I am using 1/4 plate on my FB. People I have talked to people say it is not really needed in my case.
Just seasoned and ran my smoker twice to see how the heating and fire management behaves, no warping yet.
Anybody have a different opinion?
Thanks for the feed back. I went with the 1/4" for weight. I got a grate deal on my steel locally scrape dealer had some sheet steel. I got one sheat 5'x 8'x 1/4" & 5'x 9' x 1/4 , plus a 4' x 10' sheet or expanded metal for my wood box.
I'm in the same boat. I will probably just do a wood shack for now. My plan is to go commercial, so I am researching all the fun government regs so I don't have to redo anything. Eventually I see myself building a trailer.
