    Thanks ! Actually I'm almost done with it . The bottom part is brick I had extra and bought the cypress to build the top part with . Still have a few things to do to finish .
    The fire pit will be able to use propane or wood . That's a 10" 300# end blind for the heat with burner under .[​IMG][/IMG]

    Almost !

    Getting closer ! Finished putting in the unistrut for the trays , and finished the sausage racks .
    And I put lil stats over the cracks in the roof , still have to put the tin on top and add the smoke stacks .
    This is one of the grills , hopefully be finished with one by tomorrow .
    Ok that is the tray to hold the wood , when I decide to use wood instead of propane . Any ideas for a drip pan incase I decide to roast a hog ??

    The red brick is a nice touch. Your rack rails are a great idea, love it.

    Choupic, morning....    Hey, think about HVAC heat registers in place of a stack....   Install them on the side walls near the roof...   A stack could drip condensate on your food.... Not good....  sidewall vents don't drip on food.....   And near the bottom of the side walls also...  Dave
