Looks good kam!

Quick design questions: is there a reason you went to the spinners and away from the open door/sawtooth design you used on bahama mama? Are you planning to scoop or vacuum out ash? ...

Next Step was the smokestacks. Smokestacks are an interesting story for me, because this pit ultimately will reside in my suburban garage. Luckily, I had the foresight to realize that I better not mak ...

Ok all, sorry for the delay. I've recently realized my work has completely blocked Photobucket, so it's been difficult to upload photos. I'll probably need to stretch progress out over a few posts, bu ...

Last weekend I got started on the trailer, and made pretty good progress. I had hoped to get a LOT farther, but that's how this project goes I guess.

First, I cut out the trailer frame steel and co ...

Thanks Trailer Builder. Hadn't thought about the grinder specifically ...

I really like this rig, and the paint job is next level. Cool

My favorite part though has to be the incorporation of the window into the firebox. Did you just use a wood stove door from some place li ...

Final update: I checked the door fits. I used 1/8" spacers on the bottoms were the grate rails were (made for a very stable surface) and welded tabs to the doors to keep them from falling in. Yes ...

The other main accomplishment was inside the cooking chamber. I got in the tuning plate rails and 3 of the 8 slide rails for the cooking grates.

Ok, time for a few updates from Christmas.

I got a good bit accomplished (most of my list) over a nice 4 day stretch. Still slower than I'd have liked (Christmas time), but fun nonetheless.
