Very nice workmanship! I really like the idea of those custom made cook chamber door hinges that continue around the door. Looks like a great idea to hold the arc shape of the door from springing.
Dave, I didn't even notice the hinges on the FB end until you pointed it out. I did notice the adjustable jack bolt on the opposite end.
This thing is very well thought out! What diameter is the CC? I would love to find some large diameter pipe laying around to use for these things. If you had to buy it, is it expensive for say a 10 foot length? Looks like 24" or something.
I'm curious to see how the RF plate goes in and whether or not there is a heat deflecting baffle below the RF plate. I am very pleased with how my build came out after receiving really good advice from Dave and Len on this aspect of the build.
I'm thinking on my next one, that I would incorporate some refractory fire brick into the walls of the FB. This would help out with the heat loss on cold days. Insulating the CC is another whole kettle of fish!
Looking forward to seeing more photos as things progress Malin!
