Your build looks great! The only concern you may need to think about is the wood close to the firebox. You might want to check the wood from time to time and make sure it doesn't get too hot.
I started a couple of butts early this morning and realized I put a couple of 1 gallon milk jugs to close. They are filled with the drainings from the RF tray. If I hadn't caught them when I did there would have been a big cleanup on my deck.
I'm not sure if it's the picture or not but you might want to level the unit. I have mine sitting at a quarter bubble above level, opposite end from the firebox.
Again, great job!
Thanks, I'll keep an eye on the heat next to the wood. That's not necessarily where I plan on storing it but my regular wood rack is full up of fireplace stuff and that's my good hickory and pecan wood for the Thanksgiving job. I'm also a little worried about the caster wheel but during the test burns it didn't get that hot. I'll watch that as well. As far as being level, it is a little nose low in the picture but that was how I ran it during the test and it didn't seem to mind. I have about 10" more flue height than the calculator asked for so that may be helping it out there. It really draws well that's for sure.
