Some of you have probably seen some of the pictures since I've been asking random questions on other subforms here. But nothing much to say, just hear some pics in case anybody is doing some research in the future and looking for ideas. 120 gallon tank, 24x27- Firebox

I appreciate it..... it's been alot of work. Had I had the funds, in a way would have been cheaper to purchase a quality offset. In the sense that it cost me about $1000 in materials and nearly a solid month of working on it almost daily. But I'm happy now that it's finished and nearly all the daily cuts, burns, and chunks of metal to the face have stopped....
 
OH HELL YEA...

What a thing of beauty ... I'm liking the fold down exhaust stack,,, Great idea... Also liking the oil drain on the flat top... Well thought out sir ... Great Job ....
 
... able to sit back, drink a beverage, feed it wood and think "this was custom built for me" makes it all the better?
More of a "I did that" feeling......You know kinda like eating a burger that you cooked vs a McDonalds.......And yeah, a "custom built for me" feeling can also feel like that. What are you hinting at?

Awesome build. I was thinking of doing something for leveling if cooking on uneven ground. I wasn’t sure how to go about it but I just might have to barrow ur idea.
