I started this project last week, I was able to get the door cut out and the hinges attached. I hope that I can have it finished by April 20th.

 

It is 21" across the front, 15" IS Diameter, and 3/8" thick.

Cooked at 210-220 left side 240-250 Right side for about 3 hours, Used Charcoal and Char-Griller Gourmet  wood pellets, Marinated them over night with A1 Dry Rub Sweet Mesquite BBQ and McCormick Grill Mates Barbecue.

The bottom on just had the spices listed above and the top on I put that and my own BBQ sauce on.

Left is with BBQ sauce right is with out.

 

They both came out nice and juicy with a nice flavor.

The only thing that I have left to do is finish sanding it and then paint, but I am in no hurry to do that. I do plan on smoking some ribs this week end, the Pork loin was good but I prefer ribs, and I think I have some wild boar and turkey in the freezer, will have to check out some recipes for them.
