    Howdy y'all.  

    I'm a long time lurker, but new to the forum.  I got a 30" MES for Christmas, but used an offset and upright woody for years.  I built a cabinet for my MES to keep the cold outside temps from affecting the smoking, also to give it a weather resistant home and storage for my supplies.  

    Pics or it didnt happen, right? 

    Here's the cabinet, It will look like the cooler stand to the right of it in time.  Just need some metal straps, some signs, stain and a little time to do it - too busy cookin'


    Inside, with storage beside for racks, and below for chips and other stuffs


    The Lid lifts all the way to about 120* for access to the controls, but also to let out the smoke.  During the winter, it will stay mostly closed like this, but the summer will have it wide open. 


    Chip tray access


    QVIEW!


    QVIEW, TOO!


    See ya 'round

    Welcome Corey!  That is a sweet cabinet for the MES!  That Qview looks amazing too, is that a bacon wrapped chicken?

    Welcome to SMF, Corey!

    The cabinet is top notch!

    I like the bacon wrapped chicken, great idea.

    What else can we find to wrap in bacon!

    Glad to have you with us!

    Hey Gary!  

    Glad to see another NTXan!  I've been to Whitehouse before, I used to be a bass player and played all kinds of C&W dancehalls, stages, trailers, etc...
