    Thought I'd show off a grill the company I work for built and donated to the local public golf course. It was designed by one of our engineers and fabricated by our weld & machine shops. You can cook with propane, charcoal or use it as a smoker. It rotates 360 degrees on the base to adjust for wind direction.


    The flames were the fabricators idea, not in the original plan! [​IMG]

    Ya, only an engineer would toss away perfectly good hinges and install a pulley system [​IMG]
    Really, very nice cooker, plan's on another?? Curious as to how it works, not sure how you could smoke on it, will you get a chance to see it in action?? [​IMG]

    They used pulleys for the upper portion because it weighs over 500lbs. It's built from 1/4" steel, the entire assembly weighs close to 1 ton.

    I've not had a chance to see it in action (don't play golf!), I can't say if they've ever tried smoking anything with it or not. I doubt they build another, we're in the business of making electricity, building grills isn't really what we're about.

    i see hinges in one shot bubba........i think maybe the pulleys are to use this as a grill surface for BUNCHES of steaks burgers hotdogs......my home golf course has steak nite every thursday..........and maybe the hinge door to have a opening for misting/mopping when smoking?



    the i bet the cost of building this would be prohibitive..........

    would love to see q-view of this in action also........

    That looks awesome sisco!
    I like the fact that you can move it for wind direction. My cooker is so heavy, it's a pain to move.

    THAT is a manly grill. You just don't "spritz" ANYTHING on a grill like that!

    Almost forgot, we've got another one, built on a trailer. It's available for free use by just about anyone that asks to borrow it. They built a griddle to fit over the top of the cooking grate, now & then at work we cook breakfast for 150 employees on it. I'll see if I can find some pics of it in action.

    Nice looking smoker Sisco - I sure hope that cable never lets go while someones mopping or turning though! Any safeties on that system?

    Sorry I used to be an elevator/crane inspector - seen some nasty accidents.
