Not sure where to put this so that it would be seen by most but I thought we could start a thread on where to get supplies and the raw materials for the DIY builder. Of coarse we build day in day out we have some pretty good suppliers that we order from that you don't have to have a min order or business account. Also if you have suggestions on particular parts please try to include PART# and web address or a link. TIP & TRICKS - if you have built several smokers or figured out how to do something easier please be as detailed as you can. The hinge fairy came today @Top Shot BBQ we get all of our weld on bullet hinges from King Architectural for far less than other places. 7'' weld on hinge with 1/2'' pin- part# 42-FBP-180 sold in pairs other places charge per hinge $10.77 per pair. we buy 10 pair at a time so it's a little less by like a $1.50 per pair 4 3/4'' weld on hinge part# 42-FBP-120 $5.98 per pair.
