Welcome to SMF, dberry-glad that you have joined us.

Most rigs that I have seen with rotating shelfs have been custom units-they have either been home fabricated units or made by a Pit building company and they modified the pit for rotating shelfs.

Check out the link for a list of Pit Builders.

Welcome grab a cold one and jump right into the fray. these are a great bunch of folks, and remember the only dumb question is the one you don't ask, and "Do you have any SPARE change?"

AWESOME!!!!!!
I like it. Does that have a deflector and tuning plates? How consistent is the temp from end to end?

I have another project in mind after I've completed my little smoker. Which by the way, I didn't think was little until I saw yours. I will share details of my next one when I get it all in my head.

no deflector,or tuning just straight pipe. not sure about temp from one end to the other but i will let u know,., i dont think there's to much differance, I know it holds at 200-225 where the therm is in the center. I'll be useing it again on the weekend of the 18th smoking turkeys so I'll have multiple gauges in it for temp

I could hold that temp too, but the closer to firebox I got the hotter the temp was and vise versa for the other end. Now I have even temps end to end with a 2 to 3 degree difference from top to bottom.
I am getting very close with finishing mine for good. I have to paint it yet and of making a hickory shelf for it.

cool, I'd thought about putting a plate on the end of the fire box to see if I can get some of the heat off the front edge of the self
