Exactly why I picked it lol I agree with you 100%. I feel like 1/4 inch would be more for like a trailer/smoker build but idk that's just my opinion.

Those look nice

I like the Franken smoker name.

I'm no bbq expert, but it seems your door is huge.

I made some smaller grills so you could lift them out. I used 3/8 solid square stock. With the 911 expanded metal. More then strong enough. Advantage is lower profile. Which gives you more room.

Just picked up an old propane tank today. Has almost same measurements as your tank. Will be watching close hoping to build almost exact same design without the insulation. Also picked up some S.S. grate to use in it. will try to post pics on my own thread so I'm not hi-jacking this one!

Your grill looks fantastic, have you gotten a lot of use? I'm building a 24 inch. I was wondering what angle did u use for the legs. I'm new the welding side of this, trying to get all the help I can get. Thanks

Got allot done today got both doors set and welded on. I used a hatchet for my handle. All that's left is some odds and ends stuff, damper and gasket for the firebox, and clean and paint and it's pretty much done!! :)

Well I broke my foot a couple weeks ago so I haven't been able to finish it yet. Once I'm all healed I'm gonna put some finishing touches on it and season it and get my first cook under my belt

That's a really nice build, you have some great fabrication skills.


Hope your foot heals up soon and you can get some meat in that baby!

Well today is the day finally firing her up for the first time it's a long time coming. I have a 7 pound pork butt, threw a nice simple rub on it and an easy injection, so far its looking pretty good just spritzed it with some apple juice and am about an hour an a half away from wrapping it in some foil. So Excited!!
