Making a couple 120 gallon offsets

Got a bit more work done today. The pipe between the two was a bit more of a bear to get in than I thought. I cut WAY too much material out in a few places (5/16" gaps in two spots - eek!) At long last though, it's in. With all of the gaps and my terrible welding skills, the outside welds look like a dumpster fire. Today I prepped the inside of the seams for welding and, once those are complete, I'll grind and re-weld the outside. I know I'm bad, but they look terrible, LOL. I'd be embarrassed to have anyone see them.

I cut the exhaust end and dry-fit the plenum. Hopefully I'll have time to come to the shop and finish out the welding on the FB to CC tube, finish the legs (adjustable feet and whatnot and start welding on the exhaust. After that it's just the easy stuff left!

PS: I'm super glad that I didn't start making both smokers at the same time. The lessons I'm learning this go around will be VERY helpful when I start the second one!

I've been slowly making progress!

Flipped the smoker over and finished out the rest of the welding of the underside



Got it rolled back over on its feet and got back to work on the stack.



Aside from my welding ablities (or lack thereof), I'm pretty happy with how things are coming along. This thing aught to MOVE some air! The fb to cc opening is almost 13" round!

I did a little work on the door for the end of the FB.











Test fit looks promising! I still need to make the slide supports for the vent covers and make the covers as well. But it's a decent start!

It's ready to come home for a good burn-in and a few trial cooks! I'll make sure there are no last-minute changes and then off to blasting and paint it goes!

Started with one and a half 120 gallon propane tanks and turned them into a smoker 10' wide, 8' tall, 30" deep and roughly 1,200 lbs. A total of 2,650 sq inches of cooking grates.






Plus, a little personal touch with the handles!



I'll report back after testing, but I expect this will be my last update for a while.
