    Got the fire box completed and sealed off the back wall. I started building the divider for the grill also before I ran out of mud.

    Special mud needed for fire bricks?

    If I were burning fires in it, yes. I used type S mortar since I'm not expecting to get that hot.

    So, I've been thinking often enough about the shelf that I figured if I've not been able to stop thinking about it I will probably never be happy with it so I did some demo this morning and removed part of the center wall and front wall so I can lower the opening for the smoke cabinet, and create a ledge for the baffle to sit on.

    Great idea with the canopy. We have one of those for the beach I'm gonna break out.

    Thanks for all the kind words. How thin can I go with the doors. I'm trying to do this on the cheap. So far all I've bought is mortar and fire brick. I also bought the wood and hinges but that was like $5 total. I think I could find some diamond plate and weld some braces to keep it from flexing pretty cheap. Thick steel is high.

    I am seriously impressed, the brick work, the dedication. You'll have this puppy seasoned and ready for the Memorial Day cookout! I am not too sure about that pink bucket though..... J/K.

    I assume you've got your doors allready or are you going to make them?

    Great job!

    I used 1/8in. for the doors.   Heavy enough they won't warp with the heat.     

    You got some good progress going.

    BTW those stupid tents are not waterproof and humid rainy days and a leaky canopy you need dry mortar on hand to keep thickening it up as you go. The mud pan kept getting to thin even under the tent.

    LOL!    I've never used my tent in the rain, just to keep the sun off things when doing an event.   

    Smoker looks really good!    I can almost smell the pork!   Your neighbors are gone'a love you man!!

    A couple without the canopy. Looks better in the open. Getting exited about getting done and cleaning up the mess.
