I finished my Backwoods clone build last night and brought it home this morning and I figured I would share some pics of her. based my design off of some plans I found in another backwoods clone build thread and modified them to fit my needs.
I went with 16 gauge hot rolled steel (should have used cold rolled) 14 gauge rectangle tubing and 3/4"x1/8" angle iron the total build cost was under $500 including all the hardware. The stainless top was some leftover from a previous project so it is not included in the cost.
The cook chamber is 18" wide by 24" deep and 24" tall and the firebox is 18"x24"x12" with a fire basket that is 16.5"x22"x8.5" and should be able to hold about 35 lbs of Kingsford. I made the firebox so big so that I can hopefully get 12+ hour burn times without refueling so that I can run it while I am at work and not need tho ask my wife to add charcoal. the intake is a 2" coupling that was cut in half and a piece of flat bar tack welde to the back of it so that I can use the threaded damper that is in there now or I can take the disk out and thread in a 2" pipe and a ball valve if I ever decide to I also built in a bbq guru port so that if I decide to get one down the road I wont have to use an adapter. I also made an adapter that you can see is in the last picture for my pitmaster iq110 that will attach to the hose and plug into the guru port.
