With the weather being in the 80's today I'm back at my build. Finished one side of the door and installed the cooking rack guides. This wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. There is a small gap in the middle sides of the doors. I planned on tacking the band to the smoker side then heat and bend the strap and tack it as I bend until is formed to the tank. Then weld the door to the strap and cut the tacks off and grind clean. It worked out well. I didn't get any war page and the band has a pretty tight seal. I will fill the gap with some high heat rtv and you wont even know its there.

 

 

You can see on the far end the gap in the center of the door. that will get filled in with rtv

 

 

 

 

pretty nice fit up

 

 

 

its getting closer... :grilling_smilie:

 

Thanks for looking

Finished the doors and installed the door stops. I need some 1x1/2 flat bar to finish the firebox door and don't have any so I'll have to get to that next week along with materials for the grates....... As soon as it warms up a few coats of paint will clean her up...... I'm hoping to fire the smoker up in a few more weeks. 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for looking
