    Lookin Good Scott,

    That looks like it took some thought to make the fire box door work out. I like it. I gotta agree with ya on the size issue, I went from using my reverse to a drum and I am still amazed. There is a big difference to get used to only being able to cook 4 slabs instead of being able to fit 18. But I really like the light it and leave it method I am learning with the drum.

    Not to criticize at all, just trying to offer a tip. It looks like you are using flux core wire, two things you can try.

    1. Grab a can of cheep cooking spray and coat the area where you are going to weld.

    2. Just clean the area right where the weld will be instead of a large area.

    This will help keep the splatter from sticking, and what sticks will clean off pretty easy.

    Again I am not in any way degrading your project. Just tryin to help out. When I first started welding with wire I had bad splatter and sometimes a piece of wire sticking out. I left it since it was inside and no one was going to see it. Bad deal there. I reached in the smoker for something and jammed that little piece of wire right under my fingernail. I hate it when I get hurt from something I caused.

    Happy Smokes with the new rig.
