Howdy fellas and non fellas. Birthday coming next month. Got a text from my good friend Robert aka tx smoker tx smoker a couple weeks ago saying he wanted to build me something. Gave me plenty of options but all I could think was "I always wanted a Santa Maria Grill". Robert got started almost immediately so he could get it to me before my birthday as a gift. Here's some pics of the build........I'll try my best to keep in order but I'm having beers so you might just have to figure it out on your own lol

He doesn't like to admit it but he has pretty darn good fabrication skills. Something to certainly cherish. Happy early B-day 🍻

Dang good looking grill! You're gonna have fun cooking on that! Coming from a newbie welder...I see an addition being built at Robert's house for metal fabricating.
