My buddy and I built this little beauty over the last two days. Still needs finish welded and painted, but had to share some pics. The cooking chamber is 16x24. Check out the pics.
Is that a dart sport in the backround.Someone has impeccable taste. Oh yeah nice smoker too.
Hey Bear, not many shops left here in Pa and many more closing every day. I would love to make my living out of my shop, but the economy is just too soft to give it a try right now. Maybe in the future I will go for it, but for now I will concede to corporate america and continue with a weekly paycheck.
I have a hard time buying stuff that I can make myself. Not to mention most things are made in a place far far away and I have a hard time giving into the machine.
Thanks Ale, I think it turned out pretty cool. HAven't seen anything quite like it before.
I agree. Might be a nice unit for the small family/single guy or gal.
My buddy got his smoker/bbq welded and painted. Here are some pics of the finished product. Everything not painted is Stainless. He added a burner to the one side for starting his chimney. He also added a little shelf and some rebar log holders. Notice the temp gauge, that was the temp today, it sucked! I think it turned out pretty nice. Enjoy.
Just a little performance update. During his burn in he was able to maintain temps above 400 burning sticks. So far he has cooked a pork loin and a whole chicken. Burning lump and adding sticks for flavor with the unit wide open, it maintains 275 with no problem. Has to add a stick and some lump about once an hour. Overall pretty happy with the results so far.
