    Well this week was shot for working on the smoker!!! First family came in to town for a few days then the weather man struck fear into everyone in south Florida with this wanna be storm. So I man to get a few things done. Finished the FB door and ash pan (need to trim) and got the racks started.[​IMG]

    That is a sweet looking smoker, I love the bronzy look after you stripped it.  It would look really cool if you could maintain that somehow (Do they make High Temp Urethane for Steel or something?).

    2 Questions:

    1) How did you made the "Cover" for the Firebox Intakes?  Did you bend the steel, or is it two pieces welded?  I assume there is another piece that will slide inside there?

    2) It looks like the cutout for your Plenum is on the left, and the Firebox is on the right, is that just my eyes playing tricks on me?  I thought the Stack should be on the FB side in a RF?

    Sods,

    Thanks Yeah the natural patina look would be cool but I'm sure it wont last long... Anyways the side inlets are one piece with a slide damper. I can't take credit for making them as I have limited tools. I ordered them from BBQ Smoker Supply for like $40 plus shipping. I could start to try and make look that good for $40....Then I just welded expanded metal on the inside.

    The Plenum is on the side with the firebox it's just that this tank had so many valves that it was easier to cut them all out. I will plug that up soon.

    Thanks

    Was able to get some work on the grill today. Finished the racks, the ash pan and got the firebox attached to the CC.

    Dave I think it will need one for better flow. I was thinking of 3 small 1'' holes with a slide cover. Do you think that will be enough?

    Forgot I took these yesterday of the stack attached. I made a damper for the top and added the mascot. Blue pig BBQ of course my son came up with name and now it's stuck.
