I have owned several Wally World specials over the years, and attempted a huge build several years ago that failed. After snooping this forum for a few weeks I finally decided it was time to do it right. I have a good friend the owns a metal shop, and has been fabricating for years so tools wont be an issue. Cooking chamber will be 28 inches diameter and 36 inches long. With a quick cut of the plasma cutter the CC was cut to size. The fire box will be 20 inches in diameter and 25 inches long. It took some figuring, but we got it attached. Then we capped the fire box end of the cooking chamber. We ran out of time at this point, and we wont be able to work again for about a week. I will make sure to get plenty of pics. Until then happy smoking!
