Plenum getting fabricated up:
Done...and stack welded on...
Got the deflector plate fab'd and installed and the tuning plate rails installed.....but then ran out of daylight to cut out the tuning plates. Oh well...it was FINALLY time to light a fire. Just some testing to make sure she was going to flow ok:
Now I just need to finish the tuning plates, lid handles, firebox-damper handles, and consider adding a quick shelf to the front. After that it's just a matter of sending her off for blasting and paint and then on to seasoning and actually cooking! :)
