I've been looking for a nice santa maria grill with a lid and every time I find one I like it takes more than 7 weeks to get it. I need one less than a month. I have a welder that's done a ton of work for me so I know I can make one. The only part I need help with is the part that raises it and lowers it. Does anyone have any pictures of a cool way for it to raise and lower. I was thinking about using a racing steering wheel to turn it to go up and down, I want a lid so it's got to work with a lid. Anyone have pictures of the track, crank , gears etc. I'm sure my guy can come up with something but wanted to give him ideas on how other people have done it. Any help would be cool. I'm going to try and build one next week. I found one that was already made but it was a little too big.. So building one at this point is my only choice.
