hotpit, morning.... The smoker is looking good......
They do look a bit close to the firebox, but if all else fails and they are taking on some heat, just get some 1/4 plate and make some heat shields to block the heat from getting to the tires directly. I think Lang uses these on a few of their models.
so since previous pics, ive split door into 2 small doors, but still one large opening to accomodate a full pig smoke if I so desire. Ive also used a fairly inexpensive stainless steel shelf from a online restaurant store (65$) Also, with cutting door I now have to create 2 handles, and in doing this, I decided to use aluminum tubing and some acorn nuts to add some more bling!!
okay guys i finally lit it up with a log lighter burner and propane bottle to test draw and how even temps are. if you look close in the pic it says 275, but i put an oven thermometer on cooking surface and was at the perfect 225* at any place i checked it, was gonna do a batch of canned biscuits in it just see how it browns, but propane tank is empty, so maybe tomorrow i get bottle filled, also got handles polished and wheels polished up, now to finish storage on trailer, lights, paint and this pig will be done!!!!
couple updated pics of polishing work to the old salvage yard wheels, and aluminum handles, and also the diamond plate that im using on trailer
also notice the bullet shaped lug nuts? those are from the hot rod shop...........
