Default My Finished Vertical Build (Pics)

I made some mistakes and had never welded before this project so was a learning experience, but my first ever build is cooking ribs finally.

I love the diffuser plate, can be removed to make adding lump and wood chips easy, and for grilling chicken.

Looks like it works. I am not familiar with verticals like this, what are the spigots for?

Back ones are grease drains, I think the other is an air intake.

exactly right.

I will build a second one this winter and correct the mistakes I made.

Thanks everyone for the comments and not laughing too hard at my welding, and lack of squareness. I figure it will look just right after a beer or 10 :)

Might weld some short pieces of angle above shelfs so you can pull them almost all the way out without tipping.

I built this into the shelves, a piece of angle iron that goes under the angle welded to the sides. This is on both sides of the grate so I can slide it all the way to the end and it will stay there. Worked good. i did make one quick rack this morning that did not have that and it was a pain. I will fix that rack also.

Cooking on something that was built from your hands is so much rewarding than if you bought it!
