Holy smoke I had no idea how much work that is! Was already impressed but re-working a new (to me) pit I recently picked up reinforces just how incredible your talent really is! You make it look easy, a feat in itself. :clap: :rockon:

LOVE those Miller welders! I used to have a Miller Legend mounted on my service truck.I really do miss those days.

Thanks for all the kind comments, I can't wait to get up in the morning and fire it up, The gentleman is driving a long way to get it and I want to have it ready to use for him. Heck I told him today I'll be darned if I am not going to build one very similar for myself. I love it!!!! but I built it too.



Hoss (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/member.php?u=14038) that miller is a 300 amp pipeline pro and it is awesome. It has a caterpillar diesel engine. My other truck has a Lincoln pipeliner 200 on it that I used for years in the industry. But...... I love that miller and we just added a miller 251 to our shop. We are fortunate because I can spit from my bedroom to our shop it aint nothing fancy but it is paid for and we have very good equipment in it. That allows us to offer products at a very fair price with quality being #1 on our list. It is just me and Tyler and his little brother Ross is starting to get into the groove too. He is turning 16 soon and is learning the working in of a grinder and is actually welding some to just not cooker ready yet. But he sure can weld them spears on ornamental work. Thanks everyone for looking and commenting!!!!!!!!

Well we fired up the cooker this morning it took 40 minutes to get up to 250 degrees and I took it to 400 no problem. It shows if everything is sized right you should never have a problem with coming up to temp. I know I saw recent post with people having problems. First of all you should never buy a new cooker and immediately have to start working on it, if you do red flags should start popping up all over the place. This is going to be an awesome cooker I do believe


here are a few pics


No problem with draft

the cooker was running real close from end to end, I know it had no meat on it but with small moves on the intake and exhaust I could easily change temps which I like.
It is up to the pitmaster to learn the pit and aint going to be hard!!!!!!!

bbqwilly (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/member.php?u=30433) Thanks will we have another one very similar to this cooker but smaller for the guy who is building our website. I took the cooker to a guy the other day and he was sick he just paid 11000$$$$ for a 6ft wide trailer with 2 cookers on it
I could have done it for 8500$$ and the quality would have been much better, he did not have a clue we build em. The local outdoor store that sells patio furniture, fire pits and wanting to sale some smaller patio models saw the build and did not realize that we were 5 miles from him. It opened a another door for us too. Hopefully when the site goes on line we will be building some more too!!!!



frognot (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/member.php?u=1414) thanks for the Kudos brother!!!!!

Here is a pic of it loaded and heading 800 miles up tha road

Awsome, Max Awsome - what else can I say! You have been correctly discrete about who is getting this beauty, but maybe you can drop a hint that the brother needs to show off a couple cook threads. I think we would all love to see it in action.

http://bbqgaskets.com/ Justin is an excellent person he will hook you up get the nomex it is self stick and he will stand by it. Tell him TuscaloosaQ sent you he will do you right. They also have some that you put on with high temp RTV just tell him your service and he will point you in the right direction. E-mail him if you need to!!!!!!

I am the one who received this Beast! I would like to Thank TQ and Tyler for doing such a wonderful job on this monster! It is really heavy duty and no corners were cut in making this cooker! It's very efficient and I received lots of comments. I would also like to thank Bunnellship1
For shipping my cooker. You can find them on uship. They were very reasonable and provided fast quality service. I had made plans to pick this baby up, but they were so reasonable, I was able to save time and stay home with my family. I will be posting pics soon. I would totally recommend buying a quality cooker from TQ!!

Once again you Alabama boys are doing it right. It's awesome these rigs are getting made 35 mins from where I live, and even more awesome your son helps. My dad is a great carpenter and I'm thankful he passed those skills on to me, but welding and building smokers is probably the coolest thing a father could do with their son.

Hope y'alls business balloons huge soon, love to see new business in Alabama. Awesome house too BTW. Can tell a lot about a guy and how nice his yard and house is kept.

Mrdeville (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/member.php?u=43875) It was a pleasure doing business with you. you have a mighty fine rig and I knew as I was seasoning it that you would be happy . Although it is a big rig it comes up to temp easily and I cannot wait to see some Q coming off of it.

rcbaughn (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/member.php?u=38282) thanks for the kind words I am a little anal about my grass, that is saint Augustine that my neighbors brought back from florida 40 years ago. We just got some sprigs and overtime it has filled in
