I agree with Countyliner, Without a counter weight one little mistake could take some finger off. It could happen with a weight as well but it would give you a second of two to get your hand out with one. Looks great! Keep taking pic's.

I have been making some progress still. I only manage to get about 1-2 hours a couple of times a week in the garage. I have the shelves made, mounted, and all the expanded metal in place. The last pic is of the firebox material that was delivered this week, some assembly required. The biggest problem I've been having is finding a common point of reference for measurements. I have several marked on the surface of the chamber, and also on the trailer frame, but keeping things straight and square is proving tricky. So far the farthest thing off is just under and 1/8" off of straight, so I figure I'm doing O.K. for an amateur. After a couple of suggestions here, I am definitely going to add a counterweight, or some type of lift assist before using it. I just have to figure out what type and what I want it to look like.

Looking great, Chris!
Wish I had time to come out there and see it in person, or maybe even give you a hand.

Keep up the good work! And, during the move I came across some extra green and white high-temp paint (I know those are your favorite colors).

Thanks for the reply's everyone!

Scott.... You can keep that green and white paint to yourself! I have an idea in mind of what I want it to look like, but I'm still a little up in the air about the whole thing. I'll be making progress as I get time, but I have 2 weeks off for the Christmas holiday, so hopefully I can get it finished and season it then. Shouldn't need to buy much more for it to get it functional, a couple of therms, a hole saw, and probably a gas refill for the welder and the heater and I should be good to go. Oh, and the exhaust stack material!

Had a lot of slow progress, I had planned on getting a lot done over the holiday shutdown, but ended up getting sick and spending most of the time in bed. The firebox is built, door on, and I got it welded onto the main chamber today. Still have to finish up all the welds, but it's supporting itself. As always, some more pictures to prove it happened.

Thumbs up What a fun project to watch

You are doing a great job of welding and fabricating from what I see here. It will be very cool to drive up somewhere and make some great BBQ and while bragging on the good eats casually mention that you built the dang thing...
