From 1 Okie to Another, I'd like to see more on this build.

I have got my mounts on my trailer and I will try and remember to get the pictures of them uploaded, but our lives have gotten kinda crazy the last few months and I havent gotten a chance to work on it alot. My wife is about to graduate from masters school and has been very busy with her final paper (30 pages long) and a presentation she had to give one it (along with all of the classes she still has with it). I have been working nights then coming home and taking care of my son all day getting about 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night and then going into work again. Its been a long end of the year but its coming to a quick close and I am moving back to days in January. I will hopefully get more weld time later in the month. Thank you for your desire to see more. When I get more done I will send it this way.

Okie,

How is your smoker coming along? I'd be interested in your progress. What are you doing for hinges on the doors? What configuration did you end up using for laying out the doors 2:00 TO 4:00?

Thanks

Charlie

I'm wanting to build a similar smoker. I saw where you mentioned life got crazy. I can understand that. I too have a wife that got her masters. I kind of felt like I was single again for about two years. Hang in there. It gets better. I see it's been a while since you last posted. I hope you're able to get back to it soon.

Happy smoking,

Well it has been a year and a half since my last post and over two years since I started. Life has definitely gotten in the way of my ability to finish this project. My family and I have picked up our lives and actually moved to Amarillo TX where we are all originally from so that our kids can be closer to their extended family. I still work in law enforcement and we have just bought a house. Been in the house long enough to get all my smoker parts and pieces moved over and hoping to get started on it again in the near future. Some of tall have asked a few questions and I never got a chance to answer so hopefully I'm not too late.

Charlie, I ended up cutting my doors at 12 and about 330 if that makes since. It's just enough I can slide grates in and out under the three o clock position. I didn't want to go all the way to four because my doors wouldn't have shut right and their would've been an opening for smoke to come out. As far as my hinges, I bought some weld on hinges from tractor supply and I'm going to give those a shot. The ones I really wanted to use were pretty pricey and I couldn't justify spending the money but we will see. As far as progress.... Not much. :(

Appreciate the pat on the back. It has begun to slow down so I am crossing my fingers I can get working on this project again.

Hey OkieLeo, how'd the smoker build turnout? I'm looking to do one also. It'll be my first.
