The cylinder and ends I had cut and rolled by the company I bought the metal from Patton Steele.  They cut and rolled it at a facility I think down in Orange County and transferred it around until it got to my local store.  The cylinder and the ends as well as the metal for the firebox cost around $372 if I remember right.  They even welded the cylinder together for no extra charge.

With the price of steel you did good.

Your smoker is looking like it came out of a factory.  Only thing I'm not seeing is a counter weight on the door.  I wasn't going to put them on but my wife said no way....doors too heavy.  I'm really glad I added them.  doors used to weigh 60 lbs now around 5.

 

I used flax seed oil to season.  Did some checking into seasoning and got the following:

 

Build a fire and run dry 300+degrees  for 3-4 hours, cool down to around 100 or so and then spray with flax oil (can be found in health food store) then raise temp back up to 300+ for another 3-6 hours and you're done.  The flax seed oil gets black and rock hard with the heat.

Finally got a chance to cook in the new smoker I cooked some baby back ribs.  I think that I am still at the beginning of the learning curve they turned out really tasty the whole family liked them I took some pictures to show the cook.  Thanks to everybody that helped me with my build.  GB

Looks really nice! Did the smoker maintain consistent temps? My build is 24" also but a foot longer. Can't wait to cook on it.

Got to like it when a plan comes together. Great looking cooker. Now you get to eat your mistakes instead of grinding them off. I hope those ribs tasted
as good as they look.

Smoker looks good, BBQ looks great I would say your build and cook turned out. The more you cook on your smoker the more comfortable you will become.
