Here is the BEAST I just finished building. Waiting on gaskets to get here and I will be firing her up. It is a clone of a Backwoods. Just alot bigger. Cook chamber is 42" tall 24" deep and 34" wide. Has 51 square feet of cooking grid if all 9 racks are used. The racks are 4" apart so it will work great for ribs, chicken wings, or briskets. If I am doing Butts I will need to remove every other rack. Will be powered by a CyberQ with a 25cfm Pit bull fan. Charcoal basket is 36" x 24" x 5" deep. Welded in Minion Divider made of 3/8" thick steel 5" tall. Got to paint it tomorrow. Also waiting on my Tel-Tru thermometer. I used 1 1/2" Mineral wool super dense insulation. Fire box is 1/4" steel. Bottom of water pan is 1/4" steel. Internal sides are 1/8" steel. All outside skins are 16 gauge steel.
