CarbedNotch, try some ace hardware stores in your area they might have some Ash-Crofts in stock.
You will be about 100 miles due north of me, in Hemphill.

I fired up the grill tonight It draws like hell out the 6" stack!
I love it!
Its still outside steady smoking. The temperature is really high. I wish I had some gauges.
I burnt my fingers on the fire-box door handle. I plan to cut one of my chipping hammer handles for it.
Tomorow I'm painting it and building one more rack then its off to Texas.
I'm going to hate to see it go but I have pans to build another one.

Carb
Most of the gauges have the same size thread, Just pick up a guage or 2 at Walmart. They usually go on sale in the winter. I love your work.
Make sure you can get your rig down to 225 degrees. If it runs too hot you sister may not be able to use it.

Oh, I see now. I have been out of touch with the board for a couple weeks. I like it. You will need a diverter inside to distribute the heat across the horizontal tank.

Keep up the good work!
