Alrighty, i got the base just about completed tonight and also made one rack. I think i will also add an additional rack to thow a brisket or two or some ribs up top when I need to do a large amount of food
the base, still need to install the wheels, weld some expanded steel for a bottom shelf and weld the smoker to it but my wife is 4'11" and 95 pounds and this freak of nature has got to be 400 pounds plus. Hopefully the neighbor can give me a hand tomorrow.
Rack 1, I will make another about 8-10" above this one.
ok, it's done! well sort of. Bringing it to be sandblasted in an hour and the to the paintbooth. Hopefull will season it tomorrow an install both mohagany racks, bottom and the top folding. here it is without paint the mohagany.
No air vents! just 1 - 1 3/8" hole for the 25CFM blowerfan hooked up to the guru
it's all painted just put the finish on the mahogany and gonna install tomorrow and season it. Then tuesday she will get her maiden voyage!
One of the tires has a bad tube that why the jack is under her. I am going to get the tires filled with foam and not have to deal with inflating them all the time.
and the almost finished product.
WooHoo, it works and darn well also. Ran it today for 12 hours with the guru controller. This thang takes some time to warm up but once warm she maintained temp within a couple degrees the whole day with no constant attendance other than to get her PAM on!. Both side of the chamber are within a couple degrees of each other so no real hot spots although the upper rack was about 7-8 degrees warmer than the lower.
I am gonna do some chicken and ribs for the boys at work tommorow for her maiden voyage and then get the forklift to load it and bring home. I will need a bunch of hands to get this beast off the truck even with 4 wheels.
