    A friend picked up some of the latches for me but I didn't take the time to check them out yet. I'm glad to hear they will work. Thanks! Yes, its a galvanized tub. I put 6-8" of sand in the bottom and only hickory coals. There was essentially no heat, you could carry the tub with bare hands...

    Well, I've changed things up a bit since I've begun my project. I've built the walls using 2x4's instead of 2x2's. The outside dia. is a bit over 4'x4'. The dogear fence panels have worked very well for the outside covering, installed in a horizontal manner. First I planed the edges true, taking...
