Custom built

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Thought I'd show off a grill the company I work for built and donated to the local public golf course. It was designed by one of our engineers and fabricated by our weld & machine shops. You can cook with propane, charcoal or use it as a smoker. It rotates 360 degrees on the base to adjust for wind direction.

The flames were the fabricators idea, not in the original plan! tongue.gif

Ya, only an engineer would toss away perfectly good hinges and install a pulley system PDT_Armataz_01_25.gif
Really, very nice cooker, plan's on another?? Curious as to how it works, not sure how you could smoke on it, will you get a chance to see it in action?? biggrin.gif

They used pulleys for the upper portion because it weighs over 500lbs. It's built from 1/4" steel, the entire assembly weighs close to 1 ton.

I've not had a chance to see it in action (don't play golf!), I can't say if they've ever tried smoking anything with it or not. I doubt they build another, we're in the business of making electricity, building grills isn't really what we're about.

Nice looking, do you think you'll get any pics of them cooking on it?

i see hinges in one shot bubba........i think maybe the pulleys are to use this as a grill surface for BUNCHES of steaks burgers hotdogs......my home golf course has steak nite every thursday..........and maybe the hinge door to have a opening for misting/mopping when smoking?

the i bet the cost of building this would be prohibitive..........

would love to see q-view of this in action also........

That looks awesome sisco!
I like the fact that you can move it for wind direction. My cooker is so heavy, it's a pain to move.

Nice size, I like it !!! Pretty tough for someone to steal that out of the back yard.

THAT is a manly grill. You just don't "spritz" ANYTHING on a grill like that!

Almost forgot, we've got another one, built on a trailer. It's available for free use by just about anyone that asks to borrow it. They built a griddle to fit over the top of the cooking grate, now & then at work we cook breakfast for 150 employees on it. I'll see if I can find some pics of it in action.

Nice looking smoker Sisco - I sure hope that cable never lets go while someones mopping or turning though! Any safeties on that system?

Sorry I used to be an elevator/crane inspector - seen some nasty accidents.
