneath. Waiting on parts now.

Ok I finally got around to finishing my lid. Things you may notice

The handles also control the exhaust by a simple quarter turn you can open or close each.

Flaps are held tight by a piece of flat stock. It also doubles as a support. Without it the handles felt loose. The flat keeps it all tight. It took me some trial and error to figure this system out.

Welded some nuts on as stops. Also a lid hook.

All this looks kind of cluttered underneath but clean on top.

Made some TEE hooks for the charcoal basket.

I have a big basket out of a big weber charcoal grade and a small one made of a smaller grate. I like the smaller one better. I just figured a big one might would come in handy for longer cooks. Not sure....

Finally!!! it's done. All seasoned up will lard. Plan on doing a burn in it this week. Hope to get some meat on it soon. I had a blast making it but am glad to have it done.

Here is the link to a photo bucket slide show of the whole project.

Not always that clean. I actually took about 30mins to clean up my tools and junk before I took those last pics.
