Build is looking awesome! Great work. I am starting a build myself and was wondering what the size of the horizontal was.

Finally got some time to work on the pit. I still have to season it, but other than that it is done(I HOPE). I am really looking forward to seasoning it Friday and Cooking Saturday.

I added a grate and log warming shelf to the firebox


Added a burner in a slide out drawer under the vertical cooking chamber. Suprisingly this was able to hold 75lbs worth of lead shot no problem






This is where I added my propane storage and where my sink cabinet will be. I found some pretty used aluminum deck plate and plan to build my sink cabinet out of that.



Here is the sink set up.




Wash inside and out


More to come............

Baby Huey your build job came out great looking.

I see your (I think your cold water tank) did you
put a hot water tank on your pit also.

Baby Huey I need to know if the paint was Stilwell red
our just red paint Smile

Always like looking at pits that are pained red.

I will say on my next pit I am going with maybe a new color ???

Stilwell red Chuck

Chuck, Here are some pictures of the latch on my door.

I tacked the latch together and closed the door to try it out. One of the tacks broke and I almost never got it open again, I thought I was going to have to cut the door off. it finally came loose and opened

now that it is welded and fit, it does work very well.
