    hey all,i'm new to this site but been building and welding things for years now.

    built a 80 gallon offset patio smoker about 2 years ago.1/4 plate fire box,3/16 tank,ash pan..etc.

      I will post pics at some point in time. im in the midst of mounting it on a trailer axle to make it more easy to move around[its very heavy]. I only have little 10inch air tires on it at this time.i picked up a small trailer to modify for this project,but I have to wait until it gets a little cooler outside. i'm in CONVERSE,TX. 20 miles from SAN ANTONIO,TX. and its just to hot to be welding,fab.,etc..

     the winter here is much nicer to do these things.I'm originally from PENNSYLVANIA,been in TEXAS 7years now.Still not use to the summer 100+ temps. just a little about me and what I am planning.

      thank you
