    Great looking build Zeeker, looking forward to seeing it in action! Thanks for posting your pics. [​IMG]
  3. Great looking smoker so far. The firebox door on the same side as the cooking chamber is interesting. Are you going to use a drain pipe for the drip plate? Keep up the good work!

    Good looking smoker. Looking forward to seeing it in action.
  7. I see your firebox door latch has what looks like a rubber tip - I don't think that will last long.

    I built mine very similar to yours - 40gal air compressor tank, and a 16" cube of 5/16" plate with the firebox door on the front. The only thing I don't like is when I open the firebox door, hot air/gas come out of the front, and "cooks" my thermometer on that side of the cook chamber.
  8. NICE BUILD and sweet shop.....cannot wait to put my shop together.

    Have you considered using your firebox to cook/heat sauce or sides? I saw one where the guy cooked stuff in a pot directly on the front half of the firebox (more heat) and then on the back half he had about a 1/2" spacer topped with expanded metal just to keep stuff warm (less heat with the air space). He said that it works perfectly to keep sauce, sides, etc. warm when cooking.

    Your project looks great with nice clean welds. Cannot wait to see the finished product.
