I figure I should contribute as this site has given me a ton of info. my build has currently spanned over a year and really sat dormant for most of that time. I've recently picked up where I left off and I'm determined to get this thing done by May 2015. below are some pics of the progress. (2014) CC and FB sliced. after this i capped the ends and welded the FB on. Then some other projects took precedence. Built the legs and mounted some old cast pulleys for wheels. Ant this is where I'm pretty well at now. Next on the agenda will be finishing the lower shelf, build hinges, cut out the door on CC and FB and figure out what I'm doing for the chimney (I've posed the question here: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/184042/chimney-length). Still plenty to do but 4 weeks should be plenty of time.
